Sensational Selena Gomez to Star as Linda Ronstadt in Highly Anticipated Biopic

LOS ANGELES, CA – Selena Gomez has been confirmed to portray Linda Ronstadt in an upcoming biopic, according to Rolling Stone. Speculation arose among fans after Gomez posted an Instagram Story featuring Ronstadt’s memoir from 2013, titled “Simple Dreams.” The biopic is currently in pre-production, with John Boylan and James Keach serving as co-producers. No further details about casting or the release date have been announced.

Both Ronstadt and Gomez share Mexican heritage. Ronstadt, in her 2022 album “Feels Like Home,” delved into stories of her heritage and included Sonoran recipes. In 2020, a film called “Linda and the Mockingbirds,” directed by Keach, showcased Ronstadt’s journey to Mexico with Jackson Browne the previous year, where they collaborated with the students of Los Cenzontles Cultural Arts Academy.

A documentary called “Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice” was released in 2019, chronicling Ronstadt’s diverse career spanning nearly five decades, including her prominence in the country rock scene of the 1970s and her Broadway appearance in “Pirates of Penzance.” Ronstadt retired from singing in 2012 after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. In 2021, she sold her catalog to Irving Azoff’s Iconic Artists Group.

Biopics about musicians such as Queen, Elton John, Mötley Crüe, and Elvis Presley have introduced their music to new generations. It is anticipated that Ronstadt’s biopic will have a similar impact.

In conclusion, Selena Gomez is set to star as Linda Ronstadt in an upcoming biopic. The film is currently in pre-production, and further details about casting and the release date have yet to be announced.
