Kristen Bell Will Go Toe-to-Toe with Christina Aguilera in BURLESQUE

     October 8, 2009


THR reports that Kristen Bell has been cast opposite Christina Aguilera in Steve Antin’s upcoming musical drama, “Burlesque”.  The story follows a small-town girl (Aguilera) who sings her way to a LA neo-burlesque club where she finds love and success.  Bell would play her rival, Nikki, the loose-cannon lead dancer who gets shoved out of the spotlight when Aguilera’s character comes along.  Trailblazer Darren Aronofsky has already found a way to settle disputes between hot, female dancers with his upcoming movie “Black Swan”: angry, aggressive sex.  “Burlesque” would be wise to follow Aronofsky’s lead.
