Selena Gomez - Selena Gomez Fought For Bad Girl Jail Role

Selena Gomez fought hard for a part in upcoming jail drama Spring Breakers because she was desperate to tackle a "very dark and very different" role.
The clean-cut actress will co-star with Vanessa Hudgens and Emma Roberts as college students who end up behind bars after committing a robbery in director Harmony Korine's next film.
Gomez worked tirelessly to prepare for her audition with Korine, and took a flight across the country from Los Angeles to Tennessee to try out.
She says, "I watched all of his films. I had to fight for that role because I flew to his house in Nashville and watched all his movies. I was like, 'I want to be in your movie' and he auditioned me for like an hour or two hours and it was awesome. Then I got the part so I am excited.
"It is something that is very dark and is very different and I am excited to be able to work with him. Of course, he is the person that is going to create all of this and he is going to help me and James Franco, Vanessa, Emma... They are all going to be so great to work against and the script is (great). People are going to be a little surprised."
The former Disney star admits she is not worried about her younger fans sneaking into theatres to see the movie since it will be an independent project.
She adds, "It will go to film festivals but it won't be so easy access to the younger audience. They can't go to the movies to watch that unless they went somewhere, so it won't be so much about that. It will be more for me just doing something that I am passionate about."
Production is due to start in early 2012.
