Selena Gomez BEEZUS Ramona Books

Selena Gomez will star as ‘Beezus’ in a film adaptation Beverly Cleary’s Ramona books, reports Vancouver Sun [Via Junior Celebs]. Producer Alison Greenspan: ‘[Cleary] was a librarian as well as a writer and had watched with some despair some adaptations of favorite books that hadn’t measured up.’

It has taken Greenspan more than four years from the time that she approached Cleary to this moment, beginning to cast and prep for shooting. The film will be shot around a Vancouver family’s home for two months.

‘Beezus’, Ramona‘s sister Beatrice, will be played by Selena ‘Celina’ Gomez.

A nationwide search is winding down on the casting of Ramona. Aquamarine director Elizabeth Allen will direct. Cleary also wrote the Henry Huggins series and Mouse and the Motorcycle series.

    aye, i also have an idea.
    LET US DO WHAT WE WANT.
    we will watch the movie if we want.
    we will critique the movie if we want.
    no selena hoemez fan will tell me what to do.
    tyvm.

    LOL. Do you realize how ignorant and immature you are? And watching the movie is just supporting her, and you don’t want to do that now don’t you?

    Another lesson: Go up child.

    well, god dammit.

    she’s going to ruin them.

    that’s one movie i’m not wasting $20 on seeing.

  • spread the love

    that’s what i mean, she has a babyface so she could pass as a little girl but the audience would still know that she’s 16/17… i really hope she doesn’t end up as one of those people who plays a teenager when she’s 30! beezus is supposed to be nine years old, maybe they’ll age her up?

    you guys are all dumb. the one thing selena is actually really good at is acting. stop being jealous that she dated nick jonas and bitching about this.

    and beezus is like 6 years older than ramona, maybe its starting at the end of the ramona series.

    What?! Why must they make more movies based on books? Does no one even have creativity anymore? Anyways, I love reading the Ramona books since I was little, they’re really funny and heart warming. But likes others said, Beezus was about 12, yes a 5th (or was it 6th?) grader in the beginning and they are going to cast her? She doesn’t even really look like Beezus according to the descriptions nd illustrations. She has brown hair and she’s pretty plain looking…at least they got the skinny part down (lol).

    ———————
    that supposed date is what sounds fake to me,and the pics of it that came out turned out to be fake garbage so it’s doubtful that there was a movie date if that’s what you’re talking about. And the pics of them at a restaurant was supposedly the first that they had seen each other in awhile and it was his whole family and other friends also there,because she called him or texted that day just to say hi and they were all in texas at the same time,well that’s what the story about that was.

  • mojo

    Does anyone remember the old Ramona tv show? I used to watch the reruns of it when I was little. So is this new thing a Ramona movie or a Beezus movie ?

  • Sarah

    Selena is so beautiful……how can people say shes ugly. I mean….shes definitly not ugly at all.

    I used to read these books all the time when I was little and I’m 90% sure that Beezus was no older than 12…

    It might not actually be her because the article said Celina Gomez will be playing Beatrice but becuase no one knows a Celina Gomaz they think it Selena. For all we know it could be another actor.

    well you guys don’t know how the adaptation is going to be played out. just because they are making a movie out of the book doesn’t mean it will be exactly like the book. im pretty sure beezus is maybe 13/14 by the time this book was written, so its not to off. selena looks younger then her age to begin with.

    The article actually says Celina Gomez will play Beatrice not Selena Gomez. Though most people assume it is a typo, it could very well be another actor that we don’t know of yet.
