Trio to fall victim to The Curse of Downers Grove

Bella Heathcote, Lucas Till (STOKER), and Penelope Mitchell (HEMLOCK GROVE) have just signed on for the new psychological thriller THE CURSE OF DOWNERS GROVE, to be directed by award-winning filmmaker Derick Martini from a screenplay by Martini and Bret Easton Ellis (AMERICAN PSYCHO).

A small midwestern town is gripped by a curse that claims the life of one high school senior every year. Chrissie Swanson, played by Heathcote, fears she is the next victim of THE CURSE OF DOWNERS GROVE.

A cursed town. Teens in peril. It sounds like the makings of another CW series or, even worse, another TWILIGHT-inspired young adult novel being primed for a film adaptation, but with Bret Easton Ellis working on the screenplay we should be able to expect so much more than your regular cookie-cutter, formulaic storyline.

THE CURSE OF DOWNERS GROVE is currently in development and will head before the cameras in the spring.

Bella Heathcote is easy on the eyes, wouldn't ya say?
