I didn't think Brittany Murphy would actually get a real job in acting again. When you get fired off a cartoon you know that you have really ticked people off in the industry. This does pose other problems as well. Brittany managed to snag a role in a popcorn flick and didn't have to resort to acting in indies or anything like that. Now, Dina Lohan's daughter is going to think she can get the same kind of movie and so won't ever get her life together. The unfortunate movie which will have Brittany Murphy's services is The Expendables which stars Sylvester Stallone who also wrote the screenplay and is directing it. Also in the movie are Jet Li, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren and Mickey Rourke. Brittany plays the girlfriend of Mickey Rourke and also has to sing.
I think the reason Brittany wanted this role so much is because it is being filmed in South America. She probably thinks she can get what she needs cheaper there and cut out the middleman.
