The film, which is shooting in New Orleans, follows wealthy opportunists who profited off the American economic meltdown in the mid-2000s, reported Entertainment Weekly. Selena Gomez, 22, is apparently playing a Manhattan professional. It appears she will appear in a cameo as her participation in the shoot, which took place at Harrah's Casino in the French Quarter, was for only a day.

In 2013, the singer-actress admitted to Ellen DeGeneres that she was starstruck when she first met Brad Pitt after he came to meet her after a concert.

'The Big Short', a dramatic departure for director Adam McKay, also stars Marisa Tomei, Steve Carell and Scarlet Johansson. According to a source, Jay Z and Beyonce are also scheduled to film cameos later this week.
