Gomez, who owns July Moon Productions, has joined up with STXfilms in a collaboration to produce the film. It has been described as a psychological thriller and is pegged to be along with the same lines as Black Swan, which starred Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, and Winona Ryder.

Gomez will produce the movie along with Dan Cohen and 21 Laps’ Shawn Levy. Michael Paisley penned the script, which is set in the upper echelon of New York City’s fashion scene, and a search is underway for a director. The project will be overseen by Patricia Braga of STX and 21 Laps’ Emily Morris.

STX films Motion Picture Group chairman, Adam Fogelson says that having Selena involved in the film is an exciting direction for this project.

“She is supremely talented as both a star and a producer. Teaming Selena with Shawn and Dan’s expertise in the horror-thriller genre will elevate Dollhouse and we couldn’t be more thrilled by the way this is being developed.”

Not a first foray into film for Gomez

Gomez is no stranger to the movie industry, having worked both in front of and behind the camera. She served as executive producer on Tri-Star’s romantic comedy Broken Hearts Gallery and will continue to be the executive producer and lead female in Sony’s Hotel Transylvania 4.

Last year, Gomez appeared in Jim Jarmusch’s apocalyptic zombie comedy The Dead Don’t Die, alongside Chloë Sevigny, and Bill Murray. She can currently be seen starring in her own quarantine-themed HBO Max cooking show, Selena + Chef, which she also executive produces. Gomez also executive produced Living Undocumented and the Netflix hit 13 Reasons Why.

In addition to the fashion-themed horror film, Dollhouse, other upcoming projects will include producing and starring opposite Steve Martin and Martin Short in Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building.
