There's been no official announcement but she's been spotted on set in a party scene, so there's a fair chance she's one of the titular sorority.
The plot is being kept under wraps, but Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne and Dave Franco are all back reprising the roles from the first film, while Chloë Grace Moretz has been cast as the head of the sorority.
The original - known as just Neighbors in the Us - grossed $269 million and told the story of a couple battling to deal with the fraternity that moves in next door.

Having previously been a Spring Breaker, Selena Gomez has now progressed to sorority girl, joining the cast of Bad Neighbours 2 to cause more trouble for Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne.The new film, currently subtitled Sorority Rising, reunites Rogen and Byrne as Mac and Kelly Radner, who in the first movie had to deal with the loud, obnoxious frat brotherhood (led by Zac Efron’s Teddy) that moved in next door.A prank war quickly escalated, though there was something of an understanding between Mac and the finally graduated Teddy by the end. And he’ll come in useful when an even worse crowd, led by Chloe Moretz, takes over the house next door in the sequel. Gomez reportedly plays a pretender to Moretz's throne. Catfight!Original director Nicholas Stoller is back for this one, and he’s also a writer this time alongside Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Andrew Jay Cohen »
With Neighbors, Zac Efron was given the opportunity to grow beyond his Disney Channel image and take part in something a lot more adult. Now new reports have confirmed that Neighbors 2 will offer a similar opportunity to Selena Gomez, who has signed on for a part in the Nicholas Stoller-directed sequel. Variety has the scoop on this casting story, noting that the actress has been spotted on the set of the comedy - which is currently in production. No official details have been revealed about her role in the movie, though she was spotted wearing sorority girl-esque clothing. While this is just speculation, it wouldn't be hard to believe that she is playing a part somewhat similar to the one played by Dave Franco in the first Neighbors - which is to say that she will be second-in-command at the sorority house behind Chloe Moretz's character.

Hey y'all, it's Neighbors 2 time already! Can you believe it? It feels like only yesterday we were watching Seth Rogen try to do mushrooms with college kids and Zac Efron have a maybe-real coke-fueled fight on the big screen, and now the cast is already reuniting for the sequel. The whole gang (Seth, Zac, Rose Byrne) is back for Sorority Rising, along with the addition of Chloë Grace Moretz and one very special guest pictured above. That's right, ladies and gentleman, you are looking at none other than Selena Gomez filming scenes on the Atlanta set. Which means...Selena Gomez has joined the cast of Neighbors 2. It was a sneaky move, what with her not »
The original revolved around a couple whose lives are turned upside-down after declaring war on the fraternity that moved in next door. The sequel’s plot is unknown, though sources say a sorority could be the couple’s problem this time.
Gomez’s involvement in the film broke when fan photos revealed that she was on set. While details surrounding her role are unknown, her sorority girl-esque costume (a tight pink dress) suggests her character’s involvement with the Greek system.

We. Can't. Wait. Selena Gomez started shooting scenes for the highly-anticipated sequel of "Neighbors," "Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising," in Atlanta, Georgia on Wednesday. Gomez looked pretty in pink as she appeared on set in a skin-tight strapless bandage dress with her shoulder-length tresses styled straight. Judging from the photos, we're guessing the 23-year-old pop star is playing the head of another Greek organization on campus -- and it appears she's surrounded by pledges. But don't worry, Seth Rogen assured us that Zac Efron will most definitely be reprising his ab-tastic role as Teddy Sanders in the sequel. "Me and Zac will both have our shirts off," he told toofab while promoting Hilarity for Charity back in April. Rose Bryne and Dave Franco are both returning as well and Chloe Grace Moretz will join Gomez as a fellow sorority girl. Selena also appeared in a Snapchat from the set, where she »

Based on Rick Yancey's best-selling novel, the story centres around a 16-year-old girl scrambling to survive in the wake of an alien invasion.
5th Wave already has one sequel in book form, The Infinite Sea, with trilogy closer The Last Star arriving in 2016 and destined to be split into two movies.
"The girl I play, Cassie, loses her entire family, except for her little brother, but she has to fight and struggle to find him again because she has no-one left in her life," she said.
"That's what's different to those other movies; this »
With The Hunger Games coming to an end this year, that's going to leave something a gap in the cinema schedules for a big young adult movie franchise. Divergent isn't really filling the gap too well, whilst the second Maze Runner movie will give us a better idea of how things are faring there.
So could The 5th Wave step in? Starring Chloe Grace Moretz and based on the Rick Yancey-penned book series, it tells of a world in the midst of an alien invasion. Thus, Moretz's character, Cassie Sullivan, is one of those trying to survive, and in her case, trying to reunite with her younger brother.
The first trailer for The 5th Wave has landed, to give us a flavour of what's in store. Here it is...
And here's the official synopsis. »
30. Lady Snowblood Part 1 and Part 2
While American comic books have struggled for legitimacy as adult entertainment for decades, their Japanese counterparts have long enjoyed acceptance as legitimate elements of mainstream culture. So while the American comic book movie only properly took off in the last fifteen years, jidaigeki adaptations of popular manga have been a staple of Japanese pulp cinema since the early 1970s. The best of these remains Lady Snowblood, director Toshiya Fujita’s two part revenge opera of a woman checking off a kill list of the gangsters who killed her family and left her for dead. Any familiarity to Kill Bill is entirely intentional, with multiple visuals, soundtrack elements and plot points lifted whole cloth by Tarantino. But even for those only familiar with the update, Fujita’s films remain feats of hard edged efficiency, actress Meiko Kaji a goddess of death in a world of opposing colors and sudden violence. »

The latest series hoping to join hits like The Maze Runner, The Hunger Games, Insurgent, and Twilight is The 5th Wave, and this week we got our first look at the big-screen version. Adapted from Rick Yancey's novel of the same name, The 5th Wave stars Chloë Grace Moretz as a young woman on the run in a future where mankind has been ravaged by an escalating series of alien invasions. As you can probably guess from the title, the story picks up right before the fifth, and presumably deadliest, wave of the invasion is set to begin. Liev Schreiber, Maika Monroe, Nick Robinson, Maria Bello, Maggie Siff, and Ron Livingston also star. Check...

The Young Adult adaption train continues to chug along at a decent clip, and Chloe Grace Moretz is jumping on board with The 5th Wave, based on the best selling novel by Rick Yancy. Moretz plays Cassie, a teenager forced to fend for herself after four waves of increasingly deadly attacks by a mysterious alien force has left the world decimated. With fear and mistrust growing amongst the surviving humans, Cassie must save her younger brother as the invaders prepare for their fifth wave of attack which will exterminate humanity once and for all. While The Host dropped the ball mixing the aline invasion flick with Ya sensibilities, there is quite a bit to like about The 5th Wave, even though it does wheel out the dystopian angle all Ya adaptions. It’s still only the first trailer, but keeping the aliens off screen and their motives secret has me intrigued. »
