Julianne Hough in the Right Shape to Play Fitness Queen Betty Weider

Julianne Hough has been cast as real-life model-turned-fitness guru Betty Weider in a new biopic.

Weider and her husband Joe co-founded Shape magazine, which has featured the Rock of Ages star as a cover model four times.

She'll be joined by Tyler Hoechlin, Aneurin Barnard, and Kevin Durand for the George Gallo movie, which will start shooting next month, according to Deadline.

The film will be Hough's first since she became Mrs. Brooks Laich in early July. She wed the ice hockey star on Lake Coeur d'Alene in Idaho.
