Jessica Biel Becomes "A Woman of No Importance"



Myriad Films has confirmed that Jessica Biel is taking over Lindsay Lohan's role in its rom-com flick "A Woman of No Importance."

Snatching the chance dropped by Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Biel has given a positive sign to take over a role recently left by her fellow starlet in "A Woman of No Importance."

MTV reports that Myriad Films, the studio where the project is produced at, has confirmed that "The Illusionist" star is joining the cast to replace Lohan for the role of Hester Worsley. Lohan quitted the flick last week following her decision to focus more on her rehab which she has been undergoing since January.

Based on Oscar Wilde's play of the same title, "Importance" centers on a woman whose past comes back to haunt her when the man who left her with a child becomes the potential employer of their illegitimate son. It will be the first Hollywood film feature to adapt the play, which was first performed at London's Haymarket Theatre in 1893.

Filming is expected to begin later this year for a planned 2008 release. "Double Jeopardy" helmer Bruce Beresford is in charge to direct from Howard Himelstein's script with Annette Bening and Sean Bean also starring.
