Miley Cyrus will star in an untitled film for Disney that author Nicholas Sparks is tailoring for the Hannah Montana star.
According to Variety, Sparks is writing an untitled novel and simultaneously working on a screenplay adaptation for the film, which will be produced by Disney-based Offspring Entertainment partners Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot.
Gibgot said the project came about after Disney exec Jason Reed met with the actress, who is slowly broadening her image and transitioning to adult fare. She mentioned A Walk to Remember as an example of what she hoped for.
Sparks came back with a premise for a novel that intrigued Cyrus, her family and the producers. They are keeping the plot under wraps.
A Walk to Remember moved Mandy Moore away from a pop persona, and similarly, Cyrus won't sing but only act in the Sparks drama that touches on family and romance.
No production date has been set.
