"Hannah Montana" star Miley Cyrus will be teaming up once again with Disney. According to Variety, the 15-year-old starlet has been tapped by the mouse house to topline in an untitled film, "Untitled Nicholas Sparks/Disney Project", which will be developed by bestselling author Nicholas Spark to be her starring-vehicle.

Reportedly, this movie project which plot is kept under wraps is aimed to aid Miley in her transition to an older role like what "A Walk to Remember" has done to pop singer-turned-actress Mandy Moore in 2002. It will be produced by Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot from Disney-based Offspring Entertainment, while Miley's mother Tish Cyrus will serve as the executive producer.

Commenting on Miley's involvement in the project, the author of "The Notebook" revealed that his past work has helped to intrigue her and her family stating that they "were very familiar with the work I've done in the past. That played a role in this project coming together."

On Miley's other big screen project, she has completed the shooting of her upcoming small screen adaptation "Hannah Montana: The Movie" since July 2008. Starring as the titular character in the film, Miley is supported by Billy Ray Cyrus, Jason Earles, Emily Osment, Mitchel Musso, Vanessa Williams and many more.

The Disney flick resolves around Miley Steward, an ordinary teenager living a double life as teenage singing sensation Hannah Montana. In it, it will be told that Stewart deals with her overwhelming success as Hannah and tries to find once again what is really important in life by going back to her hometown of Crowley Corners, Tennessee. The movie will hit the theaters on May 5, 2009.
