Considering Milla Jovovich's talent for slaughtering hordes of undead in the numerous "Resident Evil" installments, the title of her newest film is very appropriate! But she won't be packing guns and knives in this one. According to Variety, Jovovich is set to play an alcoholic stripper in "Keep Coming Back," a comedy that marks the directorial debut of actor William H. Macy.
The story centers around a sheltered young man who joins an Alcoholics Anonymous group solely to be close to Jovovich, the woman of his dreams. I'm sure there's a lot of guys out there who would happily pretend to be alcoholics to get close to Jovovich, so Macy's film scores a gold star for realism.
The part of the young man has yet to be cast, but Macy and Steve Buscemi will also star, though their roles are unspecified. Will they be alcoholics? Will Macy play the man's protective father? Your guess is as good as mine.
In her quest to rid the world of zombies, Jovovich hasn't had much time to take on comedic parts. But she was hilarious in her "Zoolander" cameo, and adorable as Leeloo in "The Fifth Element," so I can't wait to see her get a whole movie to be goofy in.
How about you, readers? Or did I lose you at the part where you found out she plays a stripper?
