Selena Gomez is taking more acting credits to her lengthy list of upcoming projects, as she’s ready to star in a new Petra Collins film, executive produced by Drake. Let’s get into it.
Fresh off the heels of her role in the upcoming comedy series Only Murders In The Building, Selena Gomez is switching gears as Deadline just announced her role in a Petra Collins psychological-thriller called ‘Spiral.’
According to the outlet, Picturestart studios will produce the film with Drake set to executive produce, and Selena’s good friend and renowned photographer Petra Collins will be directing. The story is based around a former social media influencer, played by Selena, whose addiction to social media causes her body to fall apart… anyone else officially intrigued?
Also in the producer seat, Future the Prince, aka Adel Nur, who exec produces HBO’s Euphoria with Drake, has signed on, and based on the stellar cast AND crew already signed on to bring the film to life, I think it’s safe to assume we’re in good hands here. The project will mark Petra’s directorial debut, as she’s more notably famous for her photography, as well as her starring role as Agnyss in the popular Amazon series Transparent.
As many fans know, Petra and Selena go way back and have a history of making magic happen having directed both Selena’s “Fetish” and “Bad Liar” music videos, as well as her short horror film A Love Story.
Petra also opened up to Vanity Fair back in 2018 about her infatuation with all things horror, saying, “I love The Exorcist and the things that come from inside you.”
She added, “The things that are a little more subtle, and things that you deal with from inwards, and I feel like it’s something Selena and I both love talking about… that topic is sort of dear to us.”
Fans of Selena and Petra together and separately are excited about the upcoming project and have been chiming in via social media.
One user tweeted, “Petra Collins directing a movie with the executive producing of Euphoria and Selena Gomez and drake on board?? Yeah this movie is going to epic”. At the same time, another fan said, “Patiently waiting for Selena, Aubrey or Petra to acknowledge the collapse that has just been revealed to us.”
Trust me, I know this was a lot to take in, but the minor panic attack that just resulted from this news will undoubtedly be worth the wait, so get excited, Selenators!
