All 'Life-Size' fans were left pretty disappointed upon learning not so long ago that the movie's upcoming reboot is not going to feature the original cast member - Lindsay Lohan. And while Tyra Banks reviving the reboot is an ecstatic news in itself, looks like she just teased something to cheer fans up even more. In a recent interview, Tyra shared that "[Lindsay] will be in ['Life-Size 2'] in some kind of way," and ever since fans haven't stopped buzzing about the new piece of info.
The movie's reboot will see Tyra returning to the fictional town of Sunnyvale where she had dabbled in medicine, aerospace and also the fashion industry as career options in the original movie. Granted, she did that as the life-size doll, Eve, but clearly, that doesn't undermine her potential as the magical doll.
"I actually think we are going to surpass expectations because [for] me as a producer and actor in it, it surpassed my own expectations," Tyra has recently shared with The Hollywood Reporter. For those clueless about the plot - it revolves around a young girl, Casey Stuart, (played by Lindsay) who accidentally transforms her doll into the ideal living woman who is perfect in every single way. And no matter how intensely Tyra wants Lindsay to be in the sequel, she is a tad bit disappointed that the former child star couldn't be actively involved in the sequel despite having expressed interest previously.
"She has this new TV show on MTV about this club so she couldn't make it, which was sad," Tyra explained. "[Lindsay] will be in the movie in some kind of way," the producer teased. "We'll see where that ends up." But things are still looking bright for the reboot as Tyra's current co-star in Life-Size 2, Francia Raisa, has added quite the perks to the reboot with her impressive skills. "We went to a spa together before we started shooting and that really bonded us," said Banks. "That girl can act, it's in her eyes."
'Life-Size 2' has bagged a Christmas release in December during Freeform’s 25 Days of Christmas.
As for Tyra's career otherwise, she also expressed the possibility of her long-running reality competition America’s Next Top Model coming to a foreseeable end. "I wonder, should I stop at [season] 25? Because I don't want it to stop at, like, 29. You know what I mean? You want it to stop at a round number,” Tyra, who serves as a host on the show, said.
