Sienna Miller will play a belly dancing housewife in comedy 'Just Like a Woman'.

The 29-year-old actress - who is about to start a stint in London's West End in 'Flare Path' - agreed to work on the project before she even read the script as she was so keen to work with director Rachid Bouchareb.

She told Deadline.com: "Rachid is one of the most exciting directors working today. He's one of those people who understand the medium of film in a way that's not manipulative but that's honest and raw. As a director he's capable of anything.

"He's one of those people who understand the medium of film in a way that's not manipulative but that's honest and raw."

The movie tells the tale of a woman (Sienna) who runs away to Las Vegas with her belly dancing teacher to enter a competition.

'Body of Lies' star Golshifteh Farahani and Roschdy Zem will also star in the project.

Sienna - who recently broke up with actor Jude Law for the second time - last appeared on the big screen in 2009's 'G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra'.
