Filming will start in New York next month.
Earlier this year, Catherine was cast as a villainous "arch conservative" in 'Rock of Ages'.
The Welsh actress - who underwent treatment for Bipolar II disorder, also known as manic depression - will play an evil character who wants to close down "rock and roll in Los Angeles", director Adam Shankman has confirmed.
He said: "It's a character that we only really came to in the last month. The character was invented to streamline the stories.
"She is this hardcore, moral majority, arch-conservative who wants to shut down rock 'n roll in the great city of Los Angeles."
Catherine - who is married to actor Michael Douglas - is also due to star in 'Playing the Field' and gambling movie 'Lay the Favorite'.
