Tyra Banks has announced that she is officially on board to star in Life-Size 2. The sequel to the 2000 Disney movie will premiere on Freeform and the news was announced at the Freeform Upfront Presentation and on Twitter, and she even revealed what the plot will be now that so much time has passed since it was first released.
One word: LIFESIZE— Tyra Banks (@tyrabanks) April 19, 2017
The first movie was about a young girl who tries to resurrect her dead mother with magic, but instead, ends up bringing a doll named Eve to life.
"Five years, four scripts, and finally we realized, Eve needs to grow up. She's been around for a while. She's been alive for a while. She needs to grow up and experience more adult things. So, you're going to see a very different Eve on Freeform," she told ET.
A young Lindsay Lohan starred in the original movie and some fans are demanding that she appears in the sequel. Though Tyra has yet to reach out to her, she is open to the possibility of having the Mean Girls star back on the set with her.
"I love Lindsay. I have not [reached out to offer a cameo], but I think it would be interesting. I have to talk to my producing partners. I think it would be interesting, right? That was my girl back in the day!" she told ET.
If a cameo from Lindsay does not happen, Tyra has already eyed another Disney Channel star to take on the role of being her co-star and it is none other than Zendaya. OMG.
"I would love Zendaya. I think Zendaya would be really interesting," she said.
The movie was initially supposed to be premiering on Freeform at the end of this year but it looks like now fans have to wait an additional year because Tyra has so much on her plate. The model is currently the host of America's Got Talent, she will be back to hosting her show America's Next Top Model, while teaching at Stanford University and raising her one-year-old child. They then decided it would be best to hold off and have it release at the end of 2018.
"Can you believe we were thinking about doing it at the end of this year?! I was gonna fit it in between Top Model and AGT and teaching at Stanford and seeing my baby. So, we were like ... Christmas 2018 will make it a better Life-Size."
