In the sequel, Banks' character Eve is all grown up, and this time, she's ready to help a young woman played by Francia Raisa "learn to live and love again," according to a press release. "Eve herself will experience the ups and downs of real life in a fun, edgy, modern Christmas movie."
The movie will be part of the Freeform (formerly ABC Family) “25 Days of Christmas” programming block later this year.
Banks is hosting “America’s Got Talent” but that show is still playing pre-taped segments. I presume she will finish “Life Size 2” before she returns to Los Angeles for the live shows next month.
The original movie aired on ABC in 2000. Banks, now 44, was 27 at the time.
