Tyra Banks Wants Zendaya For The Long-Awaited “Life Size 2″

Tyra Banks Wants Zendaya For The Long-Awaited Life Size 2Tyra Banks had a chance to chat about “Life Size 2,” the sequel to her 2000 movie about a doll who comes to life. Tyra revealed that five years and four scripts have gone into the project, which will be out on Freeform by Christmas 2018.

She shared that the story will focus on a grown-up Eve dealing with “more adult things.” Tyra is set to reprise her role as Eve, the doll who came to life, but she has some thoughts about who else might appear in the movie.

“I would love Zendaya,” Tyra said. “I think Zendaya would be really interesting.” Zendaya appeared on the most recent season of Tyra’s show “America’s Next Top Model,” but Tyra had surrendered her hosting duties to Rita Ora. The idea of the two working together has a lot of people excited.

Tyra also addressed whether or not Lindsay Lohan, her co-star in the original “Life Size” film, would return.

“I have to talk to my fellow producers, but I think that would be interesting, right?” Tyra asked in reply. “I mean–that was my girl back in the day.”

#WeNeedMore: Zendaya Partners With Verizon To Increase Minority Visibility In Technology

Zendaya joins Verizons fight for tech in schoolZendaya wants to let her younger fans know that the world doesn’t need another version of herself in Verizon’s #WeNeedMore campaign. To promote her participation, the actress sat down with Seventeen Magazine to discuss why the campaign, and minority representation in technology, is so important to her.

“It’s something that I directly I connect to because it deals with children, education and technology,” Zendaya says about her reasonings for joining the campaign. “There are a gazillion different jobs out that the are creative, interesting, and different, and not every kid has to follow what they see in the media as cool jobs.”

Her mother’s teaching background was also another reason she joined the campaign. “She implemented and brought tech into her school on her own, and it really helped her students,” Zendaya says. “It helped them to learn how to use movie-editing software and put together projects in ways beyond writing an essay.”

It’s not just younger kids the singer wants to explore the world of tech. She especially wants young girls to join the movement. “It’s time for everyone to have equal opportunities, and that means no matter what your economic class, no matter what race you are, what gender you are, you should have the same chance at success as anybody else,” she explains.
