Miley Cyrus won't be heard sounding a high-pitched voiceover in "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel". Responding to the flying speculation that she will be providing voice to Brittany the Chipette in the sequel of 2007 comedy "Alvin and the Chipmunks", the 16-year-old claimed that she is looking for an edgier role than the CGI cartoons.
"I want to get some edgy roles, not 'Alvin and the Chipmunks'," the star of Disney TV series "Hannah Montana" explained to MTV, before revealing that she also won't star in the re-imagining of '80s classic "Adventures in Babysitting". She then stressed, "I'm definitely going for more edgy roles right now."
Denying the casting report, the starlet, who will be seen in theaters when feature comedy "Hannah Montana: The Movie" hits U.S. theaters on April 10, furthermore pointed out that she herself hasn't heard about the rumor. "Everyone's said that today," so she claimed. "No, I hadn't even heard that rumor yet."
A sequel to "Alvin and the Chipmunks", "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel" will see the harmony singing chipmunks going to school and trouble coming in the form of their female counterparts, the Chipettes. The Chipettes consist of Brittany, Jeanette and Eleanor Miller. Targeted for U.S. release on December 25, the movie is expected to hear Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler and Jesse McCartney once again as the voice of Alvin, Simon and Theodore.
