Selena Gomez to star in FOX feature film "Monte Carlo"

Selena Gomez, 17, is replacing Nicole Kidman, 42, as the star of upcoming movie "Monte Carlo." Kidman is also a producer of the comedy along with Denise Di Novi and Alison Greenspan

Based on the book "Headhunters" by Jules Bass, the story is about three women who try to pass themselves off as rich ladies vacationing in Monaco. Kidman was originally slated to star before it was decided that the script should be youth-enized.

Now two of the women are college students and one is a graduate student. They're on a cheap holiday in Paris when they flee to Monte Carlo to live the good life, even if they are also living a lie.

Leighton Meester of "Gossip Girl" will be co-starring with Gomez, the star of the Disney Channel series "Wizards of Waverly Place." The movie, to be directed by Tom Bezucha, begins filming May, 2010 in Paris, Monte Carlo, and Budapest.

Kidman may take on a supporting role, according to Variety.
