Selena Gomez Set to Portray Music Icon Linda Ronstadt in Upcoming Biopic
Hollywood star Selena Gomez has landed a major role in an upcoming biopic, where she will portray the legendary singer-songwriter Linda Ronstadt. The highly-anticipated feature is being produced by James Keach and John Boylan, though no director or additional cast members have been announced yet.
The news was confirmed by Linda Ronstadt’s official social media accounts, which expressed excitement over the casting choice and declared, “It all started with a simple dream.” The Mexican-American artists previously met to discuss the project, highlighting their shared heritage and passion for music.
Hints of the film were dropped by Gomez on her Instagram account, where she shared a photo of Ronstadt’s memoir. Fans immediately suspected that the multi-talented celebrity was involved in a project related to the music icon. Now, their speculation has been met with confirmation.
Linda Ronstadt, an 11-time Grammy winner and a member of the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, achieved remarkable success throughout her career, which spanned several decades. Known for her mesmerizing vocals and versatility, Ronstadt left an indelible mark on the music industry. However, she was later diagnosed with progressive supranuclear palsy, a rare neurodegenerative disease, which forced her to retire from singing.
On the other hand, Selena Gomez has made a name for herself as both a musician and an actress, earning two Grammy nominations and captivating audiences with her performances. Currently starring in the popular Hulu series Only Murders in the Building, Gomez also had a Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 entry in 2020.
Fans are eager to see Gomez step into the shoes of Linda Ronstadt and bring her inspiring story to life on the big screen. With such talented individuals involved in the project, expectations are high for what promises to be a remarkable biopic honoring the legacy of a music icon.
