Miley Cyrus, whose big screen credits include THE LAST SONG, LOL and SO UNDERCOVER is attached to star as the female lead in the upcoming thriller WAKE, based on Lisa McMann’s bestselling 2008 novel. James Ward Byrkit (RANGO) and Alex Manugian (COHERENCE) will pen the script for the film with Paramount Pictures and MTV Films collaborating on distribution. WAKE chronicles the high school life and loves of Janie Hannagan (Cyrus), a teen who has the ability to enter other people’s dreams.

The project has been in the works since 2010 when Christopher London (DISTURBIA) took a stab at writing the screenplay. WAKE is the first in a young-adult novel trilogy and the plan is two kickstart a big screen franchise once all the pieces come together. Lindsay Williams, Jodi Zuckerman-Weiner and Cyrus’ production company Hope Town will produce. The search is currently ongoing for a director so stay tuned.


For seventeen-year-old Janie, getting sucked into other people’s dreams is getting old. Especially the falling dreams, the naked-but-nobody-notices dreams, and the sex-crazed dreams. Janie’s seen enough fantasy booty to last her a lifetime. She can’t tell anybody about what she does they’d never believe her, or worse, they’d think she’s a freak. So Janie lives on the fringe, cursed with an ability she doesn’t want and can’t control. Then she falls into a gruesome nightmare, one that chills her to the bone. For the first time, Janie is more than a witness to someone else’s twisted psyche. She is a participant.
