After the production for Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers" was kicked off in Florida, Vanessa Hudgens unveiled details about her role in the film. The "Beastly" actress, who was previously reported to take on the role of one of the girl gang members in the drama film, opened up that her character's name is Candy.
In an interview with E! News, the 23-year-old brunette beauty described Candy as "a crazy party girl." She went on explaining, "She's one I feel kind of gets everyone going and pushes everyone a little bit."
Hudgens admitted that she's excited about working together with fellow former Disney darling Selena Gomez as well as "Pretty Little Liars" star Ashley Benson. The Salinas-born star said that she's ready to let loose in the upcoming movie. "It's all done in the craziest manic way. There's a bit of craziness inside of me as well, so I'm excited to let loose," she enthused.
Furthermore, the "Sucker Punch" star shared that she loves to play Candy because the character is partly related to herself. "I think at the end of the day you have to do parts that you could semi-relate. I'm certainly not one who is going to rob a bank, but there is a part of me that loves smashing things and I get to do that," she said.
On the other hand, Gomez confessed that she's still learning to act like a drunkard for the movie. "I've watched tons of movies," the 19-year-old songstress said. "It'll be a real challenge for me because it is completely opposite for me."
"Spring Breakers" follows four college girls who rob fast food joint so they can afford to go on spring break in Florida. Gomez will play the most religious member of the gang. They are joined by James Franco who plays a drug and arms dealer who bails the girls out of jail and entices them to kill his rival.
In addition to serving as the director, Korine provides the screenplay for the edgy drama. His wife, Rachel Korine, will tackle a supporting role along with "Glee" star Heather Morris. The movie is expected to make its way out into the U.S. theaters sometime in 2013.
