UPDATED 3/2: 'Justin Bieber babe Selena Gomez shooting movie next week in Sarasota'

It appears the movie "Spring Breakers," starring Oscar nominee James Franco and singer/former Disney darling/current Justin Bieber girlfriend Selena Gomez, will be filming next week at the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota.

Writer-director Harmony Korine ("Kids," "Gummo") will shoot scenes with Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens ("High School Musical"), Ashley Benson ("Pretty Little Liars") and Heather Morris ("Glee") on the local campus, according to a report in the Tampa Bay Times.

Franco will reportedly not be in Sarasota and join the production at a later, undisclosed date in St. Pete Beach.

The film is about four college girls who go to jail after robbing a restaurant in order to fund their spring break vacation,  according to They then find themselves bailed out by a drug and arms dealer who wants them to do some dirty work.

Christine Meeker-Lange, special assistant to the president for media and community relations at Ringling College, told the Times that exteriors will be filmed on campus as well as scenes in student housing and a laundry room.

"We don't have the details of who is shooting when," Meeker-Lange said. "I think that's purposeful and I appreciate that. We want them to have the best experience possible."

Before the locals get too excited, they might want to check out Harmony Korine's previous works. You probably won't plan on bringing the whole family.
