Actress Selena Gomez has stepped in to replace Miley Cyrus in the upcoming Sony Pictures Animation project Hotel Transylvania.

Selena Gomez will voice Mavis, the daughter of Adam Sandler's Dracula, in Hotel Transylvania. The news of Miley Cyrus' departure broke earlier this morning, and Adam Sandler's rep confirmed this afternoon that Selena Gomez has signed on. It is said that Miley Cyrus dropped out so she could take more time to figure out her own career path in feature films.
