When she’s not wowing the masses as a genuine pop music sensation, Selena Gomez can be found producing a bevy of new content across a variety of outlets. Up next, the multi-talented performer and creator is teaming with the 20th Century for a reboot of the classic film Working Girl, according to Deadline.
Per the initial report, Gomez is in final talks to executive produce the film. Moreover, Diary of a Future President Ilana Peña is adapting the film’s script with Hulu serving as the film’s most likely landing place.
Directed by Mike Nichols and written by Kevin Wade, the original Working Girl was released by 20th Century Fox in 1988. Starring Harrison Ford, Sigourney Weaver, Joan Cusack, and Melanie Griffith, the film follows an ambitious secretary from Staten Island who takes over her boss while she is out with a broken leg. When the secretary comes up with a profitable idea, the boss attempts to take credit for it. Working Girl was nominated for six Academy Awards in 1989, including Best Picture, Best Director for Nichols, and Best Actress for Griffith. Meanwhile, both Weaver and Joan Cusack were nominated for Best Supporting Actress.
Selena Gomez currently stars alongside Steve Martin and Martin Short in the critically acclaimed series Only Murders in the Building. Additionally, the multihyphenate will soon release season four of her HBO Max cooking show Selena + Chef.
