Miley Cyrus Wanted for Dark New Role

By: Celebuzz / January 11, 2011

With Hannah Montana wrapping up forever and ever, Miley Cyrus may soon be moving on to a dark, spooky, Inception-like thriller.

Disturbia director Christopher Landon declares that the upcoming thriller Wake is “sort of a vehicle for Miley Cyrus,” who he says “is looking to sort of get out of her cutesy Hannah Montana image.”

Landon tells the blog Shock Till You Drop that he hopes Miley will sign on to the movie about a girl with a freaky narcolepsy (sleeplessness) that finds her passing out and falling into other people’s dreams. Wake could end up being the first in a horror franchise, as the film is based on the young-adult novels by author Lisa McMann.

If Miley really does want to break out of her Hannah mold, Wake could be just the ticket. Her post-Hannah movie career so far entails two teen movies, LOL, which is said to contain some racy elements, and So Undercover, the sorority-fest with new pal Kelly Osbourne.

Will Miley sign on for Wake? Celebuzz reached out to Miley’s reps but has not yet received a response. Do you think she should do it? Sound off in the comments.
