Miranda Lambert to Star in Comedy Film ‘Something In the Water’
By Annie Reuter
Miranda Lambert may be hitting the big screen very soon.
Deadline reports that the country singer is collaborating with music video director Trey Fanjoy and screenwriter Cindy McCreedy for the female comedy script Something In the Water. According to Deadline, the “strong female-led project is is a multi-generational ensemble piece set in the heartland.”
Lambert would take on one of the strong female roles in the film, which is about five women who challenge their men in a bass-fishing competition. The project has been compared to such previous films as Bridesmaids and Steel Magnolias.
This isn’t the first time Lambert and Fanjoy have teamed up. The latter directed Lambert’s first music video in 2004 for her single “Me and Charlie Talking,” and she has gone on to helm videos for “Kerosene,” “The House That Built Me,” “Fastest Girl In Town,” “Over You,” “Mama’s Broken Heart” and, most recently, “Somethin’ Bad” with Carrie Underwood.
So will Lambert beat her man in a bass-fishing competition? With the success of her latest No. 1 album Platinum, we’re betting on it.
