William Levy and Jada Pinkett-Smith will star in new salsa film

William Levy proved he can steal hearts while shimmying on the dance floor and it looks like he’s ready to do so again with the announcement that he will star alongside Jada Pinkett-Smith in a new dance-themed flick.

Pinkett-Smith will both produce and star in the film titled “Salsa,” which shares the story of a woman who is at a crossroads in her life when she meets a smoldering salsa instructor, who sweeps her off her feet through Latin dance.

It’s a huge starring role for Levy, a telenovela actor who first became America’s sweetheart last year on “Dancing with the Stars.” Since then, Levy has appeared on screen in multiple commercial campaigns for Pepsi. He’ll next be seen in “Addicted” and Tyler Perry’s “Single Moms Club.”

And if the idea of a big screen Latin dance film seems like an unlikely smash success, think again. Vanessa Williams and Latin music star Cheyenne teamed up for 1998’s “Dance with Me,” which successfully introduced Cheynne to mainstream audiences and cemented Williams’ reputation as a sexy leading lady.
