The former Disney star wants to focus on the big screen

Selena Gomez is taking a step away from the recording studio to prep for her close-ups! She just lined up her first action movie alongside actor Ethan Hawke and finished filming on upcoming comedy Spring Breakers with James Franco last month.

The former Disney darling recently replaced her pal Miley Cyrus in Adam Sandler's animated movie Hotel Transylvania and has just signed on to star in The Getaway. Not a bad lineup! Sounds like the acting transition might be the right move. But it all might be too much to juggle with her current career. She admits the call of Hollywood has temporarily placed her music aspirations on hold.

She tells MTV News, "I'm just kind of halting music for a bit. [I've] been really focused on more acting. For me it's been fun to take risks and do things that are completely different."

Discussing her new movie with Ethan, she says, "It’s really, really exciting. I go to Bulgaria and then I start filming. It’s more of an action movie, which is also different."

What we want to know is did she discuss her career change with beau Justin Bieber?
