Washington (ANI): Singer/actress Cher has been roped in along with Christina Aguilera to star in a musical film named Burlesque. According to Variety, Aguilera, 28, will play a small-town girl from Iowa who moves to L.A. and lands work at a neo-burlesque club run by Cher.

Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper said he has been lobbying Cher for years to return to films.

"She brings a soulfulness and gravitas to this character that will ground the story," People magazine quoted Culpepper as saying. "The only person who was more excited than I am is Christina," he added.
