Hayden Panettiere and Nikki Reed in Bret Easton Ellis thriller

Twilight actress Nikki Reed and Heroes star Hayden Panettiere are joining forces for a thriller called Downers Grove.

The film is based on a novel by Michael Hornberg and has been adapted for the screen by none other than the legendary American Psycho author, Bret Easton Ellis.

Downers Grove is the story of a cursed high school in Chicago where a strange death takes place each year before graduation. The two main characters are Chrissie, who is from a troubled home, and Tracey her sexually adventurous best friend. There’s no word yet who will be playing who, but our bet is on Hayden as the sexually liberated one.

The chief of Myriad Pictures, who owns the project, Kirk D’Amico had this to say about it: “The combination of the thriller genre, a very popular and well-known cast, Bret Easton Ellis’ dynamic screenplay and Nelson McCormick’s incredible skill with young actors and ability to create tension and terror on-screen is just unbeatable.”

We couldn’t agree more.

Both actress are enjoying huge success right now. Nikki is of course part of the huge Twilight franchise and is currently filming the fourth instalment. Hayden is starring in latest Scream film, Scream 4 which is due out early next year and is bound to be a box-office hit.

Downers Grove will begin filming in the coming Spring in Louisiana. Is anyone else as excited as we are for this?
