Selena Gomez is hitting the road ... but not for a concert tour.
The actress-singer is going indie as she joins the cast of the romantic road comedy, "Parental Guidance Suggested," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Based on Ric Browde's quirky coming-of-age novel, "While I'm Dead ... Feed the Dog" (yeah, we'd change the title, too), "Parental Guidance Suggested" follows 16-year-old Ric (Nat Wolff) and his crush, Nina (Gomez), as they embark on a rock n' roll odyssey that will almost definitely involve self-discovery and kissing.
News of the project began leaking out this week as several cast members have been tweeting about their involvement. The cast also includes Dylan McDermott and Cary Elwes (as the fathers of the two teens, we're assuming) as well as Austin Stowell ("The Secret Life of the American Teenager") as Gomez's overbearing boyfriend (whom she'll probably eventually dump for Wolff).
Selena Gomez has certainly been keeping busy lately, whether her thespian-ing involves singing or not. She recently appeared in "Monte Carlo," the vacation comedy that was a lot cuter than it deserved to be, and just wrapped Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers." She'll next be seen (heard) as the voice of Mavis in "Hotel Transylvania," opening Sept. 28.
"Parental Guidance Suggested" is set to be adapted and directed by Tim Garrick. Production will commence this fall in Los Angeles.
