Tyra Banks is in Atlanta now shooting a sequel to her 2000 film "Life Size" where she plays a Barbie-like doll who comes to life.

The original "Life Size" starred a then 13-year-old Lindsey Lohan. Will she return? Banks told Steve Harvey before production she had talked to Lohan about being in the film, but there has been no confirmation that the now 32-year-old actress will actually show up.

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."

Raisa, who stars in Freeform's "Grown-ish," recently donated a kidney to her friend Selena Gomez.

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.
