Bella Heatcote was one of the best things in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows and has also been seen in In Time and Killing Them Softly. Now she’s got a new role, as Variety reports that she and Penelope Mitchell have joined Lucas Till, Jill Hennessy and Kevin Zegers in Derick Martini’s indie thriller, The Curse Of Downers Grove.
The movie is about a supposed curse that takes the life of one high school student every year, and a high school seniors growing paranoia that it might be them. The script comes from Hick helmer Martini and Bret Easton Ellis, based on Michael Hornburg’s 2001 novel.
There’s no news on exactly who Heathcote and Mitchell will play, although presumably they’ll be students at the school. The plan is to shoot this spring.
