Brett Easton Ellis’ ‘Curse of Downer’s Grove’ Casts Two More

Downer’s Grove is a real place, in fact, my father works there in Illinois.

Award-winning indie filmmaker Derick Martini is currently working with with Brett Easton Ellis on the new psychological thriller The Curse of Downer’s Grove.

It was announced today that Bella Heathcote, who just recently starred in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, will star as well as Penelope Mitchell, the “Hemlock Grove” star who has landed the lead role. Kevin Zegers, and Lucas Till also star.

Director Derick Martini takes us on a wild ride through a small Midwestern town gripped by a curse that claims the life of one high school senior every year. Chrissie Swanson, played by Heathcote, fears she is the next victim of The Curse of Downers Grove.

The film, currently in development, will begin production in spring of this year.
