Selena Gomez, the star of Disney Channel’s Wizards of Waverly Place, has signed on to star in the upcoming comedy Monte Carlo, according to Variety.com. Gomez will play the youngest of three American women who pose as wealthy tourists in Monaco. The film is loosely based on the Jules Bass novel Headhunters, and is being produced by Nicole Kidman, who may play a supporting character. Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester is also reportedly in talks for a key role.
Monte Carlo is being directed by Thomas Bezucha (The Family Stone), and will begin filming this May in Monaco, Budapest, and Paris.
