Willa Ford to Star as Anna Nicole Smith

by | April 12, 2007 | Comments

I guess I’m about to come across like a clueless old coot, but I have no idea who Willa Ford is. Reliable sources indicate that she’s a singer who was on "Dancin’ with the Stars" recently. Also, she’ll be playing Anna Nicole Smith in an indie biopic that’s about to get underway.

Anna Nicole’s been dead for a few weeks now, and I guess that’s all the "grace period" the filmmakers need. Keoni Waxman will direct "Anna Nicole," and he’ll do backed by producer Elie Samaha. The film will cover all of the blonde’s adult life, from Playboy to Guess Jeans to billionaire husbands to egregious plastic surgery to drunkenness and reality TV shows.

Can’t say I’m surprised that someone’s jumping on this story so soon — but I was sure it would have been an ABC Movie of the Week, or maybe a Lifetime Channel Premiere.
