Tyra Banks is resurrecting past Disney role in 'Life Size'

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Jan 20, 2014

Former full-time supermodel and part-time actress Tyra Banks is in talks with Disney to resurrect their 2000 Disney flick, "Life Size."

If you have a daughter, or you yourself were watching original Disney movies during the Millennial, you'll remember that Banks co-starred with a young Lindsay Lohan in this made-for-TV flick.

The plotline is simple: Lohan's doll, Eve, comes to life, mixed in with a little witchcraft, of course.

"'Life Size' will be back and better than ever," said Banks to Digital Spy. "I'm under contract with Disney and I can't talk about it at all, except that it's coming. But it will be very different, very different. Very modern - a modern take."

Upon hearing the news, Miley Cyrus took to Twitter, to show her support by posting lyrics featured in the soundtrack of this cult Disney classic, writing, "Shine bright. Shine far. Don't be shy. BE A STAR! Watching Life Size in honor of the sequel."

Lohan is unlikely to return as the lead, although the "Life Size" cast remains unannounced.
