Selena Gomez Picture

Selena Gomez is set to star as Linda Ronstadt in a new music biopic that is currently in pre-production. The pop singer teased the role by posting a picture of Ronstadt's 2013 memoir "Simple Dreams" on her Instagram story. Ronstadt and Gomez are both of Mexican descent.

The film is produced by Ronstadt's manager, John Boylan, and James Keach, who produced the 2019 documentary "Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice". No other casting has been announced.

Ronstadt is a country, rock 'n' roll and Latin music legend, with her 1970s albums "Heart Like a Wheel" and "Simple Dreams" reaching critical and commercial success and showcasing her versatility across genres. Throughout her career she has won 11 Grammys, and she was honored by both the Recording Academy and the Latin Recording Academy with Lifetime Achievement Awards.

In 2011, Ronstadt announced her retirement, later revealing she is no longer able to sing due to her progressive supranuclear palsy, which was originally mistaken for Parkinson's.
