Anna Nicole Driven by Ford in New Movie

4/11/2007 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Anna Nicole Smith may be in heaven, but she's also connecting with the stars, as in "Dancing With." Former contestant Willa Ford will play the sometimes lucid, sometimes not, former Playboy Playmate.
Anna Nicole Smith and Willa Ford
Ford has signed on to star in "Anna Nicole," and shooting begins next week. It's about Smith's rise from exotic dancer to reality-show-diet-spokesmodel stardom, from her late teens up until her death in February at age 39. Meanwhile, a thinly-veiled fictionalization of Smith on "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" will feature actress Kristy Swanson as an Anna-alike.

I thought Anna had the most beautiful face. This Ford woman isn't really pretty at all. I see no similarities.

Does Wiila have the "ASSETS"???

NO ONE DOES!!

NO ONE has 700ml of liquid inserted in her breast tissue!!!

Everything else can be cosmetically altered, like Smith had her body surgically altered.

NO WAY that girl (Willa Ford) doesn't look nothing like ANS. I think the one who can pull it off is Alicia Siverstone. I swear they look alike, they share very simalar facial features and Alicia S. is kind of out there spacy like the way Anna used to be before she got retarded from drugs. The only thing that Alicia needs is some boobs and platnum blond locks and they would look like twins.

Here a pic of Alicia S:

Quite frankly, who gives a damn!!! What is there to play? A selfish, prescription-drug-addicted mess of a person? A character who was a master manipulator who used everyone in her life!!!! Give it up Hollywood. No one is interested.

The only interest the public has is:

1) Get Dannielynn with her rightful family as soon as possible.

2) Find out what the hell really did happen to Daniel Wayne Smith.

Then the whole sordid affair can go away for good. There's more important things in the world than rehashing the lifestory of a person famous for absolutely nothing other than making a complete fool of herself.

Anyone watch All My Children? I think the character Rex Balsom should play Larry Birkhead :-)

Kristy Swanson looks more like ANS than Willa.
Who will portray Virgie? Sally Struthers or Roseanne maybe.
