Tyra Banks Wants To Make A 'Coyote Ugly' Sequel
Is there anything better than settling in for a night on the sofa and noticing Coyote Ugly is airing on telly?! We don't know whether it's the music, the storyline or the amazing cast but we *love* that film.
And Tyra Banks (who played bartender Zoe) in the 2000 movie seems to love it just as much, because she's been pushing for a sequel - and it seems the rest of the cast and crew are on board, too.
This is very good news.
"I've had a passion to do a sequel to Coyote Ugly for some time now. I've even reached out to Jerry Bruckheimer and the team and the original writer and they've had some jam sessions on what it could possibly be," she told Variety.
Tyra, 46, went on to explain they need to do "some type of rallying" on social media, possibly in the form of starting a petition for fans to sign.
Meanwhile, Piper Perabo (who played Violet) said if there was a Coyote Ugly 2, it would have to reflect how things have changed and evolved, 20 years on.
"When Tyra and I were DMing, I was like, 'We have to really think about it,' because obviously we're all 20 years older and we have to rethink the story. Like, 'Who owns the bar? What are we all doing? Do we all still know each other? And what's it about?'" She said.

"Because that movie in 2000, that was a really different moment, that was the sort of stiletto-feminism and women's rights and we're maybe in the third wave of feminism now and things have evolved and I would want the movie to reflect that evolution."
In case you need a recap, the original movie focussed on Violet Sanford, a young and struggling songwriter who moves to New York from New Jersey to try and kickstart her career.
Hoping to earn some money on the side, she trials working as a bartender in the Coyote Ugly bar. It doesn't go well, but after she breaks up a fight between two punters, manager Lil gives her another chance.
Although out of her comfort zone, she's thrown in at the deep end alongside Zoe (played by Tyra), Lil (Maria Bello) Rachel (Bridget Moynahan) and Cammie (Izabella Miko).
She also meets love interest Kevin O'Donnell (played by Adam Garcia) who is committed to helping Violet overcome her crippling stage fright. John Goodman also starred as Violet's dad, while Melanie Lynskey was cast as her best friend, Gloria.
And who could forget the incredible tracks performed by LeAnn Rimes?! The movie was a huge success when it was released 20 years ago - grossing over $113 million (£86 million) worldwide - and it's remained an iconic classic ever since.
This has *got* to happen. Brb, just off to start that petition...
