Los Angeles-born actress Penelope Ann Miller has been added into the "Blonde Ambition" cast.
Brightens the already-sparkled cast, Penelope Ann Miller has landed a deal to take supporting part in "Blonde Ambition", a loose remake of the 1988 film "Working Girl" developed under Nu Image banner.
Joining the likes of Jessica Simpson, Luke Wilson, Andy Dick, Rachael Leigh Cook, and Jamie Kennedy in the lineup, Miller is plotted to play the conniving boss of Simpson's character. The movie itself revolves around a young woman who tries to work her way to the top from the bottom in the corporate world.
Currently filming in Shreveport, Louisiana to meet a summer theatrical release, the flick has already had Scott Marshall on board to direct based on script penned by Matthew Flanagan, David McHugh, Jessica O'Toole, and Amy Rardin. Meanwhile, Sony Pictures is in negotiations to distribute, though whether it is theatrical or straight-to-DVD has yet to be determined.
