Selena Gomez Spring Breakers

After Emma Roberts backed out of ‘Spring Breakers,’ Selena Gomez’s good friend and ‘Pretty Little Liars’ star, Ashley Benson, was cast. How fun for them!

Selena Gomez‘s upcoming indie film with James Franco and Vanessa Hudgens is also going to star her friend, Ashley Benson, reports our sister site, Deadline Hollywood.

“Deadline has learned Pretty Little Liars co-star Ashley Benson just booked a role,” Nikki Finke says. “But two weeks ago Emma Roberts fell out of the movie. So with a February 12 starting date in Florida, Spring Breakers is still looking for its fourth girl.”

Written by Harmony Korine, Spring Breakers is about four college girls who rob a restaurant in order to get money for their trip to the beach with “a rapping drug and arms dealer who bails them out of jail and entices them to kill his arch-rival,” who would be played by James.

Interestingly enough, Ashley is currently dating Ryan Good, who used to be Selena’s boyfriend Justin Bieber‘s swag coach. The four of them have hung out a bunch recently, so we wonder if Selena, 19, played a role in helping Ashley get cast in the film.

Regardless, we bet Justin and Ryan will be down in Florida a bunch together when their girls are shooting the movie! Double date photos — we can’t wait!

Who do YOU think should play the fourth girl in Spring Breakers?
