Miley Cyrus to star in Woody Allen's Amazon series

26 January 2016, 20:53

New York - Following in the footsteps of Diane Keaton and Scarlett Johansson, Woody Allen has an unlikely new female star: Miley Cyrus.

Cyrus will star in Allen's as-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."

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."
