Selena Gomez is adding the title of executive producer to her resume.

Justin Bieber's gal is reuniting with her Wizards of Waverly Place pals for a one-off reunion special, which will air on Disney early next year.

The 20-year-old actress-singer will star in the movie while also doing producing work behind the camera.

What does mama Bieber think of Justin and Selena dating?

"I think she'll be great because she's great at seeing the whole picture," Gomez's Wizards mom Maria Canals-Barrera told us at last night's Los Angeles premiere of Batman Live about Gomez producing the flick. "She's not just focused on her part. She's the kind of actor that can see the whole story.

"I think she'll take it seriously like she does," she continued. "I think it's going to be great, I really do. I'm very excited about it."

The movie special, which will follow Gomez's Wizards fam on a trip to Tuscany, is set to start production next month in L.A. Costars Jake T. Austin, Jennifer Stone, David DeLuise and Gregg Sulkin will also return.

Canals-Barrera says she's most looking forward to getting to reunite with Gomez for the flick.

"She's so sweet and talented and easy to work with," she gushed. "She's so good that whatever stuff we'd have to do together, it was so satisfying because she's so good. She's so talented."
