Selena Gomez was just cast in Woody Allen’s next film! The actress joins an already stellar young cast for the untitled new project. Who’s she going to play?
Woody Allen‘s next film is going to be great, courtesy of Selena Gomez! The actress and singer, 25, was just cast in the legendary filmmaker’s new project for Amazon, reports our sister site Deadline. Timothée Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name) and Elle Fanning (The Beguiled) have also been cast in the mysterious film. Woody is notoriously secretive about his projects, and never lets a detail about the feature slip until he decides the time’s right. At the moment, it’s unknown who Selena, Timothée, and Elle are playing. There isn’t even a logline available!
So basically, we’re going into the film cold. Judging on the casting, though, it should be fabulous. We’ve been waiting to see Selena back onscreen again. Her music career has skyrocketed, but we do miss the days when we could flip on the TV and watch her shine! The last film we saw her in was Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising in 2016, so this is a welcome followup to that small role. Selena’s following in another Disney alum’s footsteps by taking this role. Miley Cyrus, 23, starred in Woody’s 2016 Amazon series Crisis in Six Scenes! She played a hippie, Lennie, in the six episode series about the turbulent 1960s. Like Selena, it was nice to see Miley return to her acting roots in the midst of an epic music career.
Selena’s having her best year yet. After taking a mental health break in fall 2016, she bounced back healthy, happy, and better than ever. She’s releasing new music right now, and it’s all awesome! Her strange, surreal videos for “Fetish” and “Bad Liar” are elevated beyond what she usually puts out. She’s doing photoshoots left and right, posing for Coach, and is happily in love with boyfriend The Weeknd. Here’s to more success!
