The Curse of Downers Grove is an upcoming American thriller film directed by Derick Martini and written by Martini and Bret Easton Ellis.[1] Based on the 2001 novel Downers Grove by Michael Hornburg, the film stars Kevin Zegers, Bella Heathcote, Penelope Mitchell, Lucas Till, Zane Holtz, Helen Slater, and Tom Arnold. The film is currently in post-production and is expected to be released in 2014.

Plot[edit]

Set in Downers Grove, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, the film is a teen angst thriller set in a high school gripped by an apparent curse that claims the life of a senior every year. The story follows the lives of two seniors: Chrissie, who is skeptical of the curse, and Tracy, who believes that she may be the next victim.

Production[edit]

Filming[edit]

Principal photography began on March 10, 2013 and lasted for 25 days. Filming primarily took place throughout Pomona, California, including the historic Lincoln Park neighborhood.[2] It is the first feature film to take advantage of an expansion of the studio zone resulting in the availability of Pomona.[3]

Music[edit]

The film's music was composed by Matthew Margeson, who previously co-scored Kick-Ass 2 with Henry Jackman.[4]
