We cannot wait to see Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens in their upcoming indie flick, Spring Breakers.
Both have already told us just how wild they get in the Harmony Korine-directed film, which centers around three college students (Gomez, Hudgens and Pretty Little Liars’ Ashley Benson) who rob a restaurant in order to pay for their spring break vacation.
James Franco, who plays a drug dealer who bails them out, says the movie will go far to help Gomez, 19, break free from the rigid confines of being a Disney darling…
“I thought Harmony was so smart to cast her, Vanessa and Ashley because it seemed like they were so hungry for some deeper kind of material, hungry for indie material,” Franco, 34, told me at last night’s opening of Rebel, a group art show inspired by James Dean’s classic movie, Rebel Without a Cause, for L.A.’s The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA). “They really gave their all when they were acting,” he continued. “You’ve got great performances.”
Franco laughed, “They other thing that [Korine] got was this crazy fusion of high pop and like dirty indie sensibilities. I think that is going to be very powerful.”
