Selena Gomez is poised to star in STXfilms’ psychological horror-thriller Dollhouse, which she has just signed on to produce under her July Moon Productions banner along with Shawn Levy and his company 21 Laps.
Michael Paisley wrote the script, and while plot details are being kept in a tiny room somewhere, the project is set in the upper echelon of New York City’s fashion scene, and said to be in the vein of Black Swan. It will be developed as a starring vehicle for Gomez.
21 Laps’ Dan Cohen will join Levy and Gomez in producing the film, and the trio have begun searching for a director to shepherd the project to the big screen. STX’s Patricia Braga will oversee Dollhouse for the studio, while Emily Morris will oversee the project on behalf of 21 Laps.
“Selena’s involvement is an exciting direction for this project. She is supremely talented as both a star and a producer,” STXfilms chairman Adam Fogelson said in a statement. “Teaming Selena with Shawn and Dan’s expertise in the horror-thriller genre will elevate Dollhouse and we couldn’t be more thrilled by the way this is being developed.”
