Back in November, Rock Mafia’s Tim James revealed to MTV News that plans were being formed to turn the sexy clip for their tune “The Big Bang” into an even-sexier movie starring its video girl, [artist id=”2408193″]Miley Cyrus[/artist]. Now it seems the project is well under way.
E! News reports that Miley’s mom, Tish Cyrus, has been meeting with Suzanne Todd — a producer on films such as “Alice in Wonderland,” the “Austin Powers” films and “Memento” — to turn the music video into a full-length feature. Sources tell the website Miley is looking to reprise her role to pick up where her ghostly character left off. There’s no word yet if Kevin Zegers will return to the project.
Rock Mafia’s Antonina Armato tweeted about the project, for which her team would reportedly help write the script. “Just had a Meeting with Tish Cyrus and Suzanne Todd for ’Big Bang’ To be made into a Movie!!! #fingerscrossed,” she tweeted Monday. A rep for the group did not respond to MTV News’ request for more information by press time.
Armato said the film will be “epic.” Regarding the “Big Bang” music video, James gave props to Miley and Zegers for their turn as star-crossed lovers.
“The whole idea was to do something different,” he explained. “[The director] had such a cool vision for it … the vision was to let it fly, let the chemistry speak for itself. When we were watching them shoot it, we were like, ’Wow, this is going to be really cool.’
“Kevin and [Miley] both brought their real acting game to it. … The chemistry is not by accident. You can feel it, and it’s intense,” he continued. “I’m really proud of both of them.”
