NBC may have canned The Playboy Club after just three episodes, but that hasn’t stopped its star, out actress Amber Heard from hurtling toward becoming Hollywood’s new “it” girl as Heard has just been cast in the upcoming “revenge” film Motor City, according to Deadline.

The sultry blond will star opposite Dominic Cooper (Mamma Mia, The Duchess) in the film that tells the story of a man whose released from prison and one by one picks off the people who framed him. Gotta love a film that takes its cues from the season’s hottest soapy one-hour drama – Revenge!

Prior to 2008’s Pineapple Express Heard was barely a blip on the IMDB page but with subsequent roles in 2009’s Zombieland and more recently Drive Angry and The Rum Diary, she’s quickly becoming the go-to gal.
