Selena Gomez In ‘The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving’
In Revised Fundamentals, Selena will play sassy 17-year-old Dot, according to Deadline.com. Paul will play opposite her as Ben, a caregiver tending to a frustrated teenager named Trevor who is suffering from muscular dystrophy.
After hitching a ride with Ben and Trevor, Dot’s forwardness and lack of embarrassment about Trevor’s condition become apparent and cause him to develop a crush on her.
What an exciting and different kind of role for Selena!
A Brand New Year
Selena’s major success in her career could not be coming at a more perfect time, as 2014 was filled with more than a little emotional turmoil, some of which she is still trying to deal with.
After a devastating breakup from Justin Bieber, the star has struggled to move on from her former boyfriend, even feeling like she lost her best friend when they ended their relationship. But now it seems, with a new movie– and what looks like a new guy!– Selena might be able to move on for good!
Filming for the new film begins on Jan. 22 in Atlanta, and no doubt some space from Los Angeles–and Justin– could do her some good!
