Will "Dirrty" girl Christina Aguilera be bumping and grinding on a big screen near you soon?

E! Online reports that Aguilera is interested in starring in the upcoming film Burlesque, about a modern-day burlesque dancer. The film, which was written and will be directed by Steve Antin—whose sister, Robin Antin, launched the hugely successful burlesque troupe Pussycat Dolls—is tentatively slated to begin shooting on January 2010.

Though a rep for Screen Gems, which is producing the film, says that it's "too preliminary to comment on" casting, a source says that Dancing With the Stars hoofer Julianne Hough is in talks to costar as a pregnant showgirl.

Have your say in the comments section: Would you pay to watch Christina Aguilera shake her tassles in a movie theater?

    I have been waiting for the official word on this since last month. Finally more to follow since SNL. Wishing Christina all the best.
