Former "Dancing With the Stars" beauty Willa Ford has lined up a new high profile gig. The blonde will take on the role of Anna Nicole Smith in a new movie being made chronicling the late model's life.

According to Variety, "Anna Nicole" the movie will cover Smith's life from her late teens through her death in February in Hollywood, Florida.

The movie will depict a host of important events in the former playmates life including her career with Playboy and her modeling stint with Guess. The magazine reports it will also include her marriage to octogenarian oil baron J. Howard Marshall. Her move to the Bahamas where her twenty-year-old son Daniel passed away last year will be dramatized in the project and the birth of Dannielynn, Anna's daughter with Larry Birkhead.

Though it is not known who will play the other prominent roles in Smith's life, comedian Jay Mohr, the former host of NBC's "Last Comic Standing," joked with Los Angeles radio station KROQ earlier this morning, he should play the part of Birkhead due to their physical resemblance.

Jack and Joseph Nasser will produce the project with Elie Samaha executive producing. Keoni Waxman, Variety reports, will direct the film.
