Have you read Tyra Banks‘ debut novel, Modelland yet? Did it make you want to see the characters and story lines brought to life? If so, there’s a good chance you will. This first installment in Tyra’s Lord of the Rings-meets-Harry Potter-meets ANTM fantasy trilogy is now in stores. And like the aforementioned series, to which Modelland is only vaguely similar, Tyra’s tome could already be Hollywood-bound.
The book just hit shelves this month and, according to the AP, Tyra has already been approached by “a successful film producer.” “I would love to open up the `Modelland’ casting to the world,” she said. “I’m looking for an Everygirl to possibly play one of the characters in the story.”
We’re not entirely sure what that means, but there you have it. Tyra’s looking for her “mismatched eye”-d Tookie de la Crème. We love the idea of an open casting and could totally picture a whole ANTM-esque televised special around it. Plus, there are already prototypes for smizes and Tookie’s costume from Tyra’s insane New York promotional tour. Actually, we fully support this movie being made just for the opportunity to see people wearing these.
Would you go see it?
