|All Saint Shaznay Scores Movie Debut
- Former girl group singer to star in football flick
SHAZNAY LEWIS, former All Saints singer, has kick-started a career in the film industry by making her big screen debut in a British movie about a female football team.
Lewis is to play the captain of an amateur football club in the film - which takes its title from a certain Manchester United football player - Bend It Like Beckham. The film's producers are also hoping to rope in Beckham himself for a cameo role.
Bend It Like Beckham, which also stars Juliet Stevenson, Lock Stock And Two Smoking Barrels' Frank Harper and Kulvinder Ghir from TV sitcom Goodness Gracious Me, follows two girls who have their hearts set on soccer careers despite their parents' wishes.
Directed by Gurinder Chadha, Bend It Like Beckham is currently shooting at Shepperton Studios and is set for release next year.
