Leona Lewis Making Foray Into Movie World With 'Holiday!'
Leona Lewis is linking up with Katy Brand for a feel-good British musical movie.
Leona Lewis will make her film debut in a new musical titled Holiday! From the team behind the successful StreetDance franchise. The movie - described as a classic feel-good flick - also stars comedian Katy Brand and will feature the songs of Madonna and Cyndi Lauper.
Directed by Max Giwa and Dania Pasquini, the movie could help Lewis recapture her past glory. She became one of biggest pop singers in the world following her X-Factor triumph, though her latest single Lovebird failed to chart in the Top 200. She is said to be readying a Christmas album, according to the Independent.
"Feeling very lucky to be part of a project in which everyone is so passionate and supportive of one another," she tweeted of her movie role, "I'm loving the experience."
Another post read: "Just wrapped for the day! So excited for you guys to see this, such great moments being captured. Lucky to work with amazingly talented people." It is still not clear which role Lewis is playing.
Holiday!, which shoots in the UK and Italy, will feature songs including Wham's Wake Me Up Before You Go Go and Cyndi Lauper's Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. In all honestly, it sounds horrendous - but who knows, it could end being.ok?
Leona Lewis is still best known for her hit Bleeding Love, which was number one in more than 30 countries. She also scored chart hits with Trouble and Collide.
