‘Twilight”s Christian Serratos Lands Lead In ‘Lip Service’

Who needs sparkly vampires? Sure, Christian Serratos got her break in “The Twilight Saga,” but now that the final installment’s filming is basically finito, the actress is biting into a series of exciting new roles. Last November it was announced that Christian had landed a part in Brenda Hampton’s new ABC Family pilot (as yet untitled), and now the 20-year-old has nabbed the starring role in a feature film!

Christian will star alongside Ross Thomas (“Soul Surfer”) in the teen rom-com “Lip Service” from Estilo Productions. The story centers on a young singer named Roxie (Christian) who’s convinced by a brash record exec (Ross) to lend her vocals to a track purportedly sung by no-talent celebrity Sienna Monetz. (In other words, she’s totally going to help pull a Milli Vanilli.) Of course, outside the recording studio, hi-jinks (and romance!) ensue.

The film, executive produced by George Caceres, also stars Rachele Brooke Smith (“Bring It On”) and Eric Roberts. Production begins soon, with the film’s writer, Carlos Portugal (“Meet the Browns”), in the director’s chair.

We’re always happy to see our favorite “Twilight” stars expand beyond the beloved franchise, and with a co-star as smokin’ hot as Ross, consider our ticket already purchased.
