Cher Teaming With…Johnny Knoxville For New Comedy?

We actually sort of hope this still happens!

Save her appearance in the upcoming Burlesque, Cher hasn't been into many films in the past few years, but it was rumored in 2009 that the legend had set her sights on a comedy with none other than Jackass' Johnny Knoxville…and it still could be happening!

The flick, called The Drop Out, was reported in January of 2009 to feature Knoxville as a slacker who gets kicked out of his parents house, and moves in with a cougar - played by Cher!

Although the project, to be directed by Ricky Blitt, never seemed to get off the ground, Cher mentioned it recently during Burlesque's promotional tour, and said:

"It’s very dumb, very fourteen-year-old boy humor. I love it."

Present-tense, hmm?

Does this mean the project is still a possibility?!

We certainly hope so! We'd love to see Cher in more movies!

And Kathy Bates' appearance in The Water Boy proves that A-list talent can sometimes elevate lo-brow comedy, so we say go for it, bb!

What do U think?? Do U want to see more Cher on-screen??

    Not too big on Cher but johnny is the man!~ Anyone who breaks his d*ck litterally to bring entertainment is OK in my book! I met him at the Mercer once, nice dude. He was reading the New York Times kinda shocked me…lol

    Cher - Parade Magazine and recent tv interviews - Cher keep acting! Do the Johnny Knoxville film! And, just a suggestion: you are beloved and do NOT need the plastic surgery! We'd prefer you remain the independent woman you've always been showing exactly who you are at any time. You became "Cher" maybe from suggestions from Sonny, but actually through your own will….don't give in to handlers. Date whomever you want on your own terms - it's hard to believe you've got to settle for anything. Revive 70s-type tv shows - we'd love them! (get us out of this Jersey Shore/Housewives phase and back to cutting-edge entertainment!) Kudos still on Moonstruck and Silkwood. Looking forward to Burlesque. :) The 70s ruled.
