Tyra Banks Says Life-Size 2 is Filming Right Now!

Retired (from the runway) supermodel Tyra Banks has made good on her promise to fans of her 2000 film Life-Size — a sequel is coming. The business mogul tweeted last night that filming began yesterday on the sequel, Life-Size 2.

The first film starred very young Lindsay Lohan, who played a widower’s (Jere Burns) daughter who uses magic to try and resurrect her mother but ends up bringing a doll (Banks) to life.

Banks posted:

Now filming: LIFE SIZE 2.

It’s time y’all! You’ve waited long enough.

Could not find one single woman more perfect to co-star with Eve than the magnificently fierce @franciaraisa.

See you on @FreeformTV this holiday season! #LifeSize2 #ShineBrightShineFar

Banks recently returned to the reality competition series America’s Next Top Model on VH1, taking over for host Rita Ora, who was touring during scheduled production. Having founded the series, Tyra’s return marked a boost in ratings numbers for the show, as well as a boost in the general tone and pacing of the show.

We’ll let you know when any additional information about the sequel is announced, like when we may be seeing Life-Size 2 premiering on Freeform.
