Leighton Meester to Star in Country Musical Film

Leighton Meester has proven to the world that she can sing just as well as acting, and has landed herself a role opposite Gwyneth Paltrow!

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the two women join Tim McGraw in the cast of Love Don’t Let Me Down, which is being co-produced by Tobey Maguire.

The story follows Leighton playing a beauty queen-turned singer as she finds herself involved in a love triangle as she accompanies an up-and-coming musician, played by Garrett Hedlund, on tour.

Leighton is becoming quite the big screen actress—she’s got two other movies coming out in 2010—The Roomate and Date Night. And we’re sure this film will help her showcase her voice as she’s preparing to release her album early next year.
