The first photos from the set of contemporary musical “Burlesque” have arrived. Click below to enlarge these new images of Christina Aguilera, Cam Gigandet and Cher.
“Burlesque” will revolve around Ali (Christina Aguilera), a small-town girl who tries to pursue her dreams in Los Angeles. After stumbling upon The Burlesque Lounge, a majestic but ailing theater, she lands a job as a cocktail waitress from Tess (Cher), the club’s proprietor and headliner. Enraptured by Burlesque’s outrageous costumes and bold choreography, the young ingenue vows to perform there one day.
Ali soon befriends a featured dancer, finds an enemy in a troubled, jealous performer and garners the affection of bartender and fellow musician Jack (Cam Gigandet). With the help of a sharp-witted stage manager and gender-bending host, she makes her way from the bar to the stage and restores The Burlesque Lounge to its former glory.
The film is directed by Steve Antin. Additional cast include Eric Dane, Kristen Bell, Julianne Hough and Stanley Tucci.
“Burlesque” will land in cinemas on November 24, 2010.
