Movie News: Miley Cyrus’ New Movie, Jackman Comedy, “Bridget Jones”

— Though soundtrack sales for the latest “Hannah Montana” disc were down from the last installment, Miley Cyrus retains her high-profile at Disney. Variety reports that Disney has acquired the rights to a film adaptation of “Wings” and plans to develop the film with Miley Cyrus as the lead.

Cyrus will play Laurel, a fifteen-year-old who, having been home-schooled and sheltered her whole life, struggles to fit in at the high school. She learns that she is indeed different–she is a fairy.

Cyrus is currently shooting “The Last Song.”
