MTV spoke to “Newlyweds” star Jessica Simpson who confirmed what you first heard here last September, that she’s up for a role in Mort, the Dead Teenager. Here’s a few clips from the article…
Simpson’s also keeping her fingers crossed for a long-hinted-about Marvel Comics movie, the details of which she’d been keeping quiet about. Now, however, she’s confirmed that she shot a screen test for “Mort the Dead Teenager,” based on an adaptation of an obscure, out-of-print title that follows the ghost of a teen who is commanded by Death to haunt the friends he had during his life, including the girl of his dreams (the role the singer wants).
“It’s an adorable script,” Simpson said. “I would love to do it. It’s the next ‘Back to the Future,’ it’s that cool. I think it’ll have a cult-type following. It’s a clever, clever script, and the way it could be shot would be really cool.”
