Co-written by American Psycho scribe
Jamie Babbit is slipping behind the camera for the teen thriller Breaking the Girl. She’ll do so for Myriad Pictures (Jeepers Creepers II) and a 2011 release is being eyed.
Mark Distefano and Guinevere Turner (American Psycho) penned the screenplay about a naive college student who falls in with a manipulative classmate who implicates her in a murder. Amanda Crew (The Haunting in Connecticut) and Adrianne Palicki (Legion) are set to star.
“Amanda and Adrianne are perfectly cast as the two students who become almost more than friends before the truth about Alex is revealed, says Myriad’s Kirk D’Amico said. “It’s sexy and scary and we expect it to fall into the same genre category as films like Prom Night and Wild Things.”
Babbit has spent a good portion of her career working in television on shows like The L Word, Cougar Town and Reaper.
