The young beauty from "The Blue Lagoon" has certainly found her way back into the pop culture orbit this year. Her recently canceled NBC series "Lipstick Jungle" received an outpour of fan appreciation when it seemed the stylish show's fate in TV heaven was sealed, and, just two days ago, the actress made a speech at Michael Jackson's memorial that left a major impact on everyone's hearts.
Today, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Brooke would be making a return to the box office after being absent for ten years from mainstream film.
In the family comedy "Furry Vengeance," she's set to star as the wife of a real-estate developer (Brendan Fraser), who battles it out with a group of raccoons after he invades their territory. Other names attached to the flick include Dick Van Dyke ("Night at the Museum"), Ken Jeong (who played the hilarious trunk bandit, Mr. Chow in "The Hangover) and Samantha Bee.
Roger Kumble, who will direct the project, previously helmed the 2002 comedy starring Cameron Diaz and Christina Applegate, "The Sweetest Thing," and 1999's high school drama classic "Cruel Intentions." So, lets hope he can put the same interesting spin on family comedy that he did with relationships and backstabbing!
