Selena Gomez has said she wants to branch out into more adult roles, which is one reasons the film adaptation of the novel ’13 Reasons Why’ would be a perfect fit for the maturing actress!

We’re used to seeing Selena Gomez as a cheerful, funny teen without a care in the world on the Disney Channel. However, the 19-year-old actress is ready to step up her game and join the big leagues — and she’ll do just that in the film adaptation of the dramatic novel, 13 Reasons Why.

Written by Jay Asher, 13 Reason Why is a story about a teenager named Hannah who takes her own life, but before she does so, leaves several tapes for her friend, Clay, explaining the 13 reasons why she committed suicide. Clay realizes he’s one of the reasons and relives all of his moments with Hannah.

While it’s hard to imagine Selena in such a serious role, we have no doubts the talented actress can pull it off.

Interestingly enough, Selena attended the premiere of The Thing this week in Los Angeles, which was produced by the same production company that acquired 13 Reasons Why, Strike Entertainment. Although the film doesn’t have a director officially attached to it yet, judging from her interactions with Eli Roth at the premiere…he might be in the mix!

Do YOU think Selena will have a successful career in dramatic films?
