Selena Gomez is heading back to the big screen.

The Pop singer is set to star as mountaineer Silvia Vásquez-Lavado in a new biopic about her life, per The Hollywood Reporter.

Full story below:

The film, ‘In the Shadow of the Mountain,’ is based off of Vásquez’s memoir of the same name. She was the first Peruvian woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest and the first openly gay women to complete the Seven Summits, climbing the highest peak on each of the seven continents.

Scott Budnick’s One Community is set to produce the film along with Oscar winner Donna Gigliotti, who will produce the movie under her Tempesta Films banner.

In a statement Gigliotti said:

“Silvia is a force of nature. Scott and I are so excited to work with Elgin and Selena to tell this story of resilience, courage, adventure and humanity.”

Further details of the movie are unknown at this time. The book, of which the movie is based on, is set to hit shelves in the winter of 2022.
