Life-Size tells the story of a young girl who accidentally brings her doll to life while attempting to cast a spell to bring back her mother, who has recently passed away.
Banks — who recently left her own show, FABLife, to focus on her business interests — confirmed the news to Variety on Thursday night:
"There is no one else that can play Eve but me, thank you very much! I'm just joking with you, but yes, I am going to be Eve."
LOLz!!! Already sounds like Eve, right?!
Now that Banks is confirmed to be on board — she will also apparently be an executive producer of the film — speculation is aflame that Lindsay Lohan might reprise her role in the film, too!

Banks was mum about other casting choices, though, saying:
"We have not talked about casting at all so I have no idea who is going to be the young person that will be the owner of Eve. We haven't gotten to that."
To be fair, they are still in very early stages of production; the super model revealed a rough idea of when it might be broadcast for fans:
"We're looking at it as a holiday movie so hopefully holiday 2016. I'm really excited about it."
Uhh, you're not the only one, Tyra!!!
