Not to be confused with NBC's spy series "Undercovers," Miley Cyrus has been chosen to star in So Undercovers, an action comedy to be directed by Tom Vaughn (What Happens in Vegas). Get ready to roll your eyes at this plot synopsis:
Cyrus will play a tough, street-smart private eye hired by the FBI to go undercover in a college sorority.
Deadline brings the story, which includes quotes from execs at Exclusive Media Group, the finance/production company that will handle this project as well as George Clooney's upcoming The Ides of March. Co-chairman Guy East had some high praise for the Disney diva:
"She has become a worldwide superstar in every field she has become involved in, from movies to fashion, to music and TV," East said. "Her show is not only the most successful cable TV series, it has been released in 150 countries and 26 languages. And her movies have grossed $630 million worldwide. She has become the biggest female brand in the world, and this has the potential to be a massive audience movie."
At first, I kind of balked when I read his quote about Miley being the "biggest female brand in the world," but the more I think about it, he's probably right. Regardless, that still does nothing to generate interest in this movie. I'm sure we've got some Miley fans out there - hey, I dug "Party in the USA" as much as the next guy - so does anyone plan on seeing this?
