Supermodel Tyra Banks has written a new book. â€œModellandâ€ is the story of four girls who decide they want to be models and enter a modeling school.Â â€œModellandâ€ is about the girls who win the beauty competitions, but also about those who are left out.Â Tyra said that the idea of the book came to her while she was driving down the FDR, New York, one day. She actually did not think of it as a book, but rather as the first book in a series.

AP reports that the model-entrepreneur has already been approached by a major Hollywood producer about turning the book into a movie. “I would love to open up the `Modelland’ casting to the world. I’m looking for an Everygirl to possibly play one of the characters in the story,” Tyra said.
After all, it is what Banks studied in school (who knew?). She said, “That’s what I was going to go to college for… I’ve done the TV thing and will continue to do so, but the idea of films is pretty amazing.”
