Tyra Banks Wants to Turn 'Modelland' Novel Into Movie

"I would love to open up the 'Modelland' casting to the world," she says.

Tyra Banks made her debut as an author with Modelland, the first of a three-book young adult series that centers on an awkward teen who gets invited to attend an elite modeling academy.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Banks said she was approached by a successful film producer (whom she didn't identify) not long after she announced plans to publish the book.

"I would love to open up the Modelland casting to the world," she told the AP. "I'm looking for an Everygirl to possibly play one of the characters in the story."Read more at Hollywood reporter
