'Blonde' adds more color with Miller


Penelope Ann Miller has joined the cast of "Blonde Ambition," a loose remake of the 1988 film "Working Girl" being directed by Scott Marshall and starring Jessica Simpson.

Also cast in the film are Luke Wilson, Andy Dick, Rachael Leigh Cook and Jamie Kennedy.

Miller is playing the conniving boss of Simpson's character, who is making her way through the corporate world.

Nu Image is producing. Sony Pictures is in talks to distribute the film, though whether it is theatrical or straight-to-DVD has yet to be determined.

Miller next stars opposite Chevy Chase and Armand Assante in ThinkFilm's slapstick comedy "Funny Money," which is set to be released Jan. 19, and next appears in Columbia Pictures' psychological thriller "The Messengers," opposite Dylan McDermott. Her credits include "Carlito's Way" and "Kindergarten Cop."

Miller is repped by APA and Untitled Entertainment.
