Selena Gomez will be behaving badly in August…
Vertical Entertainment has acquired the U.S. distribution rights to Behaving Badly, which stars the 21-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress and former Disney Channel star.
Directed by Tim Garrick, the comedy centers on a guy who’s so smitten that he makes a bet with a mobster’s son.
Nat Wolff stars as the guy trying to land the woman of his dreams (portrayed by Gomez). Along the way he deals with his best friend’s randy mom (Elisabeth Shue), his drug-abusing boss (Dylan McDermott), a perverted principal (Patrick Warburton), a priest with a secret (Jason Lee), a sultry defense attorney (Heather Graham), and a patron saint who dispenses cryptic advice (Mary-Louise Parker).
Cary Elwes and Gary Busey also co-star in the film, which was written Garrick and Scott Russell based on Ric Browde’s book While I’m Dead … Feed The Dog.
Vertical Entertainment plans to release Behaving Badly in U.S. theaters in August.
