Jessica Biel Found a Role She’d Die for, at least a Little

No that role isn't Wonder Woman.  Though rumored to play the Amazon with the lasso of truth, that role is going to another young starlet, but it's still anyone's guess who that will be.

Instead Biel is set to star in a crime thriller by United Artists based on Megan Abbott's novel, Die a Little.  While the novel is set in 1954 Los Angeles, the movie is being updated to present day.  I've never read this novel, but Biel will be taking the lead role of a schoolteacher whose life (and that of her police detective brother) is "turned upside down by a mysterious woman".

A bit more after the jump. 



Did you know Biel was voted "Sexiest Woman Alive" by Esquire magazine in 2005?  I realize this has nothing to do with this news item, but come on, can you disagree with them?
