*Mar 22 - 00:04*Nabbing herself a new role, Miley Cyrus has reportedly signed on to star in Sony Pictures Animation project, “Hotel Transylvania”.

The former “Hannah Montana” star is said to be taking on the character of Mavis, who is the daughter of the Adam Sandler role of Dracula.

“Hotel Transylvania” is being directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, with a plot summary as follows: “Welcome to the Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s (Sandler) lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free from meddling from the human world. But here’s a little known fact about Dracula: he is not only the Prince of Darkness; he is also a dad. Over-protective of his teenage daughter, Mavis, Dracula fabricates tales of elaborate dangers to dissuade her adventurous spirit. As a haven for Mavis, he opens the Hotel Transylvania, where his daughter and some of the world’s most famous monsters – Frankenstein and his bride, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, a family of werewolves, and more – can kick back in safety and peace. For Drac, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem – but his world could come crashing down when one ordinary guy stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis.”

Also starring Kevin James as Frank, Fran Drescher as Eunice, David Spade as Quasimodo and Steve Buscemi and Molly Shannon as Wayne and Wanda, the film is eyeing a September 21, 2012 release date.
