Selena Gomez isn’t letting her ongoing “Revival World Tour” or sobering self doubt keep her from redefining herself as a multi-hyphenate entertainer. Recently, Selena was featured in “The Fundamentals of Caring.” Now, Selena will be showing off her acting chops in yet another film.
Selena stars alongside James Franco, Josh Hutcherson, Bryan Cranston and Nat Wolff in “In Dubious Battle.” Based on the John Steinbeck novel, the film follows a major apple picker strike in California in the 1930s. The film is directed by James Franco and will premiere at the Venice Film Festival next month.
