Nicole Scherzinger To Play Mary Magdalene In 'Jesus Christ Superstar' Movie?
Nicole Scherzinger is reportedly in talks to play Mary Magdalene in a new big screen adaptation of hit musical Jesus Christ Superstar.
The pop star and TV talent show judge is being lined up to play Jesus' female disciple in a re-imagining of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's rock opera, which was made into a film in 1973.
Scherzinger has been in negotiations with Webber since earlier this year after falling in love with the music, according to Britain's Sun.
A source tells the publication, "Nicole is a big fan of the songs and was desperate to be involved. She can sing and dance equally well so musicals are a natural step forward."
Singer Yvonne Elliman played the part in the original film.
