Miley Cyrus Wings Away to New Movie, Possible Franchise

By | July 25, 2009

Miley Cyrus has signed on for a fourth season of Hannah Montana.

But the actress is clearly eyeing big screen stardom away from the Disney Channel, as she’s lined up a pair of major movie projects.

She’s currently filming The Last Song, a romantic film written specifically for Miley by beloved author Nicholas Sparks.

Now, reports indicate that Cyrus will take the lead in Wings, a fantasy adventure based on a novel by Aprilynne Pike.

 

In the movie, Cyrus will play Laurel, a 15-year-old girl that can’t exactly fit into life in a city. The reason? She’s a fairy.

Wings is actually the first book in a four-book set. As evidenced by the basic cover above – as well as the author quoted on it – the series of novels is often compared to the Twilight Saga.

Based on the excitement already generated over New Moon and the subsequent movies in that franchise, it’s scary to think about the craziness that would erupt if Cyrus stars in an equally popular string of films.

Can the world handle it?
