For those who missed Tyra Banks in the last season of America’s Next Top Model, worry not: the model is returning to host the next season, and she’ll be acting again. Even better, she’ll be returning as Eve in the sequel of Life-Size!
Life-Size is a TV film starring a young Lindsay Lohan who accidentally brings a doll to life. Banks played Eve, the perfect doll.
The sequel was announced as early as 2012, but the script went through a series of rewrites. Banks told Hollywood Life, “We have gotten many drafts of scripts, and the one thing I can say is that to the Disney Channel executives, Life-Size is so precious. It’s like their baby, so they just want it perfect.”
This month, it was announced that it would be released on Freeform, a cable channel in the US, on December 2018.
According to Freeform: “In the sequel, everyone’s favorite doll Eve has grown up. This time, she’s magically awoken to help a young woman learn to live and love again, and along the way, Eve herself will experience the ups and downs of real life in a fun, edgy, modern Christmas movie.”
