After a brief foray into the music world, Selena Gomez is resuming her role as actress extraordinaire. The Wizards of Waverly Place star will be gracing the silver screen in the upcoming movie Spring Breakers. Gomez is excited to star in a movie that she predicts will be “raw and more about acting.”
Spring Breakers follows four college girls who, in their desperation for vacation money, decide to rob a restaurant. A drug dealer bails the women out of of the clink with the stipulation that they will kill his rival.
James Franco, Emma Roberts and Vanessa Hudgens will be starring alongside Selena Gomez. Spring Breakers is scheduled to begin filming in early 2012. It will be interesting to see whether Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens are finally able to break out of their safe Disney havens. The actresses will need to step it up, for they will be playing characters far more complicated than those they have played in the past.
