Demi Moore's Back!
Her first public appearance post-treatment
It looks like Demi Moore is ready to get back to business.

Deadline is reporting that the 49-year-old actress, who checked into a treatment facility earlier this year for undisclosed reasons, has signed on to star in the film Very Good Girls.

So, what’s Demi’s new project all about?

Very Good Girls is about two best friends, played by breakout star Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Fanning, who are determined to lose their virginity, but end up falling for the same guy, which tests their friendship. Moore will play Olsen’s mother.

This is Demi’s first acting gig since she checked into a treatment facility earlier this year. While Moore never explicitly stated why she was there, there was speculation that it had to do with an eating disorder and anxiety issues, most likely brought on by her split from Ashton Kutcher, 33, late last year.

Demi was supposed to star as woman rights activist Gloria Steinem in the film Lovelace, about adult film star Linda Lovelace who is played by Amanda Seyfried, but backed out due to her treatment. She was then replaced by Sarah Jessica Parker.
