The Disney Star will be partying, drinking, and getting crazy with her girlfriends, she told US Weekly. In one scene, the coeds even wind up robbing a restaurant as a means of funding the trip. Although the edgy part is a far-cry from her off-screen persona, Gomez said she was up for the challenge and embraced the role. Viewers should keep in mind that movie-set jails are quite different from what celebrity female arrestees like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan experienced when they were booked into the Lynwood Jail, the Los Angeles County women’s jail.
As far as having concerns about her younger, tween-fans sneaking into the film, Gomez said she’s not worried. The film, written by Harmony Korine, will be released as independent, she said. It will be shown globally at a number of film festivals and will be less-easy to access than films released to main-stream theaters.
Production for the film is set to begin in the early part of this year. No word as to if a bail bondsman will be used by the Gomez character.
Gomez first got her start in 1992 when she was cast to play Gianna in Barney & Friends. Since that time she has stared in Spy Kids, 3-D: Game Over; the 1996 made for TV movie Brain Zapped; and has played varying roles in series such as Hannah Montana and Wizards of Waverly Place. She has starred in a number of Disney Channel Original Movies and currently has a recording contract with Hollywood Records. Her most recent single, Love You Like A Love Song is ranked number 23 on the The Billboard Top 40.
