Vanessa Hudgens: 'Gimme Shelter' Lead?

Vanessa Hudgens next project may be playing a pregnant homeless teen in the indie drama, Gimme Shelter!

The 22-year-old actress is in final negotiations to star in the flick, opposite The Mummy star Brendan Fraser, who would play her dad.

Vanessa would play the teen “who flees her abusive mother and seeks out her biological father,” according to THR.

FYI: Brendan starred in the first Journey to the Center of the Earth film, while Vanessa can be seen in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island this September!

This is what I read about the film:

About the film:
This street-wise, 16 year old girl who calls herself Apple has never had an easy life. Her mother is a junkie and prostitute, is verbally and physically abusive, and is grooming her daughter to follow in her footsteps.
Apple knows the streets, alleys and motels like the back of her hand but wants more from her life. She possesses a tenacious, tough, indomitable spirit, and will not surrender to fate. Apple runs away from her mother and tracks down her father whom she has never known, as he was only 19 himself when he got Apple’s mother pregnant. Apple begs her now Wall Street Broker father to take her in. In the few days under her father’s care she learns she’s become pregnant by a kid from the streets she met on the train, who now wants nothing to do with her. She is forced to leave her father’s home because of her choice to give birth to the baby she carrying.
Apple runs away again, and is eventuallu taken under the wing of Father McCarthy, the chaplain of the local hospital after almost getting herself killed. He offers to let Apple live at a shelter for pregnant young women run by a spiritual woman named Kathy. It is here that Apple begins to tentatively interact with the other girls who are in the same predicament as she and gradually begins to make a family for herself.


It sounds like an awesome movie, a great new kind of role for Vanessa to show more of her acting. It can also be worth mentioning on that on the same site it says that the movie will start filming in the end of may so it’s really soon. I love how this girl really isn’t affraid to take charge of her carer and I must say that this two/two.five month break she took between J2 and this is a good amount of time, I would think that it would be easy to get restless with too much time without being on set, I’m glad that it wasn’t like last year now that she have more movies out I hope we’ll continue hearing about new roles.

The smile I have right now, nobody can imagine it…

Nicki313 @ 9:52 pm on 04/29/2011

This shouldn’t be hard for her, its when she trys to play strong characters then I worry. She’s kinda prefect for this.

sky10 @ 9:57 pm on 04/29/2011

YEsss!..Thank GOD new project for Vanessa and new team up..GOD Blss you Vanessa and Brendan … what’s the new intrigues this time!!??

sel @ 9:58 pm on 04/29/2011

why is she still playing teens? and the role doesn’t seem hard to pull off so i don’t think it’s something i’ll be excited about. plus it’s a low budget indie movie which usually means lower quality and release.

luvu2 @ 10:06 pm on 04/29/2011

@lauren: Your a vicious troll. Your Lipkin20 on Tweeter who goes to other trolls to find out information on Vanessa and Zac then you make judgements as if you actually know something. I also saw your vicious comments on Perez Hilton. I’ll bet your something to look at since you don’t have a life except to put down Vanessa. Jealously from behind your computer is not pretty. I hope you pick out another celebrity soon to love/hate because here on Vanessa’s board we’re sick of you.

Katty @ 10:08 pm on 04/29/2011

Sounds interesting, very new and different for her, just what she needs. I like it.

And to @sel:

For these stars at this age it is an obstacle to get them to be playing their age, they are usually younger or older than who they are playing, it’s difficult. And low budget Indie film doesn’t mean it’s going to be bad or not improve her or give her more recognition. In fact, it’s usually the low budget Indie films that end up being actually very good and landing starts very good jobs.

Sel, there is a different between playing a teen or young adult in a teen movie and playing teen in a grown-up film, this falls in the second cathegory (other films like that as an example is ‘Winter’s bonme’ where Lawren’s character is a teen but the movie is more for an older audience), it’s also possible that they might change the age to make the character older that’s not unheard of either. I also think it sucks that some of you have to judge the film before it even starts production simply becuae Vanessa is in it you judge it as bad already, had it been some other actress you wouldn’t have said anything, I think it sounds like a great role for her, it will alou her to explore both a characters sexy/edgy side when she grows up in a tough neighbourhood and then when she deal with her mother, her father and his wife and then also finding out that she is pregnant and runs away and is almost killed will let Vanessa also experience the vunreble side of te character, personally I think that this sounds like a character who really experience a lot which will let vanessa try so many different thing and different emotions and it will be great for her carer.

well it’s kinda hard to miss you when everytime there is a Vanessa or zac story on any site you are there to comment. This is the only place I post comments but I go to other sites aswell i just don’t comment and I see you on each one and it’s not hard to figure out it’s you when you keep posting the same thing over and over again.

Ha ha @ 11:09 pm on 04/29/2011
