Pop star Selena Gomez has been cast in a new film. The horror film, “Dollhouse,” uses the fashion industry as its backdrop. Not only is Gomez starring in “Dollhouse,” she is also one of the producers.

“Selena’s involvement is an exciting direction for this project. She is supremely talented as both a star and a producer,” said STXfilms Motion Picture Group chairman Adam Fogelson, as reported in fashionweekdaily.com. “Teaming Selena with [co-producers] Shawn and Dan’s expertise in the horror-thriller genre will elevate Dollhouse and we couldn’t be more thrilled by the way this is being developed.”

Selena Gomez has been named one of TIME’s 100 most influential people of 2020 and has over 194 million followers on Instagram. No director has named for “Dollhouse.”

Prime Day is not prime for Amazon workers

German trade union, Verdi, called on German Amazon works to strike on Amazon’s global Prime Day. Amazon’s Prime Day, which is traditionally held in July, is Amazon’s massive two days of sales. Prime Day took place this year on October 13 and October 14.

Verdi organized a two-day strike against Amazon in Germany is a part of their long battle—since 2013—in relation to what Verdi claims is Amazon’s low pay and bad working conditions. Germany is the biggest consumer of Amazon goods after the US.

News site Reveal released a report that states Amazon’s Prime Day is one of the most hazardous workdays for Amazon workers because of the increased sales and workers having to work harder to meet quotas.
