Miley starring in ‘The Last Song’

From Variety: Disney has been willing to pony up the coin to keep its biggest star, Miley Cyrus, in the family. Her ‘Hannah Montana: The Movie’ bows April 10, after last year’s concert pic surprised Hollywood with a $70 million worldwide haul.

After her titular feature comes a tailor-made Disney vehicle for Cyrus based on an upcoming Nicholas Sparks book, tentatively titled ‘The Last Song,” for which he’s also penning the script. But it’s worth noting that the package, again to be produced by Shankman’s Offspring shingle, never went on the open market.

‘Miley might be a little bit more loyal than the others,’ said one Offspring exec, who is involved with ‘Last Song.’ But it also depends on how much an actor may want to shed the Disney persona.

Miley still has a few years to play the squeaky-clean teen ingenue. Stars
like Zac Efron, at 21, can’t really portray the high school hero anymore, and it has become a necessity for him to begin to distance himself from the Disney brand if he wants to have a viable leading man career.
