Spring Breakers Movie: Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson Will Party Hard
Selena Gomez all grown up
Spring Breakers is the movie that stars: Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens, Rachel Korine, Heather Morris and even James Franco. There haven’t been any previews released yet, but there are plenty of production pictures due to the hype behind this movie.
Magic Mike who? Casting directors are keeping up by giving the 18+ generation movies starring celebrities they are more familiar with. Stars like Selena Gomez and Channing Tatum take on roles of strippers or spring breakers and will probably bring a lot of money in the box office. As a marketing major, makes me wonder why I even go to class. You can scroll down for more behind the scenes pictures.
So what’s the movie about?
According to Daily Mail:
The film, which also stars James Franco as a drug dealer, is a far cry from Selena Gomez’s squeaky clean image in Wizards of Waverly Place and the racy role represents a bold move for the 19-year old actress.
So Selena, expanding your acting resume means going from Disney show witch to robbing a restaurant, drinking, doing drugs, to go on spring break? Wow. Sounds pretty consistent with most other young Disney actresses at your age, in fact, its better than most since this was staged professionally. Text your costar Vanessa Hudgens about this trend.
When asked what the movie would be rated: Vanessa and Ashley said,
V: If not NC17 *Laughs*
May be better than you think
I can’t help but to picture this film being a mesh of two of my personal favorites– Superbad and Pineapple Express. Only rather than McLovin and Jonah Hill, you get Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens and that other girl who nobody knows yet parading in bikinis. Also, James Franco plays Kevin Federline’s twin and drug dealer.
Director Harmony Korine has the recipe for a college hit. Apparently reviews from the Canes film festival, after seeing a few minute preview, were very positive. Imagine if this movie actually turned out to have a decent plot? Ashley Benson known for her role in Pretty Little Liars certainly has potential.
So, plan on seeing this movie? Do you think Selena Gomez will benefit from this kind of role or will she alienate the moms and young girls who have followed her for the past 5 or so years?
