Ever think Alex Russo would be robbing restaurants, doing drugs, getting into jail, and befriending arms dealers? If you looked hard enough, there were clues left all over Wizards of Waverly Place. I mean, she was scamming people left and right in that show.
Well, now Wizards actress Selena Gomez stars in Harmony Korine’s scandalous new Spring Break movie, Spring Breakers.
Our friends over at Movie Fanatic have the first Spring Breakers trailer, so click the link to check it out. The film follows four girls, including Gomez and High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens, who steal money in order to fund their trip to Florida for Spring Break.
As you can guess, things only get harrier from there. James Franco plays a thugged-out drug-and-arms dealer who solicits the girls’ help.
NOTE: Some Beliebers might say Gomez has already gone bad, seeing as she may have been holding hands this week with Luke Bracey.
Selena Gomez is adding the title of executive producer to her resume.
Justin Bieber’s gal is reuniting with herWizards of Waverly Place pals for a one-off reunion special, which will air on Disney early next year.
The 20-year-old actress-singer will star in the movie while also doing producing work behind the camera.
“I think she’ll be great because she’s great at seeing the whole picture,” Gomez’s Wizardsmom Maria Canals-Barrera told us at last night’s Los Angeles premiere of Batman Liveabout Gomez producing the flick. “She’s not just focused on her part. She’s the kind of actor that can see the whole story.
“I think she’ll take it seriously like she does,” she continued. “I think it’s going to be great, I really do. I’m very excited about it.”
The movie special, which will follow Gomez’s Wizards fam on a trip to Tuscany, is set to start production next month in L.A. Costars Jake T. Austin, Jennifer Stone, David DeLuise and Gregg Sulkin will also return.
Canals-Barrera says she’s most looking forward to getting to reunite with Gomez for the flick.
“She’s so sweet and talented and easy to work with,” she gushed. “She’s so good that whatever stuff we’d have to do together, it was so satisfying because she’s so good. She’s so talented.”
