Singer Miley Cyrus will star in Woody Allen's Amazon TV series.

The head-spinning casting combines the 80-year-old film-maker with the 23-year-old former Disney star.

Cyrus will star alongside Elaine May in the six half-hour episodes planned to run this year.

On Instagram, Cyrus posted a painting of Allen that she said had been beside her bed for years.

Cyrus wrote that she was "looking into his eyes when I got the call to be a part of the cast".

Allen has previously voiced regrets about his first foray into streaming television.

At the Cannes Film Festival in May he called it "a catastrophic mistake".
