Hollywood Continues to Show Interest in Turning Tyra Banks’s Modelland Novel Into a Movie

Tyra Banks.

This is probably the best beginning to an AP story, ever:

A tweet doesn't usually make a person cry.

But when Tyra Banks recently saw a photo posted by a fan promoting the release of her book, it meant so much that the tears started flowing when she talked about it.

Tyra has always been one for drama. She studied improv, and, with her reliably crazy antics on Top Model, has kept that show running strong for seventeen seasons. Tyra has admitted to us that Top Model will come to an end, as all good things do, when enough people stop watching it. So what to do when that happens?

Despite The Cut reporting in March that she had offers to turn her new book Modelland into a movie before it was even published, the Internet is just taking notice of it now. She discussed the film project with the AP:

"I would love to open up the 'Modelland' casting to the world," she said. "I'm looking for an Everygirl to possibly play one of the characters in the story."

Ah yes, the ubiquitous Everygirl with the construction-paper eye!
