Julianne Hough in Talks to Be a ‘Gladiator’
Julianne Hough is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood. She is now in advanced negotiations to be one of the primary voices for Italy’s Rainbow Studios’ big-budget 3D animated film, ‘Not Born to Be Gladiators,’ according to Variety.
If all goes well, the former ‘Dancing With the Stars‘ two-time champ and country singer will voice the love interest of “goofy gladiator” Timo. The rest of the U.S. voice cast, which is reported to include some of the biggest names in Hollywood, is still being decided.
The beauty, featured once again on Maxim’s Hot 100 list, co-starred with Cher and Christina Aguilera in last year’s ‘Burlesque,’ and later this year, she will star as ‘Ariel’ in the remake of the 1980′s classic, ‘Footloose,’ which is set to hit theaters nationwide October 14. As if she didn’t have enough on her plate, she is also starting pre-production on the film version of the Broadway hit musical, ‘Rock of Ages,’ along with Tom Cruise, Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin, on Thursday (May 19).
In addition to her film career kicking into high gear, Julianne is also working on her second country album, scheduled for release next year.
