Well, how else is Brittany Murphy going to get noticed these days. She may want to make a decent film here and there. It’s just a suggestion. What’s on her cinematic plate next? The Ramen Girl
In The Ramen Girl, Murphy stars as a woman who finds herself in both Tokyo and dumpsville (population: her) when her boyfriend ditches her in the Far East. Desperate to find some sort of direction in life, she signs up to train as a ramen noodle chef under the guidance of a shouty Japanese Gordon Ramsey type played by Toshiyuki Nishida.
Shooting in Japan from a script by Becca Topol, the film will have its shots called by TV movie director Robert Allen Ackerman.
