nikki reed and hayden panettiere to star in bret easton ellis thriller

Twilight fans, Heroes fans, and Bret Easton Ellis fans rejoice! This one's got something for all of you!

Nikki Reed of Twilight fame and Hayden Panettiere of Heroes fame have both signed on to Downers Grove, a thriller written by Bret Easton Ellis.

The film is based on a novel by Michael Hornberg, which was adapted into a screenplay by Ellis. The rights to the book were acquired by Myriad Pictures.

The story is about a cursed high school student in Chicago who "suffers the peculiar death of a senior each year before graduation."

No announcement yet on which role the actresses will play, but most likely they'll play the two main characters: Chrissie, who's a senior in high school from a troubled home, and Tracy, her sexually adventurous friend.

Hmm…we CAN'T imagine which actress Nikki Reed will be cast as the sexually adventurous one!

Production on the film is set to begin in Spring of 2011 in Louisiana, and the film will be directed by Prom Night's Nelson McCormick.

Here's what Myriad Pictures' Kirk D'Amico had to say about the project:

"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're def curious about this one. The Bret Easton Ellis factor intrigues us…and it'd be inneresting to see Nikki Reed flex her non-Twilight acting muscles.

Are U excited to see this thriller?
