The singer/actress is reportedly circling the movie adaptation of the young-adult novel, which sees a young girl having an unwanted ability to become sucked into people's dreams.
After closely related to Disney since early of her career, Miley Cyrus is ready to explore her darker side by playing in a paranormal thriller. The Hollywood Reporter claims the 17-year-old star is attached to star in "Wake", which is based on Lisa McMann's young-adult novel.
Paramount Pictures and MTV Films have picked up the rights to the property, while Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Lindsay Williams will team up with Jodi Zuckerman, Tish Cyrus, Steven Schneider as well as Jason Blum to produce it. "Disturbia" co-writer Christopher Landon is hired to provide the script.
"Wake" is the first of three novels written by McMann about a 17-year-old girl named Janie who is cursed with the ability to become sucked into people's dreams. She sees enough fantasy booty to last her a lifetime, but still unable to tell anybody about what she does. She then gets pulled into a terrible nightmare, which puts her as a participant instead of just a witness.
Miley Cyrus previously played in "Hannah Montana: The Movie" which serves as a big screen adaptation of her hit TV series "Hannah Montana". She later starred in 2009 "The Last Song" in which she shared screen with Liam Hemsworth and made a cameo appearance in "Sex and the City 2" which has been released in the U.S. since May 27.
