Miley Cyrus is about to take a page out of Mandy Moore's book.

The Hannah Montana star, 15, is set to star in an untitled Disney film based on an upcoming novel by author Nicholas Sparks, Variety reports.

The idea for the film came out of a meeting where Cyrus used Moore's A Walk to Remember – a film adaptation of Sparks' 1999 novel – as a model of the type of project she hoped to work on next.

Sparks is writing the book and the screenplay simultaneously. Cyrus's mother, Tish, will serve as the film’s executive producer.

Cyrus will not sing in the drama, whose plot is a secret for now.
