It seems that the Disney girls have each other’s backs. Miley Cyrus will no longer be able to voice a part in Adam Sandler’s animated vampire flick, “Hotel Transylvania,” and it seems that Selena Gomez has stepped up to the plate to fill in for her.
A rep for Sandler told E! News that the actress will play the part of Mavis, the vampire daughter of Dracula (Sandler). Dracula, who runs a resort of all the creepy folks in the world, gets worried when his teen daughter falls for a boy. E! reports that “Saturday Night Live” star Andy Samberg, singer and “The Voice” judge Cee Lo Green and Sandler’s pal Kevin James also have sunk their teeth into roles in the film, expected to drop in September.
Back in November, an image of Mavis floating around showed the teen vamp with short black hair, sporting a little black dress with black-and-red striped tights. She rocks the look with red high-top sneakers.
Before she voices Mavis, Gomez will be on set for the much-more-mature “Spring Breakers,” which follows a group of college girls who rob a restaurant to pay for their spring break. When they land in jail, a drug and arms dealer bails them out, and they quickly become entangled with him. “I’m really, really excited about it,” Gomez said about the Harmony Korine-directed film.
“We have to say there’s a lot to be excited about. It’s a different character than I have ever played before,” she added. “It’s a different kind of vibe, I think, than people are used to seeing me in. What you’re going to see is more raw, I think. It’s going to be raw and more about acting.”
Gomez will produce and most likely star in the big-screen adaptation of the Jandy Nelson novel “The Sky Is Everywhere.” She’s also rumored to be attached to a film called “Hot Mess.”
