Carrie Underwood may be a southern belle, but she’s headed to the beach! She has just landed her first movie role! According to Variety, she’ll be starring in the indie film Soul Surfer, alongside Dennis Quaid and Helen Hunt.
The movie is based on the true story of teen surfing champ and shark attack survivor Bethany Hamilton. The surf icon defied all odds to compete and win professional championships after losing her arm in a shark attack at age 13.
Quaid and Hunt play Hamilton's parents, and Underwood has taken on the role of a church youth leader. We’re hoping this means Carrie can show off her pipes in the film! Sounds like a great movie!
