Miley Cyrus says she'd 'love' to do a fourth season of 'Hannah Montana'
Tween idol also planning to star in Nicolas Sparks movie this summer
Speaking at a press conference today to promote "Hannah Montana: The Movie," Miley Cyrus confirmed she's considering a fourth season of the popular Disney Channel TV series.
Cyrus is currently in production on the third season of the series, but says, "we all would wish to do a season four and I would love to do that if the time is right and that's what everyone agrees on. So, I'm not sure I want to do another film, but I'd like to do another season. I think that is what we would all agree on."
This is somewhat surprising news after previous reports said she wasn't thrilled with a third season committment.
She commented further on why she's less keen on moving forward with a sequel to a movie that is expected to open to similar numbers as the "Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds" concert flick which grossed $70 million last year.
" I feel like this is a TV show and we got lucky with having the material to make one movie. To do another one, I think it takes away the reality of it all and that was the point of it," Cyrus says. "People that are in normal high schools look at this and see a blond wig and stuff and say, 'Oh, that's not real' which is completely true. You're not going to be able to live that life and I can't live that life forever and it's a secret that I feel was very clever how we revealed [it in the movie], but it didn't make it [impossible for us] to come back to the show."
The soundtrack for "Hannah Montana: The Movie," which features new tracks by Cyrus, her father Billy Ray and superstar Taylor Swift, was released last Tuesday. Cyrus will perform the first single, "The Climb," during the Academy of Country Music Awards show this Sunday, April 4 at 8 PM on CBS. The 16-year-old says she's considering a tour later in the year, but will spend the summer shooting a still untitled Disney movie tailor written for her by "The Notebook" author Nicolas Sparks.
"You never really hear the movie is written before the book. It's kind of a weird way to do that, but he actually wrote the movie before he wrote the book and he wrote it for me in mind," Cyrus says. "I have been lucky for me to play parts that relate to me and this doesn't at all, because I have my issues but not as bad as this chick. So, I'm happy to play someone that is kind of out there and not someone that I am like so I can actually see if I'm a good actress or not or if I'm just good at playing myself."
"Hannah Montana: The Movie" opens nationwide on April 10. Look for live coverage of the ACM's from HitFix's Melinda Newman this Sunday, April 4 beginning at 8 PM EST/5 PM PST.
