Bell to star in new dance comedy

The Heroes actress has signed on to the Evan Greenberg film, about an ambitious, slightly overweight ballerina with an overbearing mother, played by Bell.

The part of Bell’s daughter has yet to be cast.

Producer Dubiecki tells the Hollywood Reporter, “Kristen’s combination of comedic timing and authenticity will bring this character to the next level, and give this crossover appeal.”

Bell will show off her dance skills in November (10), as the rival to Christina Aguilera’s dancer character in movie musical Burlesque.

Shooting on Mirlitons is scheduled to begin this winter (10).
