Miley Cyrus to Get 'Wings' via 'Twilight'


Miley Cyrus


Disney is developing an adaptation to Aprilynee Pike's novel as a star vehicle for the 'Hannah Montana' star with two of 'Twilight' producers Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey involved.

Miley Cyrus is indeed breaking out of her "Hannah Montana" image by getting another starring project on her sleeves. According to Variety, Disney has snagged screen rights to young adult novel "Wings" and will develop it as a star vehicle for the 16-year-old with Temple Hill partners Marty Bowen and Wick Godfrey, who produce "Twilight", serving as producers.

The teen actress who recently won two 2009 MTV Movie Awards for her "Hannah Montana: The Movie" is expected to take on the role of 15-year-old Laurel who discovers that she is a fairy after sprouting a pair of wings. "Wings" will be her latest collaboration with the mouse house beyond the "Hannah Montana" franchise.

An adaptation to Aprilynee Pike's bestselling novel, "Wings" follows Laurel who grows up sheltered and home-schooled in a small town. When Laurel is forced to adjust to a big high school, her suspicions that she's not like everyone else are soon confirmed as she finds out she's a fairy. The project will have Miley's mother, Tish Cyrus, taking the executive producer role.

Miley Cyrus herself is currently filming "The Last Song". For the Julie Anne Robinson-directed adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' novel, she will be seen portraying a rebellious teenager sent to spend the summer with her estranged father. Earlier, she has been spotted sharing passionate kiss with her on-screen love interest Liam Hemsworth at a beach for the film's scenes.

    After all the things I heard Miley did... I can never imagine her as a protaganist, these divas jeez no offense Miley lovers I just don't think shes cut out for this role, she doesn't have the additude and seriously??? Shes been lap dancing in public a horrible influence and you might say that its normal for teens 16+ to be doing these things but when your a "role model" wouldn't you want kids to look up to you? I was her fan before she lost her self control and to tell you the truth she was brilliant before the drama.

    I was looking at a website and said that Wings will be just as popular as the Twilight saga! That is so not true nothing is better than Twilight. If Miley does play Laurel that will bost her popularity. We can't let this happen! Somebody do something! And quick!

    I'm sorry guys but I have to admitt that miley isn't the best actress for the part. I think that her playing Laurel is going to ruin the movie. I can't take miley or her acting seriously. sorry miley

    This book sucks, sorry, but the only way someone can consider this book is good is if the person is a 7 year old girl. On the other hand, is people stupid? just because you like the way Miley looks, that doesn't mean she's a good actress. And the book described Laurel in someway, why not respect at least that? Dakota o Evanna, both are so much beautiful than Miley and both can act so much better.

    i love this book and when i found out tht miley cyrus was going to play laurel, i fllipped. personaly i ddont think tht she is a good actress. i mean come on she has a country accent, so not angelic. shes tan, not pale, nd i cant see her playing a fairy. thts just my opinion. plzzzz disney, chose a different person to play laurel!I agree tht dakota fanning would do a MUCH better job.

    Evanna would be great, she's looks and sounds like a angel. Is nice that Miley is letting go her Hannah Montana image and make stuff of her own.

    If you read the book you know what im talking about. Laurel - a small and petite 15-year old, beautiful, angelic-like, very light blonde hair, light green eyes, almost translucent pale skin. Miley - Brown haired, normal body shape, tanned (kinda), and her eyes... who the heck knows what color those are! + Miley has that very man-like country accent. Think thats a nice voice for a angelic faerie? think again.

    i like miley cyris and all. But shes not fit for the part. I read over laurels discription over and over. But i dont picture miley. I was hoping they made a movie after iv finised the book but now i regret it. This makes me truley sad. This takes the image i had of her fly out the window. Im not much of a reader. I never read accually. I never got hooked on twilight, and all my friends have. Iv found a book i truly love and im willing to read it a million tims over. Iv finally found something i love and its gonna be ruined. I found something to brag about but now its shatterd. I just hope they change their mind. And i hope they know it dosnt take some famous teenager to make a good movie.

    Nothing against Dakota Fanning, but say that she is prettier than Miley ... this is crazy! Dakota is very beautiful, but Miley is more! People describe the characteristics of Laurel...Laurel can not have hair darker? and if Disney put a black girl to interpret Laurel, what's wrong? MILEY DIVA!

    this is just SO WRONG. laurel is really petite and shes supposed to actually look sorta like a fairy. miley is not petite enough to play her and laurel is a shy, sweet character. miley is exactly the opposite. i love this book but theyre just ruining it.

    EWWW I HATE MILEY CYRUS. The book is amazing, and if she plays LAUREL? Far out. That's the dumbest thing Disney's done to date-- apart from creating all those other Disney movies. LIKE SERIIOUSLY THE CAST DIRECTOR SHOULD BE SACKED. How stupid could Disney get? Beyond how crap they already are! Don't tell me this book is going to end up like all that other Disney crap. Miley Cyrus is going to ruin it for me-- not to mention that the DIRECTOR SHOULD LISTEN TO "WINGS" FANS ON THE INTERNET.

    I personally think Miley is very beautiful but she is a comedian not a serious actor. If she plays Wings it will ruin it she will turn it into a comedy. I love comedies but I also love these kind of things where it is serious acting. She ruined the Last Song. Which was actually especially written for Miley. Nicholas Sparks is even having her play a grown woman in Dear John. If she can make these movies into something great i will never doubt her again. It is hard playing something that was already a book though look at Kristen and Robert they ruined twilight.

    everyone always has a probelm with casting for novel adapts because everyone pictures the characters differently. anyways miley cyrus is an okay actress in comedy lets see if she can do some serious acting this is her chance to shine. i remember how angry everyone was with robert pattinson for twilight he recieved hate mail even now everyone can't picture another edward for twilight. the same will most likely happen for miley cyrus. anyways its a good book.

    Miley is far from ugly. Are we living in a world were everyone looks like Angelina Jolie? Anyways this book is good and Miley seems well fitted. Hopefully a good director will be involved.

    Read the book. Its pretty good. I can't judge Miley's acting until The Last Song comes out but I have no problem with her playing Laurel. Hopefully she will do fine and they can pull of this magical world well. PLEAS GOD don't turn this into a franchise I will be happy with 1 movie! Don't ruin it!

    The book is terrible! The only reason that it's gotten this far is that the author is friends with Stephenie Meyer! Publishers and now Hollywood are hoping to ride Meyer's coattails with this
