"The Last Song" is gearing up fast. Previously announced as an untitled movie which is developed to be Miley Cyrus' starring vehicle, the drama film has got its production schedule with Walt Disney Pictures listing the month of June as the time the feature adaptation project begins its principal photography.
Aside from the planned shooting schedule, the mouse house have also picked up first time feature film director Julie Anne Robinson to helm the project. A BAFTA Award-winning director for her direction in the pilot of BBC series "Viva Blackpool", Robinson has helmed episodes of U.S. TV series, like "Big Love", "Weeds" and "Grey's Anatomy".
"The Last Song" is a Nicholas Sparks-scripted adaptation of his upcoming novel. It will be produced by Disney-based Offspring Entertainment partners Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot with Tish Cyrus serving as executive producer. In the movie, "Hannah Montana" star Miley Cyrus will be seen portraying a rebellious teenager sent to spend the summer with her estranged father. Whereas the movie is expected to come out in 2010, Sparks' novel itself will be published by Grand Central this fall.
