Miley Cyrus to star in Woody Allen’s Amazon series
Woody Allen has an unlikely new female star: Miley Cyrus.
Cyrus will star in Allen’s not-yet-titled Amazon series, a spokeswoman for Cyrus confirmed.
The head-spinning casting combines the 80-year-old filmmaker with the 23-year-old former Disney star.
Cyrus will star alongside Elaine May in the six half-hour episodes planned to run this year.
On Instagram, Cyrus posted a painting of Allen that she said had been beside her bed for years.
Cyrus wrote that she was “looking into his eyes when I got the call to be a part of the cast.”
Fuck yeah ! Stoked to be in Woody Allens first series!!!!! I had claimed 2016 to be my year of "chillin the fuck out" but next to my bed for a few years now has been this portrait of W.A. & I was looking into his eyes when I got the call to be apart of the cast and work alongside the bad a$$ Elaine May & da dude himself! 1960zzzz here I cummmmm 🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄
Allen has previously voiced regrets about his first foray into streaming television.
At the Cannes Film Festival in May he called it “a catastrophic mistake.”
