Selena Gomez To Star In ‘Wizards Of Waverly Place’ Movie

Selena Gomez isn’t entirely ready to let go of her wholesome Disney image. The star of the racy Spring Breakers movie is heading back to Waverly Place for a new movie.

According to E! Online, Gomez will produce and star in a new hour-long Wizards of Waverly Place movie.

Gomez said:

“I’m not ready for it to be over, so I just kind of want to do one more thing. It was my idea to kind of start this, because I wanted to do it really badly. I want to make sure I promise the cast and the fans a really, really good hour-long event that they can enjoy and will leave them feeling good.”

The final episode of Wizards of Waverly Place aired in January of 2007. Gomez has moved on to a successful music career with her band Selena Gomez & the Scene, and a movie career with Hotel Transylvania and Spring Breakers.

The Wizards of Waverly Place movie special will start production next month. The episode will follow the Russo family as they make a trip to Tuscany. Jake T. Austin, Jennifer Stone, David DeLuise and Gregg Sulkin will all be returning for the new special which will air sometime next year.
