The 20-year-old actress, who debuted a sexy new side in her recent film Spring Breakers, is going to an even darker place for her upcoming drama Rudderless.
“It’s the parents’ perspective of being the parents of a murderer, a mass murder like Sandy Hook,” Gomez’s Rudderless costarJamie Chung told us of the film at the premiere of The Hangover Part III, which Chung also stars in.
“You never get to hear the parents’ perspective of dealing with the hurt and the betrayal and the anger and the love,” Chung continued. “It’s a really interesting angle on a story like that. It’s pretty dark but it’s kind of beautiful in a way.”
Chung says Gomez’s performance is a departure from her Disney days. “The thing is, she’s so talented, you’re really going to see a different side,” she said. “It’s going to be a bit more fragile. I think it’s a side you’ve never seen of her. It’s quite fantastic.”
“It’s dark,” Chung added, “But she’s always so lovely.”
Rudderless also stars Felicity Huffman, Laurence Fishburne and Star Trek‘s Anton Yelchin. The film is dreicted by William H. Macy.Follow @Infocelebrity on Twitter!
