In the Industry: Wilde will play a mom, Criss to kiss Wiig

Former child star Miley Cyrus is moving up in Hollywood. The actress/singer is set to star in and produce a God-themed comedy project with Paramount, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Plot details aren't being revealed yet, but the movie, which Cyrus will produce with her mom, will feature some sort of broken promise to God.

Darren Criss, meanwhile, is also parlaying his TV fame into a choice film role.

The “Glee” actor will play the "younger love interest" in Kristen Wiig's "Imogene," according to New York Magazine's Vulture. The movie's about a woman who fakes her suicide to try and get back with her ex but ends up living with her “Jersey Shore”-esque mom (played by Annette Bening).

Luckily for Criss, this role means he'll get to make out with Wiig.

According to the Huffington Post, Justin Timberlake and Olivia Wilde star in the upcoming Andrew Niccol sci-fi thriller, "In Time," but they won’t be playing opposite each other – they’ll be playing mother and son!  The film, slated for release October 28, is set in a world where people can stop aging at age 25.

And in what’s sure to be an adorable film, Reese Witherspoon will star in Disney's "Wish List," reports Deadline.

The comedy is about a little girl who makes 10 wishes in a wishing well that don't come true because the coin didn't reach the bottom. Years later as an ambitious career woman, Witherspoon's character has to deal with the fallout when her coin dislodges and all 10 of her childhood wishes come true.

    Wish List does sound adorable! Imogene sounds interesting, too. I could do without Miley Cyrus. The sci-fi movie might be OK.

    I god themed comedy?

    The concept of a god themed comedy starring hannah montana is far funnier than the actual show has any chance to be.
