Hayden Panettiere and Nikki Reed to team up for Downers Grove
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Hayden Panettiere (TV’s Heroes) and Nikki Reed (TWILIGHT franchise) will be starring in the upcoming thriller entitled DOWNERS GROVE. The script is written by Bret Easton Ellis and is based on the novel of the same name by Michael Hornberg. The film takes place in a high school in the suburbs of Chicago where each year a student dies some bizarre death before the end of the school term. Panettiere’s character is in fear that she will be the next victim this year. Besides Nikki Reed, the film will also star Rebecca De Mornay in a role not yet known. Filming will begin next spring.
Aside from I LOVE YOU, BETH COOPER, Hayden Panettiere has yet to really do something huge since her stint as Claire Bennet. She does have SCREAM 4 lined up but I’m not sure how big her role will be or if it’ll just be a kill-off cameo ala Drew Barrymore.
