No Daisy Dukes for Ashlee Simpson's big-screen role: The singer-actress is going the indie route with Undiscovered, which hits theaters on Friday. PEOPLE takes a look at Simpson's new movie, plus other events to watch for in the coming week:

SUNDAY, AUG. 21: Enough with the AARP jokes: Mick and the boys are back, as The Rolling Stones kick off their world tour with a two-night stand at Boston's Fenway Park (the second night is on Aug. 23). Despite cracks by Jay Leno (who called their trek The We're Grateful We're Not Dead Tour) and David Letterman (who said, "They're part of the Living Will-Palooza Tour"), Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ron Wood and Charlie Watts have already sold out most of their 18-month A Bigger Bang tour.

WEDNESDAY, AUG. 24: They've trekked through the wilderness, faced their demons – and hopefully learned why they're so troubled. Now the out-of-control kids of Brat Camp – including 17-year-old Lauren, who turned to drugs after her father's death, and Isaiah, 17, who's an "angry punk rocker" with substance abuse issues – will leave Camp SageWalk and head home for a new start in the season finale of the ABC reality series, which airs at 9 p.m. ET.

THURSDAY, AUG. 25: From the spontaneous dancing to the graphic descriptions of his wife's bathroom issues, Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston gave the world an intimate look inside his life on the Bravo show Being Bobby Brown. The reality series wraps up at 10 p.m. with a recap of everything you may have missed during the series.

FRIDAY, AUG. 26: Big sis Jessica has already hit the big screen in The Dukes of Hazzard and now Ashlee Simpson is following suit with the indie film Undiscovered, which follows a group of aspiring entertainers as they try to make it in Hollywood. But unlike the fun and frothy Dukes, Ashlee has a slightly grittier role as a wannabe actress.

NEW THIS WEEK:
Movies (now in theaters): Red Eye, starring Rachel McAdams and Cillian Murphy; Broken Flowers, starring Bill Murray and Sharon Stone; The 40 Year-Old Virgin, starring Steve Carell, Catherine Keener and Paul Rudd
Music (in stores Tuesday): Delbert McClinton, Cost of Living; Queer as Folk: The Fifth Season (soundtrack), Ozomatli, Live at the Fillmore; Trick Pony, R.I.D.E.
