Selena Gomez might be starring in a zombie movie… or she might not.
Some Selena fans pieced together enough evidence on Tuesday night to convince us that she is starring in an upcoming zombie movie.
It started when Twitter user @AlyssaSeptic posted a screenshot of a Snapchat message she received from a friend. In the photo, Selena Gomez is standing across the street from the friend’s house in Fleischmanns, New York.
“I WISH I NEVER MOVED. SELENA GOMEZ RIGHT NOW IS SHOOTING A MOVIE IN MY OLD TOWN IM LEGIT CRYING,” Alyssa wrote with the photo.
When asked by a follower if it looked like a movie or music video, Alyssa replied, “MUSIC VIDEO.” We searched, but it looks like she has since deleted her tweets.
Selena’s fans are detectives though, and the next piece of evidence points to her actually filming a movie… a zombie movie.
On Monday, a man named Alan Powell in Fleischmanns, where Selena is filming, posted on Facebook that he rented his house out for a zombie movie called Kill The Head. His house will be used for filming for the next month.
Another man in Fleischmanns, Miguel Martinez-Riddle, also posted about filming for a zombie movie taking place. He writes that his friend’s kids went right up to Jim Jarmusch about being zombies in the film, and, oh yeah, Selena Gomez is there.
Now let’s be clear: we have no definitive proof that Selena Gomez is tied to the zombie movie currently filming in Fleischmanns besides that she’s apparently there right now.
Fleischmanns is a small town with a population of less than 400 people. No celebrity could get away with filming there without being seen.
Up until now, the zombie movie was clearly a well-kept secret since two different titles are floating around: Kill The Head and The Dead Never Die (which, if true, could be a remake of a 1975 TV movie called The Dead Don’t Die).
We’re going to go out on a limb and guess that Kill The Head is the correct title since it comes from the man who rented his house out for production. But no matter the title, there’s another piece of evidence to consider:
According to Wikipedia, Jim Jarmusch is a director, screenwriter, producer, and actor. On IMDB, one of the listed trademarks of his work is “Often casts musicians as actors in his films.”
What do you think?
Is Selena Gomez starring in a zombie flick, or is she filming a music video in Fleischmanns at the same time a zombie flick is filming there?
