Jessica Alba Finds Her Inner Hooker, Casey Affleck Finds ‘The Killer Inside’

Jessica Alba Finds Her Inner Hooker

This won’t be the first time that Jessica Alba has played a street-wise sex worker — we all remember her role as Nancy, the stripper with a heart in Sin City. And in The Killer Inside Me, which is based on a popular novel by noir writer Jim Thompson, Alba will play a prostitute in the world of a West Texas Sheriff, played by Casey Affleck, who finds himself transforming from boring small town cop to ruthless, sociopathic murderer.

The film will be helmed by Brit Michael Winterbottom, who most recently directed Angelina Jolie in A Mighty Heart. Winterbottom was also the man behind the camera on Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story starring Steve Coogan.

“The Killer Inside Me” was also adapted to film in 1976 that starred Stacy Keach as the small town cop turned killer.

While little else is known about the project, there is one thing that is certain — we will be curiously awaiting the script and target rating. Why? Because we all want to know if motherhood has changed Jessica Alba’s stance on on-screen nudity, thats why. Yes, that is a twisted and perverse way to look at things, but you know that the minute you saw ‘Jessica Alba’ and ‘prostitute’ in the same sentence you thought the exact same thing. The likelihood of Ms. Alba showing skin is still very slim, but a boy (or in this case a community of males) can’t help but dream, can we?
