Looks like Kate Hudson won't settle for being just almost famous. The current It Girl, whose breakthrough was her part as the naïve groupie in Cameron Crowe's "Almost Famous," has signed on to the war drama "Four Feathers," Daily Variety reports.

Hudson will join the red hot cast including "The Patriot's" Heath Ledger and "American Beauty's" Wes Bentley.

The film, based on a novel by A.E. Mason, concerns a British officer in Sudan who seeks to disprove his cowardice by infiltrating enemy territory and rescuing his captured comrades.

'DINNER' IS SERVED: The Hollywood Reporter says that Greg Kinnear, who was last seen as the soap opera stud in "Nurse Betty," will possibly star in the HBO cable movie "Dinner With Friends." The film is an adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play of the same name by Donald Margulies.
