Jessica Simpson is ‘Major Movie Star’

Avi Lerner’s Millennium Films has signed Steve Miner (“Lake Placid,” “Halloween H2O”) to direct “Major Movie Star,” starring Jessica Simpson as a Marine Corps enlistee. Shooting starts next month in Louisiana with the film centering on a pampered star who decides to enlist in the Marines to win approval from a producer and a studio who considers her unsuitable for an upcoming military-themed movie. Upon arriving at Camp Pendleton, she realizes she’s made a mistake but decides to persist so she won’t let her country down.
