Steve Antin, brother of stylist Jonathan Antin and Pussycat Dolls empress Robin Antin, will direct the movie. He also wrote the script, which received a revision from Susannah Grant, who wrote the "Erin Brockovich" screenplay.
Cher will play Tess, a burlesque club owner.
"She brings a soulfulness and gravitas to this character that will ground the story," Screen Gems President Clint Culpepper told Variety. "The only person who was more excited than I am is Christina."
Christina will play a small-town girl who comes into her own in the club Cher's character runs.
Both are expected to sing in the production, which begins shooting in November.
