We know we've swung this sentence around a lot during the hellfire that has been this year, but this truly might be some of the best entertainment news to surface yet, acting as a soothing balm for the relentless garbage that has been the past 10 months. Tyra Banks has confirmed she will be working on a Coyote Ugly sequel.
During an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show last week, the supermodel casually noted, when asked about everyone's favourite chick-flick, “I literally was supposed to be on a conference call today about bringing Coyote Ugly back,” (!!).
Twenty years after the original film came out, it would appear that there are talks of bringing it back, and my little gay heart and I will certainly not protest. "We were supposed to be on a call today, and I'm talking to you and I can't talk to them," Banks continued. "Yes, we are talking about trying to do Coyote Ugly 2 or a series." by we, she was referring to Maria Bello, who played Lil in the movie, to chat about the project.
For those who aren't familiar with the original film (my condolences), the story centres on Violet Sanford (Played by Piper Perabo), A naive, twenty-something-year-old who moves to New York in pursuit of becoming a singer and to make extra cash, starts working at an insane bar, Coyote Ugly, complete with a "hell no H2o" policy and frequent bar-top dancing. The real Coyote Ugly Saloon does in fact exist and was founded in NYC by Liliana Lovell in 1993.
During her chat with Clarkson, Banks' moves came into question, considering it's been two decades since we first saw her haul-ass onto a bar top and go nuts. "I feel like I do have the dance moves, as long as no one choreographs me and tells me exactly how to dance," Banks proclaimed. "I'm kind of tempted to ask [Derek Hough] to choreograph like 16 counts for me to see if I can do it." We're rooting for you, Tyra.
There is yet to be a concrete announcement on the details of the reboot, but you can be sure we'll be all over the news once there is. In the meantime, please enjoy the original trailer as a refresher.
