Hollywood star Selena Gomez has had a pretty big year, as the former Disney star has starred in films including the upcoming animated film, The Mermaid, and the forthcoming Disney Channel series, Beauty and the Beast.
But as she and the rest of the film crew begin their first big film job since leaving Disney, she’s also launching a new project.
The actress will produce a documentary titled Pearl Harbor, which will chronicle her time as a US Navy lieutenant during the second world war.
The film, which is being produced by her production company, Pearl Harbour Films, will be released in three parts.
In the first, Gomez will interview the surviving crew members of the USS Franklin, a ship sunk in a German U-boat attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.
The Franklin, which was the second ship sunk by U-boats in the war, is one of three U-boat ships that sank in Pearl Harbor.
It is the last of three German UBoat ships to be sunk in the battle.
In the second part, Gomez and her crew will interview former Pearl Harbor survivors, including the crew members from the Franklin, who are also survivors of the attack.
Gomez will also interview other survivors, who have never been interviewed before.
Gomez, who won a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild award for her role as the mother of a newborn boy in Disney’s Beauty and a Beast, will executive produce the film with the studio and Pearl Harbour’s creative team.
“Selena Gomez is a visionary and a filmmaker who brings a tremendous sense of humor to the role of the Navy’s Pearl Harbor Survivors, and she will bring her unique voice to this project,” Pearl Harbour president and CEO Greg Miller said in a statement.
“Pearl Harbor Survivors has been a passion project for Selena, and I am thrilled to be able to bring the story of Pearl Harbor to life.”
Selena’s new project will be based on the story she tells in her autobiography, Pearl Harbor: A Story of Pearl.
The book chronicles the events leading up to Pearl Harbor and details her harrowing experience as a young woman in the US Navy.
Selena told The New York Times that the project will not include any “bizarre or sensationalist” scenes.
“I hope that what’s coming to the screen will be entertaining and relatable for everyone, and not something that has been sensationalized or sensationalized to make it seem like it’s more shocking than it is,” she said.
The Pearl Harbor Survivor documentary, which Gomez will produce, will focus on the survivors’ experiences, and will be shot at Pearl Harbor Naval Air Station, near San Diego, California, where the USS Hancock, the ship that sank the Franklin in 1941, is currently being refurbished.
