Disney star is considering a role in the remake of the French mother-daughter comedy.
Miley Cyrus might just have found her next big-screen project in “LOL: Laughing Out Loud.” According to a report in Variety, the 17-year-old Disney star is in talks to join the English-language remake of the French original, with Demi Moore likely to play her mother.
The film will follow Cyrus as a 15-year-old who is cast off by her boyfriend and decides to pursue his best friend. Meanwhile, the teen’s 40-year-old mother (the 47-year-old Moore) is divorced and finding it difficult to restart her life as a single woman struggling to maintain a civil relationship with her daughter.
The original “LOL,” starring Sophie Marceau, hit theaters in 2008 and went on to gross over $20 million, according to Variety. Lisa Azuelos, who wrote and directed the original, will also write and direct the new version.

For those of you who might be looking to eat at a restaurant at the Disneyland Resort, here are two restaurants that have Valentines Day menus available: Steakhouse 55 at the Disneyland Hotel and Carnation Cafe, located on Main Street, U.S.A in Disneyland park.
The sweetheart dinner menu at Steakhouse 55 starts with a celebratory champagne toast with etched champagne flutes filled with Magical Sparkling Sweet Brachetto Rose or Iron Horse Fairytale Cuvee. For the first course, you can choose from Steakhouse 55s signature onion soup or wedge salad. There are four heartwarming main entrees on the menu, including Certified Angus Filet Mignon, Broiled Halibut Steak with Lemon Caper Sauce, Shelton Free-Range Double Breast of Chicken and Portobello Mushroom Stack with Roasted Peppers, and they are served with your choice of steamed asparagus spears or potatoes au gratin. Its the dessert that really caught my eye though. Its a heart-shaped Chocolate & Kahlua Mousse with a Crispy Praline Center. Mmmmm, sounds good.
Carnation Cafe, a more laid back and casual experience, is featuring an angel hair pasta with pesto marinated shrimp and roasted red bell pepper cream sauce. For dessert, theyre serving a strawberry and passion fruit shortcake with whipped heavy cream.
Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling 714-781-DINE.
