Tyra Banks Says ‘Coyote Ugly’ Reboot Is in the Works!

Get ready to dance on top of a bar, Real Fam!

On Wednesday’s episode of “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” Tyra Banks revealed she is in talks to star in a possible reboot of the 2000 film “Coyote Ugly.”

“I literally was supposed to be on a conference call today about bringing ‘Coyote Ugly’ back,” the new ”Dancing with the Stars” host told Kelly Clarkson.

“We were supposed to be on a call today, and I’m talking to you and I can’t talk to them,” the supermodel added. “Yes, we are talking about trying to do ‘Coyote Ugly 2’ or a series.”

Based on the real-life international bar chain, the romantic musical comedy-drama starred Piper Perabo as Violet, an aspiring songwriter who finds employment at the trendy NYC bar.

Banks, who played fellow bartender Zoë, co-starred alongside Adam Garcia, John Goodman, Izabella Miko, and Bridget Moynahan.

In her interview, Banks also dished about her “Coyote Ugly” audition, where she was forced to bust a groove in front of a room of people.

“For my audition for ‘Coyote Ugly,’ they asked me what song I wanted to play,” she said. “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.”

She continued, “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.’”

While Banks feels she still has the dance moves to perform the film’s iconic bar-top dance, she wants to enlist the help of “DWTS” judge Derek Hough.

“I’m kind of tempted to ask him to choreograph like 16 counts for me to see if I can do it,” she said. “I’m asking you now, Derek. Can you choreograph that for me?”

During this week’s episode of the dance competition show, Banks mistakenly named Vernon Davis and Peta Murgatroyd as one of the bottom two couples.

While explaining that her “cards were wrong,” Banks corrected the mistake and announced that the bottom two were actually Anne Heche and Keo Motsepe, and Monica Aldama and Valentin Chmerkovskiy.

Ultimately, Heche and Motsepe were sent home.
