Dita Von Teese will be making her big movie debut in a new film. The sexy burlesque dancer has inked a deal to play a notorious double agent in a biopic of the life of Mata Hari, real name Margaretha Geertruida Zelle.
Margaretha was executed during WWI for reportedly giving information to the Germans.
Von Teese will play Hari who was an exotic Dutch dancer and was employed as a spy for the French.
“Dita has done a little acting before and I think she can handle it," said the film's director Martha Fiennes.
“In fact, I approached her myself. She is perfect for the part. I have written the script but it will probably need some developing, so I don't expect filming to start for another eight to ten months. “
For some strange reason I see Dita being PERFECT for this role. She definitely does have old Hollywood glam written all over her face!
