Selena Gomez is a long way from Monte Carlo in a new trailer for Rudderless.

The drama, directed by William H. Macy, centers on a man (Billy Crudup) who uses the songs his son wrote to cope with the teenager's tragic death. Gomez plays the son's girlfriend, and she'll presumably be in swimwear less than she was in Spring Breakers.

While the film does contain original music, it hasn't been announced if Gomez will be singing. But based on the trailer, it seems doubtful.
