Miley Cyrus’ ‘The Last Song’ Movie Release Delayed

The Nicholas Sparks-penned romance will hit theaters on April 2, Disney confirms.

After catching a sneak peek at Miley Cyrus’ next flick, “The Last Song,” at shows on her Wonder World tour , fans were no doubt excited to see the film when it was supposed to open in January. But now MTV News has confirmed that the movie’s release has been delayed to later in 2010.

The film — for which Cyrus has been showing a trailer, as well as singing a song off its soundtrack, “When I Look at You” — will now be released in April, a rep for the actress and a statement from Disney confirmed. “The date is now April 2,” a rep said. “We found a better release date than January for it. It will open Easter weekend/spring break.”

Cyrus filmed the Nicholas Sparks-penned film in Tybee Island, Georgia, over the summer. She’s also been romantically linked to her co-star Liam Hemsworth. The “Hannah Montana” star has remained tight-lipped about those rumors, but she did say that the movie affected her life in some way.

“I changed a lot when I was in Tybee Island. I feel like art really does imitate life,” Cyrus told MTV News . “I feel like I’m really showing a part of my growth as a person as well. So, I’m really excited for people to see it, just because of what it means to me, personally.”
