Director Jose Padilha has been spending the past few months filling out his cast for his upcoming "RoboCop" remake, which, if you're disgusted by the idea of such a thing, we're sorry to say is still happening. If you're not bothered at the idea of yet another remake of a Paul Verhoeven sci-fi classic (what's next? A "Starship Troopers" remake? Oh, wait, that's happening too), then you'll probably be thrilled to learn that the role of Liz Kline will be filled by Jennifer Ehle. Who is Liz Kline? Actually, we don't know.

Disney pop princess Selena Gomez has earned a considerable amount of respect from us for allowing her film roles to stray pretty far away from her squeaky clean image that made her name. With a cameo role in the Eli Roth-starring earthquake thriller “Aftershock” and a revealing supporting part alongside James Franco in the Harmony Kormine-directed “Spring Breakers,” it would look as if the days of typical teenage dreck like “Monte Carlo” are at least partially in her rearview. Gomez is now set to star opposite Nat Wolff in a coming-of-age rock 'n roll comedy "Parental Guidance Suggested," based on the Ric Browde book “While I'm Dead...Feed the Dog,” which centers on a rock infused journey of a 16-year-old named Ric Thibault (Wolff) and his crush Nina Pennington (Gomez). It’s not exactly the ballsy material we were just priding her for taking part in, but she could do a lot worse. Dylan McDermott, Cary Elwes, and Austin Stowell will co-star.
