Definitely after Sucker Punch Vanessa Hudgens made a slight detachment from her teen movies.
And now the actress is in negotiations to take it a step further in a new indie drama. From writer/ director Ron Krauss, the film is entitled Gimme Shelter.
Hudgens plays a character that runs away from home after getting pregnant. Her mother can’t give her the support she needs; so, she tracks down her biological father who’s only willing to help her if she gets an abortion. Why? Because he believes he was young and stupid when he fathered her, and he doesn’t want to see her make the same mistake. The father role, is of by Brendan Fraser.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gimme Shelter should begin principal photography in less than a month. That would put the release date sometime into 2012.
My hope is that the final product is close to Juno or something similar.
