Speaking to Popstar magazine, the 17-year-old said that the film is "not for the [Hannah Montana] audience".
"I want the fans that have grown up with me from 16-26 who will respond to older material. I have to choose scripts that are right for someone who is 18 because that is me," Cyrus said.
She added about the new project: "It’s very different going from a show with a huge audience and fan base to something... independent. But I’m excited to work on a film that is going to touch people.
"It’s edgy and different and I don’t know how the fans will react, but it’s something I can relate to."
LOL co-stars Ashley Greene, Demi Moore, Marlo Thomas, and Thomas Jane.
