Sexy pop sensation BILLIE PIPER is to make her movie debut in a £5million ($7.5m) British film alongside screen legend JOHN HURT. Billie, 18, currently dating VIRGIN RADIO tycoon CHRIS EVANS, is to play the challenging role of a teenage chart-topper in the murder mystery TABLOID, which starts filming next week (beg15JA01).
A film insider says, "Hopefully Billie will feel at home - GRADUATE stage star MATTHEW RHYS is playing a Chris Evans-style megalomaniac chat show host!" (TM/WNTSU/PDD)
