Teen pop star Selena Gomez has signed on to star in Spring Breakers, a new movie by avant-garde filmmaker Harmony Korine, the man behind pictures such as Gummo, Julien Donkey-Boy and Trash Humpers. Gomez will appear in the movie alongside James Franco, Vanessa Hudgens and Emma Roberts as a college girl who robs a restaurant with a group of friends in order to fund a spring break vacation.

“It’s a different character than I have ever played before,” Gomez told MTV News. “It’s a different kind of vibe, I think, than people are used to seeing me in. What you’re going to see is more raw, I think. It’s going to be raw and more about acting.”

Gomez and Korine are rather strange bedfellows. While Gomez’s acting career has been focused on kid-friendly fare such as the Disney Channel series Wizards of Waverly Place and TV movies like Another Cinderella Story and Princess Protection Program, Korine has made his name with films featuring scenes with kids hunting feral cats, a creepy dad dancing to banjo music in a gas mask and, well, trash-humping.
