The multi-talented Selena Gomez began her acting career as a child actor on ‘Barney & Friends,’ before gaining prominence for her role as Alex Russo on Disney Channel’s ‘Wizards of Waverly Places.’ Upon giving impressive onscreen performances, she went on to appear on the big screen as well, including ‘Ramona and Beezus,’ ‘Monte Carlo,’ ‘Spring Breakers,’ ‘Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising,’ and ‘The Dead Don’t Die.’

Selena made her return to television shows with the HBO Max cooking series ‘Selena + Chef’ and the murder mystery show ‘Only Murders in the Building.’ For the latter, she not only received critical praise but also nominations for a Golden Globe Award. Primarily a singer, she has had plenty of hit records to her name, such as ‘Come & Get It,’ ‘Good For You,’ ‘Hands to Myself,’ and ‘Lose You to Love Me.’ She even received a nomination for the Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Album for her Spanish-language EP ‘Revelación.’ Apart from new music, she continues to work on new film projects as well, making our readers eager to learn about the latter.

1. Wizards (2024)

Things are going to get nostalgic as Gomez and David Henrie are reuniting as siblings Alex and Justin Russo for ‘Wizards Of Waverly Place’ sequel series. Directed by Andy Fickman (multiple episodes) and written by Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas, the show’s pilot episode (to be directed by Fickman) has already been greenlit by Disney and will begin filming next month. The show is slated to arrive this fall on both Disney Channel and Disney+. The original show which ran from 2007 to 2012 was created by Todd J. Greenwald. It followed the Russo family of wizards and their daily lives underscored by magic and humor.

The upcoming show will have an adult Justin revisiting his wizard skills while living a normal life with his new family after his sister Alex brings home a young wizard named Billie who requires training to hone his skills. How he, assisted by Alex, juggles the responsibilities of the two worlds is what we will get to see. Other than Gomez and Henrie, the cast includes Janice LeAnn Brown as Billie, along with Mimi Gianopulos, Alkaio Thiele, and Max Matenko. Both Gomez and Henrie serve as executive producers along with Elinoff and Thomas. All that we need to wait for is a release date.

2. Only Murders in the Building Season 4 (2024)

The renowned Hulu comedy mystery series has been renewed for its 4th season. ‘Only Murders in the Building’ stars Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez. Their characters love true crime podcasts and this makes them look into the mysterious murders in their lavish apartment building, the Arconia. Season 3 ends with the murder of Sazz Pataki (Jane Lunch). Thus, season 4 likely will show the trio (Martin’s Charles, Short’s Oliver, and Gomez’s Mabel) investigating her death among other intriguing developments. Showrunner John Hoffman is back to helm the project along with writer Ben Philippe. Directors Jamie Babbit and Cherien Dabis are also returning. While the season is in production, we are yet to get any release date announcements. However, it is safe to say that it will most possibly arrive in 2024.

3. Emilia Perez (TBA)

Selena Gomez will soon be seen on the big screen as she essays the role of one of the leading characters in the upcoming ‘Emilia Perez,’ a crime comedy film written and helmed by Jacques Audiard. Set in Mexico, the narrative follows a Mexican drug lord on the run from the authorities who decides to have a sex change and transform into a woman so that he can evade the police and fulfill his dream of living as a woman. Selena is set to share the screen with Karla Sofia Gascón and Zoe Saldaña. Reports suggest that the production was done and dusted in July 2023, and is expected to be released sometime in 2024.

4. Untitled Linda Ronstadt Biopic (TBA)

A yet-untitled film based on the life of American country/ rock ‘n’ roll/ Latin music legend Linda Ronstadt is in its pre-production stage with David O. Russell (‘Three Kings’ (1999), ‘Silver Linings Playbook,’ (2012) ‘American Hustle’ (2013)) set to direct and Gomez to star as the musician. A Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Ronstadt is an 11-time Grammy-award-winning singer who also has an Emmy to her name. Some of her most popular albums include ‘Heart Like a Wheel,’ ‘Living in the USA,’ and ‘Simple Dreams.’ No other cast member has been revealed as of now. James Keach, who produced the documentary ‘Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice’ (2019), is co-producing the film alongside Ronstadt’s manager John Boylan. Further updates about production and release are awaited.

5. Spiral (TBA)

Helmed by Petra Collins, ‘Spiral’ is an upcoming thriller drama film that chronicles the journey of a former social media influencer whose addiction to social media begins to damage her physical being, making her body literally fall apart. It was announced back in April 2021 that Selena was attached to star in the Drake-produced movie as the lead character. Selena and Collins go way back to 2015 when they met for Wonderland magazine and the former has worked under her direction for the music video of ‘Fetish’ in 2017. ‘Spiral’ is in its pre-production stage and there is no news of an official release date yet.

6. In the Shadow of the Mountain (TBA)

Based on the 2022 eponymous memoir by Silvia Vásquez-Lavado, ‘In the Shadow of the Mountain’ is a biographical drama film currently in its pre-production stage.
