The wife of Kris Humphries has secured a role in a movie about a marriage counselor who cheats on her husband because she is bored with her own marriage life.
Kim Kardashian has landed a bigger role in a new big screen film. Lionsgate Films confirmed that the TV reality star has locked a part in Tyler Perry's upcoming movie "The Marriage Counselor", which will mark Perry's 13th collaboration with the studio.
Adapted from Perry's tenth stage plays, "Marriage Counselor" follows Judith, an Ivy League-educated marriage counselor who is bored with her own marriage life. She then breaks her professional code and cheats on her accountant husband with a smooth talking client before realizing that she has made a big mistake.
Deadline reported that Jurnee Smollett will play the female lead character, while Kardashian is set to star as Ava, a co-worker who gives Judith a make-over and new confidence as the protagonist struggles with her personal issues. The movie is scheduled to begin filming on October 26 in Atlanta.
Kardashian is well-known for her reality show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians". However, this is not the first time she makes an appearance in a feature film. She has been seen previously in such movies as "Deep in the Valley" and "Disaster Movie".
