With mothers like these, who needs agents?
E! News has learned exclusively that Miley Cyrus' mom, Tish Cyrus, has joined forces with a veteran Hollywood producer to turn the popster's "Big Bang" music video into a full-blown feature film.
And sources say Miley hopes to reprise her video role and star in the movie.
Tish--who serves as a producer on Miley's current flick, the sorority-themed comedy So Undercover, and also executive produced The Last Song--is partnering on the project with Suzanne Todd, the producer behind such hits as Alice in Wonderland, the Austin Powers series and Memento, to adapt a story based on the narrative told in the video (which had its world premiere last November exclusively on E!).
The music video, starring Cyrus and actor Kevin Zegers, shows the onscreen couple engaging in a series of mysteriously romantic vignettes that blur fantasy and reality. (The song is now No. 52 on the iTunes pop chart.)
Tish and Todd are hatching the script with Miley's musical collaborators Rock Mafia, the song and music video's producer.
"@Antonina_Armato Just had a Meeting with Tish Cyrus and Suzanne Todd for "Big Bang" To be made into a Movie!!!" Rock Mafia mastermind Antonina Armato tweeted Monday.
When contacted by E! News, Armato confirmed the movie plans but declined to reveal details, simply calling the planned adaptation "epic."
A source says that Miley is "on board" with the project as a possible starring vehicle. The singer is currently shooting So Undercover in New Orleans.
