Whether or not you’ve read American Psycho, The Rules of Attraction or Less Than Zero, the name Bret Easton Ellis conjures up a pretty specific set of themes: some combination of twisted social commentary, biting humor and gratuitous violence. And though Ellis has adapted one of own his books to a screenplay, he’s just written his first adaptation of a book that’s not his. That book is Michael Hornburg’s novel Downers Grove which is about a suburban high school where one senior dies a horrible death at the end of each year. Nelson McCormick, best known for the recent remakes of Prom Night and The Stepfather, is attached to direct and it’s set to star Hayden Panettiere (Heroes, Scre4m) and Nikki Reed (Thirteen, Twilight) in addition to Rebecca De Mornay. The whole package is currently being shopped at the America Film Market.  Read more after the jump. Read More »
