Minka Kelly Is Today’s Parking Lot Catwalker! Rocks Asics!
We have some good news to report! Minka Kelly scored a new gig, so looks like all the hard work at the gym is paying off with roles in non-romantic comedy films! Good for Minka!
Her latest film, which is set for release sometime this year, is titled ‘The WOrld Made Straight’, which is based on the 2006 novel by Ron Rash. Minka plays the role of Dena, who was once a pretty young woman, but then later becomes a heavy drug user. The role definitely doesn’t sound like one of those “come onto set and look pretty” type of roles that Minka is typically accustomed to, so she better bring her A-game! Here’s more about the plot:
In 1970s Western North Carolina, a young man stumbles across a grove of marijuana, sees an opportunity to make some easy money, and steps into the jaws of a bear trap. He is discovered by the ruthless farmer who set the trap to protect his plants, and begins his struggle with the evils of his community’s present as well as those of its history. Before long, he has moved out of his parents’ home to live with a onetime schoolteacher who now lives in a trailer outside town, deals a few drugs, and studies journals from the American Civil War. Their fates become entwined as the community’s terrible past and corrupt present lead to a violent reckoning with the marijuana farmer and with a Civil War massacre that continues to divide an Appalachian community.[Source]
