In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Miley Cyrus is now attached to star in an adaptation of Lisa McMann's young-adult paranormal thriller novel Wake. The film will be made by Paramount Pictures and MTV Films

Christopher Landon (Disturbia) is going to adapt the book for the screen.

Wake is the first of three novels that were written by McMann. They follow a 17-year-old girl named Janie. She has "the unwanted ability to become sucked into people's dreams. Not surprisingly, she sees things she would rather not see. But when she gets pulled into a terrible nightmare, Janie dangerously goes from mere witness to participant."

The sequels to Wake are "Fade" and "Gone". They detail her investigations with her boyfriend Cabel. This leads them into the odd activities of teachers at their school as well as the fate that lies in front of her. Paramount and MTV Films have picked up the rights to the entire series.
