The "Moonstruck" Oscar winner would play the owner of a Los Angeles burlesque club in the Screen Gems film. Christina Aguilera will make her film debut in the lead role, a small-town girl who works at the burlesque and begins to follow her dreams.
The news coincided with Cher's birthday — the singer turned 63 on Wednesday. The star will celebrate tonight by going to work, with a concert at the Colloseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
