Selena Gomez has an intense new acting role

Maaaaaan! Selena is returning to acting in a big way.

Over the past few years, our girl Selena has been focusing on her singing career but now the 24-year-old has returned to acting. 

We are so used to seeing her in light-hearted stuff like Wizards of Waverly Place and Monte Carlo but her latest movie role is far from the Disney star she once was. 

The movie is called In Dubious Battle and it is set in 1933. It tells the story of the labour movement for fruit workers in California at that time.

Pretty damn different to how we're used to seeing Selena, right?
