‘Manson Girls’ Finds New Ringleader, Cast

Bloody Disgusting just received word that Susanna Lo is replacing Matthew Bright as the writer/director of Manson Girls, which will now begin shooting in February. As previously reported, Lindsay Lohan is no longer attached. Instead, we’ve learned that Thora Birch (Train, Deadline), Heather Matarazzo (the upside-down chick from Hostel: Part II), Nikki Blonsky, Jennifer Landon, Erin Kelly, and Michael Monks will all star in the pic that follows a young girl from a wealthy Malibu family who fell under Manson’s spell. She was not one the “Family” members involved in the clan’s infamous murder spree, but Pitman was later imprisoned after she became involved with the Aryan Brotherhood and was convicted of being an accessory (after the fact) to murder.
