Dancer-singer Willa Ford will star as Anna Nicole Smith in an indie biopic about the Playboy playmate entitled "Anna Nicole."

Plans to make a biopic about have been circulated around for some time and seems it will soon take shape as the project's filmmakers have delightfully found the right one to portray the Playboy playmate.

Variety has brought in hot news that dancer-singer has been picked up to assume the part under the direction of Keoni Waxman. Production on the movie, now titled "", is said to start next week with Jack and Joseph Nasser producing and Elie Samaha executive producing.

Pic will chronicle Smith's life from age 17 until her tragic death at age 39 on February 8, 2007, depicting her success as Playboy and Guess model up to her death five months after giving birth to her daughter Dannielynn.

Smith, whose birth name was Vickie Lynn Hogan, was found unresponsive in room 607 at Hollywood's Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and pronounced DOA shortly after being rushed to the Memorial Regional Hospital. Cause of her death was later revealed to be an accidental drug overdose of the sedative chloral hydrate.
