Pic will be developed for Cyrus to play Laurel, a 15-year-old who grows up sheltered and home-schooled in a small town. Adjusting to a big high school is difficult, and her suspicion that she’s not like the other kids becomes a reality when she sprouts a pair of wings and learns that she’s a fairy. Published in May, the novel is the first of a planned four-book series.
The deal continues Disney’s relationship with Cyrus beyond “Hannah Montana.” She is currently shooting “The Last Song,” a Julie Anne Robinson-directed adaptation of the novel that Nicholas Sparks wrote as a vehicle for Cyrus. Sparks wrote the script with Jeff Van Wie.
UTA brokered the deal with Writers House.
