Variety reports that Screen Gems has tapped Stanley Tucci to star with Cher and Christina Aguilera in Steven Antin's Burlesque.

Antin penned the script, which was later revised by Susannah Grant.

Aguilera will be a small-town girl with a big voice who finds success in a neo-burlesque club. Tucci is going to be the manager of the Sunset Boulevard club and the best pal of Tess (Cher). She is a former dancer who tries to help the young girl.

This Cher's first starring role in over a decade.

The film will start shooting November 9 and should be released around Thanksgiving 2010.
