Selena Gomez Sky Is Everywhere ROLE

selenagomezinstyle-stunning


Selena Gomez and her production company July Moon has optioned the Jandy Nelson novel Sky Is Everywhere, reports Deadline. Selena will develop the book as a star vehicle for the screen. She will play 17-year old Lennie Walker,

..a bookworm and band geek who plays clarinet, & lives in the shadow of her extroverted older sister, Bailey. When Bailey dies suddenly, her younger sibling is left to take center stage and balance not one boy but two.

One is his sister’s grieving boyfriend & the other a musically inclined transplant from Paris. Her whole world threatens to collapse all over again as she tries to juggle both guys.

    Ahh, I don’t think the plot’s too good for a movie.

    DUHFUQ?

  • drinkmypoison

    I’m sure she’ll be ok with the part but I hope she doesn’t sing in this movie…or put a single out for the movie…

  • drinkmypoison

    Her face looks pretty in this picture but her whole body looks so unrealistic lol.

    What kind of a bitchy sister would steal her dead sisters boyfriend right after she dies?

  • kardashian

    And selena picks the worst movies to be apart of there always so cheesy etc. Ramona and beezus, Monte Carlo, that tv movie she did with Demi.
    Her movies will always flop if she doesn’t pick better movies to be apart of. Picking the scripts / type of movies is just as important as the acting itself.
    When will she realize this ?

    her arms look way too brolic to be realistic.

    I think Selena has some talent for sure, and no doubt deserves all the success she’s received, however her acting skills are limited. She pretty much plays the same character with the same sort of personality in everything just going through different stuff. It makes things a little dull, I don’t want to see Alex Russo everytime she’s in a film

  • UlitmateAnon

    Why cant she just go away? She already cant sing and her albums both flopped hard as fuck. Kidz bop sold more than her and her acting skills are bout as good as a piece of celry like c’mon

  • exoticmist

    I feel that she’ll do really well in this role, but it’s nothing new or different, not a risk. She needs to take on some more indie roles to have the movie career she’s capable of having.

    This synopsis sounds ridiculous. Do young girls who have a teenage sister that dies suddenly, often start juggling boys (one of which is the mentioned sister’s boyfriend) rather than grieving?? LAME.

    Thats what I thought but I dont liknk they will have Lennie (selena) would be going after her diceased sisters boyfriend. The french dude yes, but the mourning boyfriend, no. Maybe she’s comforting him as he is with her, but probably Bailey was the only person that gave him happiness in his life, now he doesnt know what to do with himself and tries to hold on closest thing that resembles his girlfriend…

    But there are many ways you could play this plot out

    oopsie this is not a miley post, so you fail bitch!

  • gorgeousselena

    and too bad selena is slaying and she have so many upcoming projects! 13 reasons why, spring breakers, hot mess, now this new movie, her perfume, new music! woowww so glad that she will continue rocking this year yuhuuu! queen selena for ever the best! and so sad that miley fade, and is totally over just an irrelevant attention whore living in the irrelevant land lol

  • gorgeousselena

    so excited for this! seriously cant wait for all her upcoming projects ;D btw that pic is flawless she looks drop dead gorgeous wowww love it<3

  • BrokenArrow

    Why she keeps choosing that kind of movies?… Or she just want to movies to make or something?

  • BrokenArrow

    That awkward moment when Claudia calls Miley irrelevant yet she’s the first person who is bringing her into this. Pathetic.

  • Can’tBeTammed

    I don’t like her hair here

  • BrokenArrow

    that’s a shame, because I really would like to see it become a movie; it’s my favorite book. I would hope they’d find someone other than Selena to play Hannah though. she’s a terrible choice for the role, no matter how much she may understand the role; many other girls that are more qualified can understand it too.

    ikr. I wanted someone different for the role, like some unknown actress or something.

    gorgeous? not in this picture

  • BrokenArrow

    I cant see it either. She looks idk like dirty, look at the hair it looks greasy and the make up is not helping her that much.

  • jilti

    The book looks good, has good reviews, seems a good teen history, but I think it’s time to Selena leave the teen roles behind and move on to more adult stories.

  • MovesLikeJagger

    Ew

  • gorgeousselena

    She is going to ruin the book for me. I hate her monotone acting.

    I loved the Sky is Everywhere, I got an advance readers copy and its even signed. I also can’t see her fooling around with an older boy like the character does. Its different when you see a 13 year old grabbing her butt, and when you have to see her with an actual man.

    just stfu you idiot! too bad selena is an amazing actress! you mad cause talentless cyrus sucks? stay mad you fucking moron! damn stupid and jealous people these days!

    Read this book a while ago… Didn’t really like it… At all. I’ll see it regardless, but I’m really hoping the writers of the screenplay and the actors/actresses can turn it around.

    @jayasherguy is the author of “The 13 Reasons Why.” I don’t think it’s been cancelled. The last time he mentioned the film was late last year when he said he met the screenwriter about the progress of the script. He seemed really positive about it.

    Selena has said she has 2 movies in 2012. One will be “Spring Breakers” and the other will be either 13 Reasons or Hot Mess (I’m supposing). Unless she does them out of order. Spring Breakers was added pretty quickly, so who knows what’s next?

  • jilti

    she also need stop trying to adapt each book she likes.

    they tried to make her look older but she looks bad here

  • Fuckyou

    Hot Mess and Spring breakers are totally diff from monte carlo or ramona and beezus.

  • Anonymous

    Her role in “Spring Breakers” is the smallest of the four. It’s going to be a great movie though!

  • august

    I just don’t like this book. Seems ridiculous. Who in the hells first problem is juggling boys when your sister just died? I would think they should focus on the death of the sister and how she struggles with it.
    Maybe selly chose this because of her little sister though, you know

  • AcidPinkLemonade

    I don’t understand why boys are apart of the main plot and the whole “trying to find yourself while stuck in someone’s shadow” theme is really cliche and overdone.
    Selena seems to play the same shy, outcast character in every movie. There’s really no point in her taking on all of these major roles if she’s afraid to the raunchy scenes that tie the story together, (i.e 13 Reasons Why).

  • thedarksunshine

    I’m actually obsessed with this book. I think it’s much better than they make it sound, I’d be so excited if there is actually a movie being done and that Selena is playing Lennie. :3

    I want Emily Browning. she’s perfect for the role on looks alone; however, she’s an amazing actress. she could do this role with no problem.

    Selena playing the clarinet for a role. I can see that. That seems like a great movie! Lots of people will be able to relate to the movie with the needy guys and the older sister stuff.

    What happened to 13 eeasons why?

    4 selena movies in the making. Thank you jesus

    Tacky. Hope she is taking acting lessons since her first two film performances failed! Every1 in Hollywood should have this girls PR team. They could probably get a baked potato a job as a tomato. Spin when your client doesn’t win. PR=A+

    i think 13 reasons got cancelled

    Do you know what the author of the book said on his twitter? I don’t know his twitter but I know he has one.
    I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re right and Selena replaced that movie with this because the plot does have similar undertones, though it’s really not similar.

    The movie had equally good and bad pre-reviews I thought but I thought the good ones overshadowed bad…
