Selena Gomez joins James Franco, Emma Roberts and Vanessa Hudgens in Spring Breakers
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
While not being Justin Bieber’s girlfriend or making teen-pop music, Selena Gomez is busy trying to be a respectable actress (although any association with the Biebs is going to make that difficult). The young actress has signed on to star in the comedy SPRING BREAKERS, about a group of young college girls that rob a restaurant and of course, end up in jail where they get involved with a drug dealer. This definitely isn’t the PG Disney fare that Gomez is known for, so it should be interesting to see how she does while acting alongside adults.
Joining Gomez in the film are James Franco, Emma Roberts and Vanessa Hudgens. That makes for quite a formidable group of PG college girls. The film is set to be directed by indie helmer Harmony Korine. No word on when production will start, but with this many cast members already set, it should be sometime in early 2012.
