The Curse of Downers Grove is a movie currently in production and scheduled to be released in 2014. It stars Tom Arnold, Helen Slater, Bella Heathcote, Lucas Till, Zane Holtz, and Penelope Mitchell. Set in Downers Grove, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, Heathcote plays a teenage girl who fears she's the next victim of the curse that claims the life of one high school senior each year. Arnold and Slater play the girl's parents, who have their own demons. The movie is adapted from the 2001 Michael Hornburg novel, Downers Grove. Derick Martini and Bret Easton Ellis wrote the screenplay. The musical score was composed by Matthew Margeson. 
Principal filming commenced in early 2013. Filming occurred in Pomona, California's historic Lincoln Park neighborhood and other locations in Pomona, a consequence of the expansion of the studio zone to include Pomona, nominally over 30 miles beyond the intersection of La Cienega and Beverly Boulevards, of which the thirty mile zone is calculated. This is the first feature film to take advantage of the expansion of the zone and film in Pomona.
