Selena Gomez joins William H. Macy’s tear-jerker

It looks like Spring Break is over for Selena Gomez.

William H. Macy has lined up an impressive cast for his directorial debut.

Deadline reports that the actor has cast Selena Gomez, Laurence Fishburne, Anton Yelchin and Billy Crudup in his upcoming musical drama Rudderless.

The film’s moving plot centers on a father who loses his son and starts a band so that he can bring the songs that the deceased young man left behind to life.

In other words, it’s bound to have audiences sobbing into their popcorn.

Macy and the cast will squeeze the film into an already-crowded schedule.

He’ll direct the film while on hiatus from the Showtime series Shameless. The versatile actor will soon star in the comedy Trust Me with Sam Rockwell as well as Two-Bit Waltz.

Gomez is currently appearing in Spring Breakers and will soon be seen in the horror thriller Aftershock. Later this year she’ll appear in Behaving Badly opposite Mary-Louise Parker.
