The story follows a teen, Ric, and his crush, Nina, as they set out on a rock-themed journey. Gomez is set to play Nina, and the Naked Brothers Band’s Nat Wolff will play Ric. Also joining the cast are “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” actor Austin Stowell as Nina’s bad boy beau, Dylan McDermott and Cary Elwes, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The story is based on the 2000 novel “While I’m Dead … Feed the Dog,” by Ric Browde. Tim Garrick will write and direct the film, slated to shoot in Los Angeles.
The film is the latest edgier flick to hit Gomez’s docket. She’s finished up work on “Spring Breakers,” and is also set to appear with Eli Roth in “Aftershock” and the Ethan Hawke thriller, “Getaway.” Despite transitioning to more mature content, she is still keeping her younger fanbase in mind, co-starring with Adam Sandler in the vampire-themed animated flick, “Hotel Transylvania.”
Additionally, she is hard at work on her 2013 album release and has just added another impressive achievement to her growing list: a Video Music Awards nomination. She’s up for Best Female Video for her trippy, surreal “Love You Like a Love Song” video. She’ll face off against Katy Perry, Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna when the show goes live on September 6 at 8 p.m. ET/PT from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
