In addition to being a producer on her hit Hulu show “Only Murders In The Building”, Selena Gomez is venturing into more producing.
Deadline reports that Selena Gomez is in final negotiations to produce a reboot of “Working Girl,” the Mike Nichols-directed comedy starring Sigourney Weaver, Melanie Griffith, and Harrison Ford.
Casting has not been set, and it’s unclear if Gomez will star in the “Working Girl” remake in addition to serving as a producer. The 1988 version follows an ambitious 30-something Staten Island secretary who takes over office operations while her boss is recovering from a broken leg. But when the secretary pitches a winning idea, her boss attempts to take credit.
Working Girl was a pop cultural phenomenon at the time of its release, grossing over $100 million at the box office before earning six Oscar nominations — including one for Best Picture. It eventually won Best Original Song for Carly Simon’s “Let the River Run.”
Following the film’s success, Sandra Bullock tried to recapture the magic of “Working Girl” in a short-lived NBC series in the 1990s, though it was canceled early due to low ratings.
