Just for the record…

No. No, no, and more no. No.

Jessica Simpson is in talks to star in a remake of ‘Working Girl’.

The ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ actress is desperate to land her first starring role in a film and has her sights set on playing Tess McGill – the role which won Melanie Griffith an Oscar in the original 1988 movie.

Her spokesperson told the New York Daily News: “It is one of the scripts Jessica is considering.”

In ‘Working Girl’ Tess McGill is a fresh-faced secretary with big dreams of one day becoming the boss - and the 25-year-old blonde is convinced this is the perfect role for her to make her mark in Hollywood.

(And why the fuck do we need a remake of Working Girl, which is a great film that’s not even 20 years old, anyway?! For cripes sake, Melanie Griffith, Sigourney Weaver, and Harrison Ford could practically still make the movie! Harrumph.)
