Deadline.Com — Country music star Miranda Lambert is collaborating on the female comedy script Something In The Water penned by celebrated country music video director Trey Fanjoy and screenwriter Cindy McCreery. The strong female-led project is a multi-generational ensemble piece set in the heartland; Lambert would take on one of the roles in the romp about five women challenging their men in a bass fishing competition. The project, which Fanjoy also hopes to direct, is said be in the vein of Bridesmaids meets Steel Magnolias.
Lambert and Fanjoy have long collaborated. In fact, for about a decade. Fanjoy directed Lambert’s first music video for the singer’s first single and has, subsequently, helmed the country artist’s videos on her game-changing hits — “Kerosene,” “The House That Built Me,” “Fastest Girl In Town,” “Over You,” “Mama’s Broken Heart” and the singer’s most recent hit video “Somethin’ Bad” with Carrie Underwood (which has been viewed over 10 million times since bowing last month and has pulled record-breaking view numbers for Viacom and its County Music Television). Together, Lambert and Fanjoy have racked up numerous awards, most recently this past June when Lambert won Female Video of the Year for the song “Automatic,” directed (once again) by Fanjoy.
