Since the end of Hannah Montana has been confirmed, there's bound to be new projects out there for Disney star Miley Cyrus. According to a report by Variety, the 17-year-old pop sensation is currently in talks for a remake of the original French hit LOL: Laughing Out Loud. What's more, it's Demi Moore who will supposedly play her mother in the English-language version.
Miley Cyrus will be portraying the role of a 15-year-old girl who was recently dumped by her experienced boyfriend. In the hopes of moving on, she instead pursues his best friend. It's also revenge, of course.
Meanwhile, Demi Moore will reportedly be the 40-year-old divorcee mom who is struggling to get on with her life. As a single parent, she has quite a lot on her plate. Her relationship with her daughter is fraught with trouble, and things just seem to be getting worse.LOL: Laughing Out Loud
also deals with the youth's obsession with instant messaging, given the title of the film. It's going to tie in with the mother-daughter story, certainly Miley Cyrus' cup of tea.
The original version of the film starred Sophie Marceau and Christa Theret, hitting theaters in 2008. It managed to gross over $20 million. LOL: Laughing Out Loud
was written and directed by Lisa Azuelos, who will also be handling the international version.
With Miley Cyrus on board, this remake is bound to be another commercial success for the Hannah Montana
star. Since Demi Moore, another big name in Hollywood, is joining her, there's no doubt LOL: Laughing Out Loud
will be drawing in viewers.
It's another step towards more mature roles for Miley Cyrus, since she's just wrapped up filming for the Nicholas Sparks-penned movie The Last Song
. She's constantly proving that she's not just limited to Disney roles, but can branch out into bigger projects.
