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

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."
Then: Disney stars Selena Gomez ("The Wizards of Waverly Place") and Vanessa Hudgens ("High School Musical")
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.
