Miley Cyrus drops out of 'Hotel Transylvania'
Looks like the accommodations at Hotel Transylvania may not have been up to snuff for Miley Cyrus. A rep for Sony Pictures has confirmed to EW that the singer is no longer set to voice Mavis, the daughter of Dracula (Adam Sandler), in the Sony Picture Animation production. The studio had no comment on why Cyrus was leaving the film, and Cyrus’ rep did not immediately return a request seeking comment. (E! Online first reported the departure.)
EW reported exclusively last November that Cyrus had joined the production to play the teenage daughter of the famed vampire, who constructs an elaborate resort for things that go bump in the night as a way of protecting his daughter from the real world. The rest of the cast includes Kevin James as Frankenstein, Fran Drescher as the Bride of Frankenstein, David Spade as the Invisible Man, David Koechner as Quasimodo, Cee Lo Green as Murray the Mummy, and Steve Buscemi and Molly Shannon as a pair of werewolves. Genndy Tartakovsky (Star Wars: Clone Wars) is directing the film, which is slated for release on Sept. 21, 2012.
