While you won't usually see me perusing the pages of Women's Wear Daily, or even surfing its website, that bastion of ladies' fashion has a bit of news on the next step in the career of Kate Bosworth. The actress was interviewed during Paris Fashion Week and revealed that she is the most recent addition to the cast of 21, a true story set in the casinos of Las Vegas. The film is based on the book Bringing Down the House: The Inside Story of Six M.I.T. Students Who Took Vegas for Millions (you can see how 21 might fit more comfortably on a poster) and tells the story of a handful of young men who devised a formidable system for winning at blackjack. The book, published in 2002, was the first non-fiction work from novelist Ben Mezrich.

The Columbia Pictures film will be directed by Robert Luketic (as mentioned here by Martha Fischer) who previously helmed Legally Blonde and Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!, the latter of which also starred Bosworth. Kevin Spacey, who worked with Bosworth in Superman Returns will both appear in 21 and serve as one of the film's producers. The movie will also star Laurence Fishburne, Liza Lapira, Josh Gad, Jim Sturgess and Masi Oka. Production will commence next month in Boston and Las Vegas.
