In order to protect Miley Cyrus from the big baddies and further sweet-young-thing-exploitative photo shoots, author Nicholas Sparks is intervening in Miley Cyrus' career. According to MTV News, Sparks, who wrote The Notebook (fingers crossed that Ryach stay together this go-round) and A Walk to Remember, is penning both a novel and a script tailor-made for Miley. It sounds weirdly orchestrated and kind of creepy, maybe because it is? See, he just wants to help her come-of-age on the silver screen, squeaky-clean style:
Some directors have an actor in mind when they cast a movie or adapt a novel. But when you're Miley Cyrus, famous authors write a novel and movie script for you. That's what Nicholas Sparks, best-selling author of "The Notebook," is working on at the moment, according to Variety.
The 15-year-old "Hannah Montana" star will headline the untitled film, which will be produced by Disney-based "Hairspray" director Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gigbot. Gigbot told Variety that the project was inspired by a meeting with Cyrus about how to help her transition into more adult roles. Cyrus cited Mandy Moore's 2002 drama "A Walk to Remember" — also written by Sparks — as an example of how she would like to make the transition away from her teen-pop persona. As with Moore's movie, this one would feature Cyrus acting, but not singing.
