The Ironic lady herself, Alanis Morissette has signed on to co-star with Jonathan Scarfe (The Poet), Shea Whigham (All the Real Girls), Katheryn Winnick (Failure to Launch), and Hanna Hall (Halloween). Alanis is playing Sylvia, "a woman who shows up in the vision of a record label executive named Nick (Scarfe) as a glamorous singer." But there's a twist -- she's actually "an ordinary woman in unexpected remission from lymphoma who, after appearing in Nick's visions, gets a job as his secretary." Through shared visions and spirituality, they become soul mates. Basically, the typical, funky Alanis fare. I mean, she has been the top holy dog, after all. Morissette says: "I am a big fan of Philip K. Dick's poetic and expansively imaginative books. I feel blessed to portray Sylvia, and to be part of this story being told in film."
It'll definitely be an interesting addition to her repertoire. She got famous getting slimed on You Can't Do That on Television, then uber-famous for her music (the second round, not the super pop stuff), from there, Kevin Smith made her God, she smooched Sarah Jessica Parker on Sex and the City, did a few more movie and TV stints, and most recently, appears in Jeff Goldblum's mockumentary, Pittsburgh. Maybe one of these days she'll combine the music and spirituality and play some sort of traveling Christian musician. But for now, she's just going to have visions.
