Selena Gomez takes raw role
Selena Gomez has signed on to star in indie filmmaker Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers, starring opposite James Franco, Vanessa Hudgens and Emma Roberts.

The film centers on a group of female college students who rob a restaurant in order to fund their Spring Break vacation, eventually landing in jail and becoming involved with a drug dealer.

"It's a different character than I have ever played before," Selena Gomez told MTV. "It's a different kind of vibe than people are used to seeing me in. It's going to be raw and more about acting."

No production date has been set.
