Miley Cyrus to Star in Action Movie 'Family Bond'
The next Angelina Jolie?
We have to admit we have a hard time taking Miley Cyrus seriously as a movie actress. Yes, she's an awesome singer and had a great run in a kid's television show. But in grown-up movies on the big-screen? No. But now we're learning she'll be starring in Family Bond. And HollywoodLife is saying she might be the next Angelina Jolie.

We just don't know if we believe this. I mean, Miley Cyrus, a serious actress? Like at Angelina Jolie's level? We'll have to see it before we can believe it. But HollywoodLife obtained the script to the upcoming movie, Family Bond, and claim it's going to be huge for Miley.
They do mention that Miley has officially signed on the dotted line to star in this movie, but that she is attached to it. They describe the script like so, "Family Bond is the story of big-mouthed, single-parent teen Chloe, who, after discovering her mother has been kidnapped, is forced to track down the dad she never knew. Dad happens to be Matt Cooper, a CIA agent who's whip-smart, hot and a hit with the ladies - who happens to be playing a tutor during an undercover assignment in the Cayman Islands. Dad is also not especially pleased to see the daughter he never knew existed!"
We know that there's also a love interest in the movie for Miley's character (of course!) and we can't help but wonder who will play him. Because we think there's a chance Miley could end up with her love-screen interest in real life.
We're not so sure that this role will have Miley Cyrus vying to be the next Angelina Jolie. And we don't think it's going to help her snag Angelina's role from Kristen Stewart in Wanted 2. But we do think it could help establish Miley as a more serious actress. And that's something she so desperately needs right now.
