Selena Gomez to Star in 'Raw' Indie Role Opposite James Franco, Emma Roberts
Selena Gomez is set to star in a "raw" role in indie filmmaker Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers, alongside James Franco, Vanessa Hudgens and Emma Roberts.
The film revolves around 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," 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."
Gomez's past roles have been largely PG: with a repertoire boasting of Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place, Princess Protection Program and Another Cinderella Story, working with Korine -- best known for his dark avant-garde films, Kids and Trash Humpers -- is set to be a huge departure.
