‘Twilight’ star Ashley Greene is being eyed for The Weinstein Company’s much-awaited horror feature “Kristy,” now being referred to as “Satanic,” TheWrap has learned.
Best known for playing Alice Cullen in the “Twilight” franchise, Greene would join Haley Bennett in the film, which is being produced by The Weinstein Company, along with David Kirschner ("Child's Play" franchise); Corey Sienega ("Frailty", "Bride of Chucky"); Jamie Patricof and Lynette Howell ("Blue Valentine", "Place Beyond the Pines").
Oliver Blackburn ("Donkey Punch") is directing from a script by Anthony Jaswinski ("Vanishing on Seventh Street", "See No Evil").
Described as being in the vein of “Rosemary’s Baby,” the story follows a group of college students who are attacked in their dormitory over Thanksgiving break. One girl must lead her friends on a mission of survival and discover the identity of their mysterious attackers.
The film is expected to film in New Orleans from mid-November through much of December, according to a listing with Louisiana Entertainment which handles local film shoots.
The Weinstein Company did not respond to requests from TheWrap for comment.
TWC was also promoting a number of other projects to buyers at the AFM, including its "Untitled Chef Project" from director Derek Cianfrance.
