It’s been nearly sixteen years since the Disney Channel movie, Life-Size first hit the screen, and after many years of teasing for a follow-up, it looks like fans will finally be getting a sequel, Variety reports. And as if no time has passed, it’s been confirmed that Tyra Banks will be revisiting her role as Eve.
It’s been a while, so for a quick recap, Life-Size tells the tale of a young Casey played by Lindsay Lohan who wishes for her deceased mother to come back to life. Things get a little mixed up and instead of her mother, it’s Casey’s unwanted doll Eve that returns to life. Tyra’s character lights up the scene, changing Casey and everyone else’s perspective as well as wardrobe.
When rumors of a possible sequel hit the Internet, fans were unsure if Tyra would return to her beloved role, but the supermodel said, “There is no one else that can play Eve but me, thank you very much! I’m just joking with you, but yes, I am going to be Eve.”
As for her co-star Lindsay Lohan, little to no details have been released on her return or other casting for the film. “We have not talked about casting at all so I have no idea who is going to be the young person that will be the owner of Eve. We haven’t gotten to that,” Banks revealed.
As far as where the film will pick up from and where the storyline will take Eve is still unclear. It looks like we’ll just have to wait until its likely premiere some time in late 2016. No matter where life takes Eve, there’s no doubt she will be shining bright.
