07.30.07 by REELZ
Hollywood.com is reporting that Scarlett Johansson (Lost in Translation, Match Point) has been tapped to star in a film adaptation of porn star Jenna Jameson's biography, How to Make Love Like a Porn Star. Word ist that Jameson personally picked the buxom 22-year-old to play her.
However, People is stating that Johansson's rep is denying that she has been cast, or that she has even seen a script. Says the rep: "She has no interest in playing the role."
And speaking of famous blondes, Paris Hilton has signed on to join Paul Sorvino (Nixon, Bulworth) and Alexa Vega (Spy Kids, The Deep End of the Ocean) in the cast Repo! The Genetic Opera reports Variety.
Directed by Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw), Repo! is a thriller/musical set in 2056 when the only humans who can survive a plague are those that can afford organ transplants. Hilton, who will sing in the piece, plays the daughter of an organ transplant magnate. Sounds interesting...
And finally, MTV reports that Tyrese Gibson (Transformers) and the unlikely Joan Allen (The Contender, Pleasantville) will be joining Jason Statham (Crank, The Italian Job) in Death Race 3000, Paul W.S. Anderson's remake of the 1975 David Carradine and Sylvester Stallone cult classic.
Gibson and Statham will play two tough guys (in a cross country race where you score points by running over pedestrians) who have to go up against Allen. Said Anderson of his female lead: "She kicks the most ass out of everybody."
