Christina Ricci is “Born to Be a Star.”

The actress has signed on for the porn-tinged comedy that Adam Sandler co-wrote and is producing with Jack Giarraputo. Longtime Sandler associates Allen Covert and Barry Bernardi also are producing the flick, which Tom Brady is directing.

The story centers on a small-town nerd who stumbles upon a family secret: His quiet and demure parents were famous porn stars in the 1970s. This motivates him to leave Northern Iowa for Hollywood, hoping to follow in their footsteps and fulfill his destiny as the biggest adult-film star in the world.

Ricci, the female lead, is the guy’s innocent girlfriend.

Despite Sandler and Giarraputo’s involvement, the movie is not a Happy Madison production but rather by porn title-friendly entity Miles Deep Prods. The movie will act as a negative pickup for Sony, which will release it through one of its labels.

Nick Swardson is co-producing.

Principal photography starts at the end of April.

The Endeavor repped Brady co-wrote “The Animal” and co-wrote and directed “The Hot Chick,” both produced by Sandler and Giarraputo.

For Ricci, the project marks a return to her more lighthearted beginnings. The actress, repped by ICM and Management 360, has spent the past few years appearing in such dramas as “Black Snake Moan” and “Monster” but began her career in such movies as “Mermaids” and “The Addams Family.”
