As the supermodel quits from Spike Lee directed-drama 'Miracle at St. Anna' because of sheduling conflicts, the star of 'The Last King of Scotland' is chosen to fill the empty spot.

Kerry Washington has joined the cast of Spike Lee directed-drama "Miracle at St. Anna". According to Blackfilm, the 30-year-old actress is reportedly replacing the original cast member, supermodel Naomi Campbell who is dropping her involvement in the project due to scheduling conflicts.

"Miracle" is a film about four African-American Buffalo soldiers of the 92nd Infantry Division trapped in a small tuscan village on the Gothic Line during the Italian Campaign of World War II. The drama film that also deals with the massacre of Sant'Anna di Stazzema is starred by Derek Luke, Michael Ealy, Laz Alonso, John Leguizamo and John Turturro among others. Added also to the cast is Michael K. Williams who appeared in "Gone Baby Gone" and in HBO's series "The Wire".

Prior to "Miracle", Washington has once worked for Lee in 2004 comedy-drama feature film "She Hate Me". The film credits of the BET Award-nominated actress include Jamie Foxx starring-biopic "Ray", Forest Whitaker's drama "The Last King of Scotland" and Julia Stiles and Sean Patrick Thomas' musical drama "Save the Last Dance".
