Selena Gomez is teaming up with two comedy legends…

Ordered to series in January, the comedy created and written by Martin and John Hoffman revolves around three strangers who share an obsession with true crime who suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one.

Gomez will play the third stranger alongside Short and Martin.

In addition to her co-starring role, Gomez will also executive produce the series alongside Martin, Hoffman, Short, This Is Uscreator Dan Fogelman and Jess Rosenthal. It marks Gomez’s latest executive-producing gig following Netflix‘s 13 Reasons Why and the documentary Living Undocumented.

Only Murders in the Building is Gomez’s latest acting role following her roles in Woody Allen’s A Rainy Day in New York and The Dead Don’t Die. Her other film credits include Spring Breakers, The Big Short, Monte Carlo and Fundamentals of Caring.

Gomez will next appear on HBO Max in her new cooking-while-quarantined series Selena + Chef, which will begin streaming later this month.

Gomez to Star in the Indie Film “The Revised Fundamentals Of Caregiving”

Selena Gomez has set her sights on her next film role…

The 22-year-old half-Mexican American actress and singer has landed the female lead opposite Paul Rudd in The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving, directed by Emmy winner Rob Burnett.

Rudd will star in the indie drama as Ben, a caregiver looking after a frustrated teenager named Trevor who is in the advanced stages of Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Gomez will portray Dot, a sassy young woman who hitches a ride with the pair during a road trip, and whose forwardness and lack of embarrassment about Trevor’s condition causes him to develop a crush on her.

Burnett, the veteran exec producer of The Late Show with David Letterman, adapted the script from Jonathan Evison’s 2013 novel of the same name.

Soon-to-be co-stars Gomez and Rudd were snapped Sunday night after the Golden Globes with writer/actor Justin Theroux, when a photo of the trio posted to Gomez’s Instagram garnered 1.1 million likes.

Filming on The Revised Fundamentals Of Caregiving begins January 22 in Atlanta.

It’s the latest indie film for Gomez, whose big screen credits include Sony’s 2012 animation hit Hotel Transylvania. A role in Harmony Korine’s racy Spring Breakers added street cred to her resume, and she was most recently seen in William H. Macy’s directorial debut Rudderless, which premiered last year at the Sundance Film Festival.

Gomez next reprises her voice role in Sony’s animated sequel Hotel Transylvania 2 opposite Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg. Offscreen, the global star who has over 107 million social media followers recently signed with Interscope Records after a long run with Disney’s Hollywood Records.

The 21-year-old former Disney Channel star and pop artist has exited as a client of Creative Artists Agency (CAA) and has signed with William Morris Endeavor (WME).

Selena Gomez

The former Wizards of Waverly Place star has also signed with Brillstein Entertainment Partners as she restructures her team and transitions from a teen star to search out more adult projects.

Last year Gomez made a bold leap playing a partying coed in Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers.

Gomez has a huge social media following, with 57.9M Facebook fans and 19.3M Twitter followers.

She’ll next be seen in William H. Macy’s directorial debut, Rudderless, which premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival.

“Blue Jasmine,” Starring Louis C.K., Shines Bright Like a Diamond in Limited Release

Louis C.K. has no reason to feel blue about the box office performance of his latest project…

The 45-year-old Mexican American stars in Woody Allen’s ensemble drama Blue Jasmine, which sparkled like a diamond at the box office this weekend.

Louis C.K. in Blue Jasmine

The film, which co-stars Alec Baldwin, Cate Blanchett and Bobby Cannavale, grossed nearly $603,000 in limited release, outperforming the performance of Allen’s last film Midnight in Paris (a $99,834 debut average in six theaters), which was the director’s best-grossing film to date.

Blue Jasmine, released by Sony Pictures Classics, opened in six theaters, averaging $102,128, placing the film atop the year’s specialty debuts.

“It certainly belies the myth opening,” said SPC’s Michael Barker about debuting against the summer blockbusters like The Wolverine. “When we first screened the film I remember we heard that people said, ‘Why aren’t you waiting until the fall?’ Our response was that a good serious film will be a good breath of fresh air.”

Blue Jasmine edges out Selena Gomez’s Spring Breakers in the averages game so far in 2013.

Louis C.K. portrays Al in the film, which centers on Blanchett’s New York socialite character who moves into her sister’s modest apartment in San Francisco to try to pull herself back together after her life falls apart, including her marriage to wealthy businessman Hal (Baldwin).

Gomez Releases Her Official “Come and Get It” Music Video

Selena Gomez is giving you’re the chance to come and get it online…

Following performances of the song at the MTV Movie Awards and Radio Disney Music Awards, the 20-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress has released the official music video for her latest single “Come and Get It.”

Selena Gomez

In contrast to the Eastern-inspired theme she had in her appearances at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, Dancing with the Stars and Radio Disney Music Awards, Gomez went for a different, tribal feel in the five-minute clip instead.

Despite dropping the Bindi accessory from her ensemble, Gomez is still wild-haired and bare-footed in the clip.

But Gomez kept her flowing dress for the music video, opening the stunning visuals with a black transparent outfit as she lies on the rich blue-green field. Similar to her live performances, she is joined by her crew of back-up dancers as she gyrates in her deep red costume. She then changes into an off-white multi-layered attire that looks stunning against the nature backdrop.

“Come and Get It” ushers in the forthcoming arrival of Gomez’s new album this summer, for which the Spring Breakers star is set to go on a 50-city worldwide tour to promote it.

Gomez Dazzles During Her MTV Movie Awards Performance of “Come and Get It”

Forget Hollywood! Selena Gomez is a Bollywood dream…

The 20-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress and former Disney Channel star channeled a sexy version of Aladdin’s Princess Jasmine when she performed her brand new single “Come and Get It” on Sunday at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.

Selena Gomez

Gomez, who debuted the first single from her upcoming album earlier than planned last weekend, dressed in a deep red Bollywood-inspired outfit and gave viewers a taste of Eastern music and dance. Wild-haired and bare-footed, the Spring Breakers star’s performance was a mash up of Arabic, Indian and Thai dancing.

Despite being nervous about performing “Come and Get It” live for the first time, as Gomez revealed during the rehearsals, she managed to shine bright during her song-and-dance number.

Earlier this month, Jason Evigan, who collaborated on Gomez’s new material, said: “I think it’s going to take her to the next level… She’s got some really cool like ethnic influence, kind of tribally dance drums and stuff like that. I kind of feel she’s going to be like a new J.Lo kind of thing.”

Gomez to Star in “Rudderless” Film

Selena Gomez is going rudderless for her next project…

The Spring Breakers’ co-stars include Anton Yelchin, Laurence Fishburne and Billy Crudup.
