Mary Elizabeth Winstead Set to "Make It Happen" In Burlesque Flick

by | July 11, 2007 | Comments

If you watched "Live Free or Die Hard" and thought, "Gee, what I’d really like to see is Mary Elizabeth Winstead with less clothing and more dancing," this item is for you: Variety is reporting that Winstead will star in "Make It Happen," a project referred to as "a dance movie set in the world of burlesque."

"Happen" will be directed by Darren Grant, most recently seen behind the cameras for "Diary of a Mad Black woman," and the script comes courtesy of Duane Adler, screenwriter of "Step Up" and "Save the Last Dance" (turns out they’re two separate movies — we’re as surprised as you).

In the film, which will be released by The Weinstein Company, Winstead won’t just be shaking her moneymaker. There’s a plot arc here, people! As Variety reports:

Winstead plays a small-town woman who moves to Chi with dreams of entering the Chicago School of Dance but winds up working in a burlesque club. According to a plot description provided by TWC, the club "proves to be a place of conflict and self-discovery."

"Make It Happen" starts filming this August, and is presumably scheduled for a 2008 release.
