Cyrus in talks for 'dark' new role
Miley Cyrus is reportedly in talks to shed her clean-cut image for good with a role in dark new movie Wake.
The 17-year-old actress made her name in Disney's Hannah Montana, and appeared in her first lead role away from the teen franchise in this year's (10) The Last Song. She recently revealed she wants to focus on making movies over the next few years, and now she's said to be preparing to tackle a more grown-up part in paranormal thriller Wake.
The upcoming movie, based on the best-selling novel by Lisa McMann, tells the story of a teenage girl who is sucked into other people's dreams and ends up in a living nightmare.
Wake is the first of three books and movie bosses have reportedly bought the rights to the whole trilogy with plans to turn the stories into a franchise - and Cyrus is the favourite for the lead role, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
