It looks like Selena Gomez will be spring breaking in Austin this March…
The 20-year-old half-Mexican American actress/singer’s highly anticipated Spring Breakers will have its United States premiere at the SXSW Film Conference and Festival in Austin, taking place March 8-16.
Directed by Harmony Korine, Spring Breakers stars Gomez as one of four college girls who end up in jail after robbing a restaurant in order to fund their spring break vacation, only to find themselves bailed out by a drug and arms dealer who wants them to do a little dirty work.
In addition to Gomez, the film stars Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and James Franco.
Meanwhile, Uruguayan director/screenwriter Fede Álvarez’s Evil Dead remake will have its world premiere at the festival.
Based on the cult classic from director Sam Raimi, the film centers on five friends, holed up in a remote cabin, who discover a Book of the Dead that unwittingly summons up dormant demons, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left to fight for survival.
The film stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas and Elizabeth Blackmore.
