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.
