It looks like Gia Allemand, the gorgeous brunette who we know from The Bachelor and Bachelor Pad, will have to put any plans of a possible romance, marriage, and babies with bad boy Wes Hayden on hold for the time being. She has just been cast to play the role of iconic Hollywood actress Ava Gardner in an upcoming film!
Filming of the movie begins January 2nd, and will be produced by Brett Ratner. The movie will be about the life of actor Gianni Russo. He is best known for his role in The Godfather as Carlo Rizzi.
Russo supposedly hand picked Gia Allemand to play Ava Gardner’s role. Ava Gardner was once married to Frank Sinatra, and the part in the film will be small. Of selecting Allemand, Russo said, “Gia looks a lot like Ava, but it’s really the passion that she had that convinced me to cast her. Forty years ago someone did this for me. They stuck their neck out.”
Gia believes that she is destined to play Ava, and felt a deep connection with her after reading her biography. This could definitely be her big break!
Russo adds, “It’s a Cinderella story, and to help a person like Gia makes me happy because that was me forty years ago.”
