Juliette Lewis is taking a break from music and comedy to film drama!
Our fave Other Sister just landed the lead role as a prostitute in the Nights of Cabiria remake, The Days of Mary.
The original movie won the Oscar for best foreign film in 1958, and a decade later was adapted into a Bob Fosse musical starring Shirley MacLaine called Sweet Charity.
This "contemporary re-imagining" of Nights of Cabiria will be directed by Brad Michael Gilbert.
We're sure this is a WAY better opportunity, than her part in NBC's The Firm!
Congrats, gurl! Can't wait to hear the sh*t you have to say about this role!
