Hollywood beauty Sarah Michelle Gellar is shunning her wholesome image to play a porn star in Richard Kelly's new movie SOUTHLAND TALES.

The Buffy The Vampire Slayer actress will star alongside wrestler-turned actor DWAYNE 'THE ROCK' JOHNSON in the film, which is set in Los Angeles in 2008.

The storyline weaves together the lives of an action star stricken with amnesia, an adult film star developing her own reality television show and a policeman who holds the key to a vast conspiracy - all taking place during a three-day heat-wave and culminating in a huge Fourth of July celebration.

Kelly - acclaimed director of cult film DONNIE DARKO - is also writing a prequel to the movie, which will be published as six separate 100-page graphic novels in the run-up to the film's release next year (06).
