Tyra Banks Just Confirmed A 'Coyote Ugly' Reboot Is In The Works
Twenty years since Coyote Ugly was released to the world, we could soon be getting a reboot.
Tyra Banks, 46, shared the surprising news while appearing on The Kelly Clarkson Show this week and gushed about how excited she could be to make it happen.
The original flick scooped $113 million at the Box Office, which isn't amazing but the film became a cult classic, with many people learning the dance moves.
During her interview, the Dancing With the Stars host and supermodel revealed that she was due to speak with actress Mario Bello, who played Lil in the 2000 film, about making Coyote Ugly 2.
Chatting with host Kelly, Tyra said: "I was supposed to be on a conference call today about bringing Coyote Ugly back.
"Maria Bello, one of the stars of Coyote Ugly, we were supposed to be on a call. Yes, we are talking about trying to do Coyote Ugly 2 or a series."
Kelly spoke for all Coyote devotees everywhere when she said: "You should do it!"
Tyra then reminisced with Kelly about how she nailed her audition.
"For my audition for Coyote Ugly, they asked me what song I wanted to play," said the model and producer.
"I was like, 'OK, I'll take Prince's Kiss. They push play. I'm in this huge hotel room, all these casting people lined up looking at me. And I'm dancing. I'm head whipping.

"The whole song I ended up dancing. Then after I'm out of breath, and then they all just started laughing. They're like, 'We are so sorry, but we were enjoying that so much, we kept the music going.'"
Given that two whole decades have gone by since the original film's release, Kelly quizzed Tyra on whether she would still have the moves for a reboot.
"I feel like I do have the dance moves, as long as no one choreographs me and tells me exactly how to dance," replied Tyra.
She then joked that she was 'tempted' to get dance lessons with renowned choreographer Derek Hough ahead of the sequel, adding: "I'm asking you now, Derek. Can you choreograph that for me?"
The original movie follows aspiring songwriter Violet Sanford (portrayed by Piper Perabo) as she pursues a music career in New York City.
Working at bar Coyote Ugly to make a little extra cash on the side, Violet is welcomed into a family of all-singing, all-dancing female bar workers.
With a generous dose of cheesy romance and a soundtrack from LeAnn Rimes, the film was an early noughties hit.
The real Coyote Ugly Saloon in NYC - on which the film is based - was founded in 1993 by Liliana 'Lil' Lovell.
Whether we could see Tyra's fellow cast members Adam Garcia, Izabella Miko, John Goodman, Bridget Moynahan and Melanie Lynskey on board for a reboot is yet to be seen.
