The 77-year-old icon has given Selena her blessings for the new project.

Great Eastern Music, a publisher founded by Ronstadt’s manager, John Boylan, said in the announcement,

“The long-rumored Linda Ronstadt biopic is now up-and-running. Selena Gomez is attached to play Linda,”

“The two recently spent a few hours at Linda’s home discussing the project and getting to know each other,”

James Keach will be producing the exciting project. He was the one who produced the 2019 Ronstadt documentary The Sound of My Voice and the acclaimed 2005 Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line.

Selena, 31, said during her appearance on On Air with Ryan Seacrest in 2015,

“I always used to get told that I look like her,”

“And I started listening to her music because of that.”

After announcing retirement in 2011, Linda suffered from Parkinson’s disease in 2013. The 11-time Grammy winner was famous for rock and country jazz and Latin music.

In 2014, she was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and was honored by Kennedy Center Honors in 2019 for her legendary career.
