Selena Gomez (“Ramona and Beezus”) has scored one of three lead roles in the comedy “Monte Carlo” for Fox 2000 says Variety.

Based on Jules Bass’ novel “Headhunters”, the story follows a group of young American women who pose as wealthy ladies vacationing in Monaco. Leighton Meester is also in talks for one of the roles.

Nicole Kidman, Denise Di Novi and Alison Greenspan will produce with Kidman potentially playing a supporting role.

Tom Bezucha (“The Family Stone”) directs from a script he co-wrote with Maria Maggenti and April Blair. Filming kicks off in May in Monaco, Budapest and Paris.
