Miley Cyrus finds 'Wings' beyond 'Hannah Montana'
Walt Disney Studios likes being in the Miley Cyrus business. "Hannah Montana: The Movie" has made approximately $80 million in the U.S., a more than satisfactory result for the family friendly studio. Cyrus is currently shooting "The Last Song," a Nicolas Sparks vehicle written just for the tween superstar. Now, Variety reports Cyrus is set to star in an adaptation of the best selling young adult novel "Wings."
Based on the book by Aprilynne Pike, Cyrus would play Laurel, a 15-year-old whose suspicion that she's different from the other kids isn't just because she's making the awkward transition from being home-schooled to entering a big high school. No, Laurel sprouts a pair of wings and learns she's really a fairy. The novel was published in May and hopes are sales will be strong enough to justify another three installments.
No screenwriter or director is attached, but Wick Godfrey, one of the producers of the "Twilight" franchise, is on board to shepherd the project.
After wraping "Last Song," Cyrus will segue to a 45-date North American tour that will begin Sept. 14 in Portland, Or.
