Carrie UnderwoodHaven't seen enough of Carrie Underwood lately? Fear not. The country music warbler and erstwhile 'American Idol' star has signed up for her big-screen debut in the indie drama 'Soul Surfer.' The film is based on the autobiography by teenage surfing champ Bethany Hamilton, who was 13 when she lost her arm in a 2003 attack by a 15-foot tiger shark in Hawaii. Despite the setback, she hit the waves again within weeks and resumed professional competitions.

In the inspirational flick, Hamilton will be played AnnaSophia Robb, who starred in 'Bridge to Terabithia' and 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,' as well as Dennis Quaid and Helen Hunt as Hamilton's parents.
