‘The Notebook scribe’ Nicholas Sparks writing untitled adaptation
If you have a younger sister or indeed if you saw that oh-so-infamous Vanity Fair issue, chances are you know Miley Cyrus- the star of Disney’s Hannah Montana.
Now it appears the tween/teen superstar is to return in an untitled film that is being tailor-made for the Cyrus star by author Nicholas Sparks.
Sparks, who wrote ‘The Notebook’ is writing an untitled novel and simultaneously working on a screenplay adaptation for the film. Tish Cyrus will be exec producer.
The project came about after Disney exec Jason Reed met with the actress, who is slowly broadening her image and transitioning to adult fare. She mentioned ‘A Walk to Remember’ as an example of what she hoped for.
Sparks came back with a premise for a novel that intrigued Cyrus, her family and the producers. They are keeping the plot under wraps.
The book will be published in fall 2009 by Grand Central Publishing.
