‘The Last Showgirl’: Dave Bautista, Pamela Anderson, Jamie Lee Curtis, & More To Star In Gia Coppola’s Vegas Film

Pamela Anderson, Dave Bautista, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kiernan Shipka, Billie Lourd, Brenda Song. With those names attached, do you even care what the movie is? Neither do I, just give it to me now. Well, that film is The Last Showgirl, and it’s directed by Gia Coppola. You know what else? It’s already wrapped shooting in Las Vegas.

Deadline has info on The Last Showgirl, which stars Anderson as an aging showgirl who suddenly finds herself out of a job when her Vegas showcase abruptly shutters after thirty years. She has to figure out what to do with her life, and how to mend her relationship with her daughter.

Coppola, whose grandfather is The Godfather director Francis Ford Coppola, directed the 2013 film Palo Alto, as well as 2020’s Mainstream.

Coppola said about the film, “I’ve always wanted to make a movie in Vegas. I’m so proud of our cast and crew, especially Pamela. I can’t wait to share her daring and heartfelt performance!”

This could be a big comeback role for Anderson. The former Baywatch beauty never really made it as a big-screen star, her most prominent role being the high-profile flop Barb Wire. Her last lead role was in 2008 when she starred opposite Denise Richards in Blonde and Blonder.

Kate Gersten wrote The Last Showgirl’s screenplay. She has previously worked on such shows as The Good Place and Schmigadoon.
