Jessica Simpson, last seen on the big screen in Employee of the Month and The Dukes of Hazzard, has a new movie lined up.

The story reportedly centers around a pampered actress who joins the Marines to convince a movie producer that she's fit for an upcoming military film. When she arrives at Camp Pendleton, she realizes she's made a huge mistake but decides that she has to stick it out.

The Warner Bros. project is based on a spec script by April Blair.
