Selena Gomez To Star In Linda Ronstadt Biopic
Selena Gomez is set to play Linda Ronstadt in an upcoming biopic about the legendary singer-songwriter.
Variety reports that the film is currently in pre-production. Producers of the film include Ronstadt’s long-time manager, John Boylan, as well as James Keach, producer behind the 2019 music doc Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice.
Both singers teased the announcement on socials. Ronstadt captioned the news with, "It all started with a simple dream 👀💕"; Gomez posted an image of Ronstadt's 2013 autobiography, Simple Dreams to Instagram.
Gomez has more than music in common with Ronstadt. They are both of Mexican descent and have acting experience under their belts: Ronstadt starred in a 1983 adaptation of The Pirates of Penzance, while Gomez was recently nominated for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a comedy series at the 2024 Screen Actors Guild Awards for her role in Only Murders in the Building.
Last week Selena Gomez announced that she expects to release one more album before she pivots to acting full-time.
