According to Deadline, Selena Gomez will join Paul Rudd in the recently announced adaptation of Jonathan Evison’s The Revised Fundamentals Of Caregiving. The plot centers on Ben, a man who loses his family and finds work as a caregiver for a young man named Trevor, who is in the advanced stages of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. After bonding, the two embark on a road trip in search of Trevor’s father, who bailed when Trevor was diagnosed. Rudd will star as Ben, while Gomez will play Dot, “a sassy 17-year-old who hitches a ride with the pair during a road trip, and whose forwardness and lack of embarrassment about Trevor’s condition causes him to develop a crush on her.” The Revised Fundamentals Of Caregiving begins shooting January 22 in Atlanta.
