Tyra Banks Just Confirmed a Coyote Ugly Reboot Is in the Works

Tyra Banks told Kelly Clarkson on Wednesday that she and actress Maria Bello are talking about making a Coyote Ugly sequel or reboot, and we are so ready for all the dance numbers!

Twenty years after the original, fans might be getting a Coyote Ugly sequel.


Tyra Banks, who starred as Zoe in the New York-set film from 2000, revealed that she's been in talks for a Coyote Ugly 2 film or a full-on TV series reboot.


Banks shared the news on The Kelly Clarkson Show on Wednesday, Oct. 7, saying,

"I literally was supposed to be on a conference call today about bringing Coyote Ugly back."


The Dancing With the Stars host and executive producer explained that she's planning to chat with actress Maria Bello, who portrayed Lil, about the details.

"We were supposed to be on a call today, and I'm talking to you and I can't talk to them," Banks said. "Yes, we are talking about trying to do Coyote Ugly 2 or a series." 

The 46-year-old reflected on how she landed the job to begin with, by recalling how she aced her audition. 

The original movie centered on Violet Sanford (Piper Perabo), who moved to New York to pursue singing and started working at the bar, Coyote Ugly, to make some money. The real Coyote Ugly Saloon was founded in NYC in 1993 by Liliana "Lil" Lovell.

Coyote Ugly has made $113 million at the box office.
