There are really only two things you need to know about the upcoming movie “Monte Carlo.” It takes place in beautiful international locations and it features an all-star cast that includes Cory Monteith, Selena Gomez, Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy. I mean talk about a winning combination!
Still, when MTV News caught up with the stars of the flick (due in theaters this July), they all had plenty of reasons as to why “Monte Carlo” will be a good bet for a night out at the movies.
Cory, looking sexy in his shades, welcomed us to the set and then sat down to discuss what he thinks the film is all about. “[It's] a tale of stolen gems and teenage hi-jinks,” the actor explained. Then, perhaps realizing he wasn’t on the set of “Glee,” corrected himself and said with a smile, “Young adult hi-jinks!”
Those hi-jinks, as Cory put it, really begin when three friends from Texas (Selena, Leighton and Katie) have their vacation turned upside down thanks to—as Leighton, explained to us—”a big case of mistaken identity.”
Turns out, Selena’s character resembles a British heiress. So when their European trip needs a little livening up, she decides to take on that persona, and soon enough she and her gal pals are in the lap of luxury in some of the world’s most desired destinations. “It’s basically a romantic adventure/comedy,” the singer/actress told us.
Katie, however, sees the movie as, “kind of a fairy tale in a sense.” She continued, “The three of us go on this adventure from a lower-class Texas to the glitz and glam of Paris and Europe.”
In addition to teaming up with her “Gossip Girl” co-star Leighton on the big screen, Katie ensured fans that “Monte Carlo” is “a wonderful, fun adventure that they get to go on [and] experience beautiful sights.”
And while you may never be mistaken for a British heiress and take on a glamorous double life with your best friends in Europe, Katie promises moviegoers will be, “able to relate to each of these girls in a different way.”
