EXCLUSIVE: Endgame Entertainment’s James D. Stern has put together the comedy Hot Mess with Selena Gomez in talks to star and Dave Meyers in discussions to direct. Based on the Black List script by Jenni Ross, Hot Mess revolves around four girls desperately trying to avoid becoming the hot messes they are destined to be. Young actresses are mobilizing for the other roles. Stern and Endgame’s Julie Goldstein are producing with Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Marisa Yeres. Gomez last starred in Monte Carlo and will next be seen in The Muppets. While Meyers’ first feature was the genre remake The Hitcher, he works in this youth demo as a top video director who has teamed with Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez and Pink and just won a Video Music Award for Katy Perry’s Firework.
