With her career as Hannah Montana behind her, it's difficult to imagine Miley Cyrus as anyone else. Even so, she's been trying really hard to break free of that character. She's been making her own type of music and has even appeared on a Sex and the City 2 cameo. Now, she's all ready to expose her role in the Nicholas Sparks-penned movie The Last Song.
There's been plenty of buzz surrounding the film ever since the 16-year-old popstar was romantically linked to her co-star Liam Hemsworth. But maybe all that was just for their scenes.
As we expect, it has family drama and it's a romance. It has music too, and it's not exactly what Miley Cyrus is famous for. Maybe that's a good thing?MTV News
has posted the official trailer of The Last Song
on their website, noting how transformed Miley Cyrus seems to have become since her Disney beginnings. Even she has noticed the change in herself and declared that this is the direction she's planning to take in her career.
"I changed a lot when I was in Tybee Island [Georgia, filming 'Last Song']," Miley Cyrus told the publication. "I feel like art really does imitate life. So just showing this movie, I feel like I'm really showing a part of my growth as a person as well . So I'm really excited for people to see it, just because of what it means to me, personally."
Well, let's just see what Miley has in store for her fans on The Last Song
. Given the Parental Guidance note before the trailer, we can bet it's far from Hannah Montana
. Will her tweener fans stick around after this?
On The Last Song
, Miley plays the title character Ronnie Miller. The musically inclined teen who got accepted into Julliard has been struggling with the divorce of her parents. But she has to spend summer with her estranged dad to "reconnect." There, she lucks out and meets this volleyball player (Liam Hemsworth), who she falls for.
We all know the boy-meets-girl story, and The Last Song
isn't all that different from that formula. Then again, fans of Miley Cyrus might enjoy it anyway. The movie hits theaters in April next year.
