Mya To Take Role In 'Chicago' Movie

Mya stays slumming when picking out her girlfriends, at least on screen. After spending time with Lil’ Kim, Pink and Christina Aguilera, playing ladies of the evening in the video for “Lady Marmalade,” she’s now set to hang with a murderer.

The singer is currently in Toronto rehearsing with leading ladies Catherine Zeta-Jones and Renee Zellweger for her role in the big-screen adaptation of the Tony Award-winning musical “Chicago.”

Filming for the Miramax project starts in January, with Mya playing a vixen named Mona. The original version of “Chicago” centers around two 1920s entertainers who get involved in homicide.

Besides her movie role, 2002 will also see the release of Mya’s third album, according to Interscope Records. The label is not releasing any more information on the project.

This is not the first time Mya will grace the silver screen – in 1999, she had a small role in the film “In Too Deep,” which starred Omar Epps and LL Cool J.
