‘Spring Breakers’ Clip: Good girls Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens go bad

We've known this for a while about Vanessa Hudgens, but now Selena Gomez  also seems to have outgrown her former squeaky-clean Disney persona. Both former Disney Channel television show stars have leading roles in a gritty take on vacationing young women in "Spring Breakers."

A new clip from the film (below) shows a barely recognizable bleached blonde Hudgens motioning as if to be shooting a gun -- eventually turning it on herself -- and a disillusioned Gomez, complaining about her "sad" neighborhood surroundings.

It's no wonder -- the film is written and directed by the same guy who wrote 1995's shocking depiction of under-aged sex-and-drugs in the critically-acclaimed film "Kids" -- starring a young Chloë Sevigny and Rosario Dawson. Harmony Korine wrote "Kids" at the age of 19 and now nearly 20 years later, he revisits his penchant for portraying troubled youth in "Spring Breakers."

A far cry from "The Wizards of Waverly Place," on which Gomez, 20, starred until earlier this year -- not to mention 23-year-old Hudgens' former "High School Musical" stomping grounds -- these former Disney starlets are going in an entirely different direction in the upcoming Korine film, debuting at the Venice Film Festival next week on September 5.

Other good girls gone bad in "Spring Breakers" include "Glee" star Heather Morris, who wears a nose ring and has crossed eyes in the film, and "Pretty Little Liars" popular girl Ashley Benson.

The film revolves around a group of college girls who get arrested after robbing a restaurant to get money for their spring break trip. They wind up being asked to do the dirty work of a drug and weapons dealer, played by James Franco -- who, by the way, sports braids in the film.
