'Major Movie Star' revolves around an actress, played by Jessica Simpson, a pampered star who decides to enlist in the Marines to win approval from a producer and a studio who considers her unsuitable for an upcoming military-themed pic. Upon arriving at Camp Pendleton, she realizes she's made a mistake but decides to persist so she won't let her country down. Jill Marie Jones will play a fellow recruit and close friend of Simpson's, while Vivica A. Fox plays her seargant. Shooting starts next month in Shreveport, Louisiana. Warner Bros. will release the film in 2008.
Jones will later be seen in "Redrum" with Joe Torre and Kenny Young "Universal Remote", and "Perfect Christmas" with Queen Latifah, Terrence Howard, and Gabrielle Union.
