Vanessa Hudgens is moving on from the High School Musical franchise — High School Musical 3: Senior Year will be the last one for her and then there will be no more.
But she’s already got her next project lined up. Hudgens is currently in the process of shooting Will, which will be released in 2009, well after HSM 3 hits the big screen.
But while her next movie will take place in a familiar surrounding (high school) and does have the whole music thing goin’ on, Hudgens’ character is not going to just be another Gabriella Montez. Her Will character is going be significantly darker.
“My look is definitely more dark than in HSM. I play kind of the emo, kept away from everybody else in her own world’ kinda girl,” Vanessa told ET. “She wears a lot of black. She always has longsleeves with thumbs in them.”
Plus, she gets to be in a band in the movie, which is something she never got to do in real life.
“No, I was never in a band…not even close. I was girl groups, but that was pretty much it,” she lamented.
