British TV babe Kelly Brook has landed her first major film role - starring opposite her actor boyfriend Jason Statham.

The 23-year-old SMALLVILLE star has landed the role of a sexy heroine battling Statham's supervillain in SEMPER OCCULTUS - after ex-SPICE GIRL GERI Halliwell was axed from the role.

A source on the movie says, "Semper is inspired by James Bond, but turns the cliched, sexist spy stuff on its head because the main character is a woman.

"Kelly has everything we are looking for - she's sexy, has a great English accent and is a very good actress.

"Jason is an experienced actor and will make a convincing villain. Let's hope they don't take on-screen rivalry into real life."
