LeAnn Rimes is keeping her acting career going, and she's got a Hollywood icon playing opposite her this time.

Burt Reynolds will co-star with her in a CMT original movie called Reel Life, where the two will play a father and daughter.

The basics: Burt's character has a heart attack, and LeAnn's character rushes back to take care of him.

But the dad is a cranky guy who doesn't want to eat healthy or work out—all he wants to do is fish.

Oh, and LeAnn's character falls in love with the new guy in town.

Reel Life debuts on CMT Nov. 13.
