Not by much, but still, you're better than this.

In her most believable role to date, Miley Cyrus plays a private investigator recruited by the FBI and sent to college in order to keep an eye on a star witness. I don’t know why the FBI would employ a private investigator or why they wouldn’t put a star witness in protective custody or how changing Miley Cyrus, P.I.’s flannel shirt out for a dress constitutes a makeover or how this movie doesn’t feature comic relief from a pet piglet sidekick that covers its eyes with a little pig hoof whenever Miley makes a social faux pas. If any movie deserves a socially-aware piglet sidekick, it’s this one. That’s on you, screenwriter Allan Loeb.

The Miley Cyrus comedy So Undercover has finally found a distributor in the Weinstein Company. Our nation can breathe a collective sigh of relief to know that this October, the viewing public will be treated to an action comedy starring Miley Cyrus, Jeremy Piven, Mike O’Malley, and Kelly Osbourne with the following plot:

Cyrus plays a young girl who is hired by the FBI to go undercover at a college sorority. She’s a tough streetwise private detective who has to become a refined sophisticated university girl to protect the daughter of a former mobster.”

A (made up) Weinstein Company exec was (fake) quoted as (not) saying:

“Yes, that face and twang DO say ‘tough streetwise private detective,’ why do you ask? I think she’ll totally pull it off. Well, maybe she does look a little young in the face, and maybe she doesn’t have a tough bone in her body, but… um, Piven! Piven will pull this thing together right? He’s dependable! Oh god, what have we done?”

(Deadline)

Jeremy Piven’s Got Dirt On Miley Cyrus http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jeremy-pivens-got-dirt-on-miley-cyrus/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jeremy-pivens-got-dirt-on-miley-cyrus/#comments Tue, 11 Jan 2011 21:58:11 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=15430 Anthropomorphic feminine wash Jeremy Piven has signed on to So Undercover, a not-at-all-gritty Miley Cyrus vehicle.

Anthropomorphic feminine wash Jeremy Piven has signed on to So Undercover, a Miley Cyrus vehicle that entails her being a private detective for some reason, then infiltrating a sorority house for some other reason. The details either haven’t been disclosed or don’t exist. Tom Vaughan, director of Extraordinary Measures, will helm the script written by Allan Loeb and Steve Pearl. Cinema Blend reports that cell phone salesman Mike O’Malley will be also be joining the cast as Miley Cyrus‘ father. So Undercover is expected to be more of a “teen” picture than her earlier “Hannah Montana” work in an effort to meet the slightly older tastes of her again fan base.

Piven will play Special Agent Armon, who will presumably play Cyrus‘ grown-up foil. Who will emerge victorious? It’s anyone’s guess. Beyond the aforementioned, So Undercover will star “Gossip Girl“‘s Matthew Settle, Josh Bowman and Kelly Osbourne as a sorority sister. The timing of these casting announcements are a little odd, considering Cyrus is currently in New Orleans filming the movie. They’ll probably just punch Piven in later using CGI.

No release date is set, but look for this film later this year, in time for awards season.
