Hayden Panettiere is wasting no time in becoming Hollywood’s next Scream Queen. With Scream 4 under her belt, she’s now joining the thriller Downer’s Grove. Prom Night’s Nelson McCormick is directing the script adapted by Bret Easton Ellis, with Panettiere, Nikki Reed, and Rebecca De Mornay having signed on.
The film follows the story of Downers Grove, a cursed suburb of Chicago. At the end of each school year, one senior dies a bizarre death. I don’t know if the storyline will span a few years to ensure more victims, or if it all revolves around a single graduating class. I’m also not sure why these seniors don’t drop out or move to another school district. Explain yourself, Easton Ellis! (Variety)
