Millennials, are you ready to shine bright, and be a star again? Well, super model Tyra Banks is! The model continues to prove that 2017 is her year! Just a few weeks after announcing she’s returning to host “America’s Next Top Model,” and “America’s Got Talent,” the former supermodel, 43, has a movie in the works.
Reportedly, Freeform (formerly known as ABC Family), revealed their plans to revamp Banks’ popular character, Eve, of the popular TV Disney Channel film, Life-Size!
Life Size was a movie about a young girl, played by Lindsay Lohan, who brought her doll, Eve, to life after attempting to resurrect her mother with a magic spell.
In Life-Size 2, Eve will be grown up, and will awaken to help a young woman learn to live and love again, and along the way, Eve herself will experience the ups and downs of real life, in what Freeform is calling a fun, edgy, modern Christmas movie.
Banks expressed, “There is no one else that can play Eve but me, thank you very much! I’m just joking with you, but yes, I am going to be Eve.”
“One thing is it’s a very precious project to the Disney Channel so they’ve been doing a lot of re-writes and making sure that this script is really right. I’m really excited about it. I think Life-Size is so popular that it can be a feature film because it has such a cult following, so I’m really interested to see what the ratings are going to do for that. I think it’s going to be a blockbuster on TV.”
It has been 17 years since Banks first starred as the larger-than-life Barbie doll, but the network has dropped some good news. Life-Size 2 is indeed happening!
The sequel to the 2000 film will premiere in December of 2018, but this time, it will be a holiday special.
There is no word yet on who else will be added to the cast or whether Lohan will make a cameo appearance.
