The flick, which starts filming next week in Atlanta, is adapted from Perry's play by the same name and depicts a newlywed marriage counselor, Judith (played by actress Jurnee Smollett), who's great at her job but struggles in her own marriage.

The 31-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star will play the role of Ava, Judith's co-worker, who helps her friend gain new confidence with a big city makeover among other things.

Although this is Kardashian's second big-screen gig, (she was also in Disaster Movie and Deep in the Valley), The Marriage Counselor is probably the most fitting, since she's a newlywed herself. (She tied the knot with NBA star Kris Humphries August 20).
