While he walked away empty handed at the Oscars on Sunday night, the nomination certainly put director Rachid Bouchareb on the map and, for those who have been following his career, recognition from the Academy seemed pretty much inevitable. His last few films have tackled some heavy topics including WWII ("Indigènes"), terror attacks ("London River") and the Algerian revolution (the Oscar-nominated "Outside the Law"). But for this next effort, Bouchareb is taking a decidedly lighter path.

While he walked away empty handed at the Oscars on Sunday night, the nomination certainly put director Rachid Bouchareb on the map and, for those who have been following his career, recognition from the Academy seemed pretty much inevitable. His last few films have tackled some heavy topics including WWII ("Indigènes"), terror attacks ("London River") and the Algerian revolution (the Oscar-nominated "Outside the Law"). But for this next effort, Bouchareb is taking a decidedly lighter path.

Deadline reports that Sienna Miller has joined "Just Like A Woman," a movie that sounds like it has shades of "Shall We Dance" and follows a housewife and her belly dancing instructor who head to Las Vegas to enter a competition. Well, we give them points for a unique premise.

Golshifteh Farahani and Roschdy Zem will co-star in the film that is gearing up to start shooting in New Mexico on June 13th. Sounds like a very Hollywood turn for Bouchareb, but hopefully he can bring something special to the otherwise fairly routine sounding plot. And as for Miller, she's a good actress continually crippled by horrible film choices, so hopefully, this project marks the start of a turnaround for her as well.
