SELENA GOMEZ TALKS “SPRINGBREAKERS”

Earlier this month it was reported that Selena Gomez along with Vanessa Hudgens, James Franco and Emma Roberts had signed on to a new Harmony Korine project entitled “Springbreakers”. MTV managed to get a few words from Gomez with regards to the project. Gomez told reporters:

The beginning of next year I will be starting my new movie called ‘Spring Breakers’, I’m really, really excited about it. It’s a different character than I have ever played before.  It’s a different kind of vibe I think than people are used to seeing me in. What you’re going to see is more raw, I think. It’s going to be raw and more about acting.

The film is set to shoot next year during spring break with Korine writing and directing. Rachel Korine is also set to star.
