Vanessa Hudgens In 'Kitchen Sink'? 'Spring Breakers' Star May Have Found Next Gig

AP

Spring break, forever: According to TheWrap, Vanessa Hudgens is in talks to star in "Kitchen Sink," a high-concept genre riff that focuses on a group of teens who team with vampires and zombies to fend off alien invaders. (It's like "Monster Squad," but for modern audiences; no word yet if Wolfman and his nards will appear.)

Oren Uziel wrote the script for "Kitchen Sink," which appeared on the 2010 Black List, a collection of the best unproduced screenplays in Hollywood. Uziel was recently tapped by Sony to write "Men In Black 4."

For Hudgens, "Kitchen Sink" would be another shift away from expectations. The actress, who also stars as a prostitute in this year's thriller "Frozen Ground," has said in the past that her goal is to become the type of performer who's taken seriously for their work.

"I want people to look at me not as that girl from 'High School Musical,' but as an actress they admire," she said to The New York Times earlier this year. "With 'Spring Breakers' I'm looking for a reaction for sure. I want to shock people."

To that end, Hudgens released a new song following the "Spring Breakers" debut called "$$$ex." Fans can guess what the track is about or just watch the video below.
