Miley Cyrus Is Dracula's Daughter
Helping to run Hotel Transylvania

Miley Cyrus Is Dracula's Daughter

Having Billy Ray Cyrus as your old man must be difficult enough (except when he's moulding you into a world-famous and ultra-wealthy TV star), but Miley Cyrus' new screen dad is even more embarrassing: she'll be voicing Dracula's daughter in Sony's animated Hotel Transylvania.

The film is all about the famous count (Adam Sandler) running a resort for famous monsters, away from the prying eyes and burning torches of the normal world. Dracula is fiercely protective of his little girl Mavis, whose adventurous spirit he fears will take her away from him. But he then has to deal with Mavis taking a shine to an "ordinary guy" who stumbles into the hotel. You know how it is: your carriage breaks down in a thunderstorm, and there's a light over at the Dracula place...

There's a bit of the Munsters about the normal-girl-living-among-monsters scenario, and not a little Mad Monster Party in general. But there's some interesting voice talent working alongside Sandler and Cyrus: Steve Buscemi and Molly Shannon are playing werewolf couple Wayne and Wanda; Cee Lo Green is Murray the Mummy; David Spade is Griffin the Invisible Man; Kevin James and Fran Drescher are Frankenstein's Monster and his bride; and David Koechner is Quasimodo. Jonathan the normal guy is voiced by Andy Samberg.

And the director is the awesome Genndy Tartakovsky (Samurai Jack), although the CG animation won't quite be along the lines of his usual signature style. Check out Sony's reveal of Mavis Dracula below, for an idea of the film's look. Hotel Transylvania should be released in September 2012.
