There might not be any big names attached to The Curse Of Downers Grove, but the movie is certainly attaching a very attractive cast. Bella Heathcote, Penelope Mitchell, Lucas Till, Jill Hennessy and Kevin Zegers are already set to star, and now Variety reports they’ve been joined by Zane Holtz.
Although not that well known, the model and actor has appeared in the likes of The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief and the TV series, Make It Or Break It. His profile may rise this year as he’s shot the lead roles in the upcoming independent movies, Wind Walkers and Another Stateside.
Derick Martini (Lymelife) is directing the indie thriller, which is about a supposed curse that takes the life of one high school student every year, and a high school senior’s 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.
Holtz with play the meth-loving sidekick of Zeger’s character.
