CHICAGO – Miley Cyrus seems to be diving more and more into the world of film with two films already completed this year and an announcement that she will be working on a new project that she will both produce and star in, according to MTV.com.

The untitled project is said to be themed around the subject of religion. The narrative is to be a comedy revolving around a broken promise to God with the screenplay being written by Sam Brown and Jack Angelo. Cyrus will be producing the film along with her mother, Tish Cyrus, under the duo’s Hope Town Entertainment banner. Andrew Panay (“Wedding Crashers” and “When in Rome”) is also said to be attached to the project as producer.

Miley has two other films set to release by the end of 2011, “LOL” (co-starring with Ashley Greene and Demi Moore) and “So Undercover” with Jeremy Piven, Autumn Reeser, and Megan Park She has also been attached to the adaptation of the young adult thriller “Wake” and she was also rumored to be involved in the adaptation of the novel “Wings.”

While Miley works as both a singer and an actress, it seems she is taking a much deeper interest into the world of film. Prior to 2011, she had only starred in two live action films (“Hannah Montana: The Movie” and “The Last Song”) since her work on the Disney Channel hit series “Hannah Montana.” She has also had three studio albums released, “Meet Miley Cyrus” “Breakout” and “Can’t Be Tamed.”

As far as Miley’s new religious comedy, the film is set to be the third film by Hope Town Entertainment (“So Undercover” and “Wake”) and the third feature film produced by Tish Cyrus.
