Having previously been a Spring Breaker, Selena Gomez has now progressed to sorority girl, joining the cast of Bad Neighbours 2 to cause more trouble for Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne.
The new film, currently subtitled Sorority Rising, reunites Rogen and Byrne as Mac and Kelly Radner, who in the first movie had to deal with the loud, obnoxious frat brotherhood (led by Zac Efron’s Teddy) that moved in next door.
A prank war quickly escalated, though there was something of an understanding between Mac and the finally graduated Teddy by the end. And he’ll come in useful when an even worse crowd, led by Chloe Moretz, takes over the house next door in the sequel. Gomez reportedly plays a pretender to Moretz's throne. Catfight!
Original director Nicholas Stoller is back for this one, and he’s also a writer this time alongside Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Andrew Jay Cohen and Brendan O’Brien, who wrote the first pic.
Dave Franco and Carlo Gallo constitute yet more returning cast, with Kiersey Clemons and Beanie Feldstein also among the newbies.
Shooting has been underway for a couple of weeks, and Bad Neighbours 2 should be out on May 6 next year.
The Australian drama from director Matthew Saville is set to screen in Toronto's Contemporary World Cinema section.

It's clearly a morning for Netflix casting news. Following stories about Luke Cage and Bloodline, here's some Daredevil. Stephen Rider (Safe House, The Butler) will be joining the cast for the second season of the street-level Marvel vigilante show. He's playing District Attorney Blake Tower.
Tower comes straight from the comics, although as is par for the course, he'll certainly have been adapted for purpose here. The character made his debut in a 1968 Marv Wolfman issue ("Man-Bull In A China-Town!") and has been a sporadic returning character - in Daredevil and other titles - ever since. In more recent years he was instrumental in She-Hulk's law career.
Deadline's intel pegs Tower as a regular character and an ally for Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock, feeding him the information that helps him catch bad guys. Rider joins other new cast members including Elodie Yung as Elektra and Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle, AKA The Punisher.
Daredevil will be back on Netflix next year, likely launching in April. The connected Jessica Jones will arrive beforehand in November, with Luke Cage probably arriving after Daredevil sometime in 2016.
