Is Selena Gomez gearing up for another run at the big screen?

According to Deadline, Universal has acquired the rights to the novel 13 Reasons Why, with hopes the 18-year-old beauty will star.

The book, published in 2007, is about “a shy California high school student who returns from school to find a box waiting on his doorstep. It contains seven cassette tapes recorded by Hanna Baker, the classmate he had a crush on. Before she committed suicide, Hannah sent the tapes to one classmate with instructions to pass them on to a list of students like a chain letter. The tapes explain to 13 people how they played a role in her death.”

Celebuzz reached out to Selena’s reps for confirmation, but they have yet to comment.
