Miley Cyrus is attached to an adaptation of Lisa McMann's young-adult paranormal thriller novel Wake, the Risky Business blog reports.
Paramount Pictures and MTV Films are picking up film rights to the property. Christopher Landon will adapt the book for the screen.
Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Lindsay Williams are producing along with Jodi Zuckerman and Tish Cyrus of Hope Town Entertainment and Steven Schneider and Jason Blum.
Says BIZ, Wake is the first of three novels written by McMann about a 17-year-old girl named Janie with the unwanted ability to become sucked into people's dreams. When she gets pulled into a terrible nightmare, Janie dangerously goes from mere witness to participant.
Paramount and MTV Films are taking rights to the entire book series with a view to a franchise.
Cyrus' ultimate commitment to Wake rests on the finished script.
Lionsgate has won the bidding for Shawn Christensen's script Abduction, which has Taylor Lautner attached.
Deadline.com reports the screenplay sold for nearly $1 million in a sluggish spec script market. Lautner's Tailor Made production company is producing as an equal partner with Vertigo Entertainment's Roy Lee and The Gotham Group.
The project was developed on spec by Gotham and Vertigo.
Lionsgate will reportedly hurry to select a director and get a script polish in order to meet Lautner's July availability, or Tailor Made will still produce but hire another actor for the lead.
The script has Lautner playing a teen who has long felt disconnected from his parents. When he figures out why, it unleashes a chain of violent events and enters Bourne territory.
Producers include Gotham Group's Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Lee Stollman, Lee and Doug Davison and Tailor Made's Dan Lautner. Gotham Group's Bell and Vertigo's Gabriel Mason are exec producing, says Variety.
