An adaptation of 2000 novel INNOCENCE joins the mini resurgence of boarding school frights.
Deadline reports Kelly Reilly, who starred James Watkin's vicious youth debut EDEN LAKE, has joined the feature film version of Jane Mendelsohn's book, INNOCENCE. The tale sees a young teenager find herself in an upscale boarding school secretly overrun with vampires. Reilly will play the school nurse, who apparently does more harm than good. Playwright Tristine Skyler is scripting.
Here's Amazon's synopsis of the novel "When Beckett is transplanted to an upscale school in Manhattan after the death of her mother, she is not surprised to be snubbed by the in-crowd. What does surprise her, and her loving father, is that when she looks out her apartment window one night, the three most popular girls in school are dead on the asphalt below, their blue jeans seeping blood. Beckett is already prone to Holden Caulfield-like observations about the fakeness around her, the propensity of the people she meets to become only "movie stars" acting their parts. Are the suicides imaginary? And what about her new friend, Pamela, the school nurse, who begins to date her father? Is this woman's concern purely affectionate or does Beckett, a beautiful young virgin, have something that she wants?"
As previously mentioned, INNOCENCE now joins the currently available MOTH DIARIES, the planned SUSPIRIA remake and adaptation of Lois Duncan's DOWN A DARK HALL in setting. Maybe, if one hits, we could get Clive Barker's PIG BLOOD BLUES going?
