HollywoodLife.com has seen the script for Miley’s upcoming flick, Family Bond, and we have to say -her character is pretty badass!

Miley Cyrus is the poster child for modern day teens, playing tough, wise beyond her years characters in films like The Last Song and LOL: Laughing Out Loud. But now the 17-year-old starlet is bringing some new game to the table and moving beyond the drama genre to become an action star!

HollywoodLife.com has obtained a copy of Family Bond, a film which Executive Producer Adam Siegel‘s office confirms the Hannah Montana actress is attached to (note: she hasn’t signed her contract on the dotted line yet) – and we have to say this is one heck of a star-making role! In fact, after showing her tough side in this film, Kristen Stewart may even have some stiff competition for Angelina Jolie‘s part in Wanted 2!

Family Bond is the story of big-mouthed, single-parent teen Chloe, who, after discovering her mother has been kidnapped, is forced to track down the dad she never knew. DAD happens to be Matt Cooper, a CIA agent who’s whip-smart, hot and a hit with the ladies – who happens to be playing a tutor during an undercover assignment in the Cayman Islands. DAD is also not especially pleased to see the daughter he never knew existed!

However annoyed he may be at her presence, Chloe turns out to be an asset – and helps Matt beat the bad guys! Not only does she distract security guards by taking her top off and playing a dumb,  helpless blond — but she even (SPOILER ALERT) KILLS A MAN who’s about to kill her dad. Um….aw?

Of course, there’s love in Family Bond, too. Miley needs a love interest, after all. Grant Hopkins is the 17-year-old son of the Governor, and described as “just starting to come into his looks.” He’s got a thing for Chloe – but the two really don’t engage in any hanky panky.We do know that Miley will probably have a thing for the guy who plays Grant in real life, as she seems to have a thing for co-stars like Liam Hemsworth and Douglas Booth.

This sounds like a pretty kick-butt role for Ms. Miley — and we hope she signs on! For a final thought – how cool would it be if Tom Cruise played her dad???
