Willie Nelson and Larry Miller are joining the cast of the comedy, Blonde Ambition for Nu Image/Millennium Films and Sony Entertainment.
The film is a loose remake of the 1988 film Working Girl with Jessica Simpson, Luke Wilson, Rachael Leigh Cook, Andy Dick and Penelope Ann Miller in the main cast; Scott Marshall is directing.
The Hollywood Reporter says the story follows a young woman (Simpson) who becomes the unwitting pawn of two ruthless business executives in their bid to usurp and replace the head of an international conglomerate. Nelson is playing Simpson's grandfather, and Miller is the CEO.
Blonde Ambition is currently shooting in New York and will move to Shreveport, Louisiana next year; a 2007 release has been scheduled.
