Selena Gomez (“Wizards of Waverly Place”) has been cast in one of three lead roles in Tom Bezucha’s comedy Monte Carlo, while a possible deal is in the works for “Gossip Girl’s” Leighton Meester as well.
Nicole Kidman is producing the Fox 2000 project with Denise Di Novi and Alison Greenspan. Kidman may also play a supporting role.
Bezucha (The Family Stone) is set to begin shooting this May in Monaco, Budapest and Paris.
Bezucha co-wrote the original script with Maria Maggenti, adapting Jules Bass’ novel “Headhunters,” about a group of American women who ditch a disappointing no-frills holiday in Paris and pose as wealthy women vacationing in Monaco. Bezucha and April Blair have done a rewrite which puts a younger spin on the story, with two of the characters in college and one just out of high school.
Gomez also stars in Fox 2000’s upcoming Ramona and Beezus.
