Bella Thorne Set To Star In Upcoming Thriller Film ‘Saint Clare’ From ‘American Psycho’ Writer

Bella Thorne is stepping away from the adult film industry to star in the upcoming thriller film, Saint Clare. The movie, which was co-written by ‘American Psycho‘ writer Guinevere Turner, stars Thorne as a quiet catholic college student with a divine vocation for killing.

The story is actually based on the novel Clare at Sixteen by Don Roff. There’s actually a sequel book coming out in 2023, so the first book was obviously a pretty big success. It was released back in March of 2021.

Mitzi Perione is set to direct this project. She previously directed the psychological thriller ‘Dying to Play’ in 2018. That was her feature directorial debut, so this will be just her second feature.

Producers are in negotiations with Rebecca DeMornay (Jessica Jones) to join the cast, with additional casting of other key roles underway. Production is scheduled to begin soon in Kentucky.

Screen Media has already picked up worldwide rights to the project and will launch international sales at this month’s Cannes market. Screen Media will handle distribution in the U.S.

It’s likely this film gets a 2023 release date, and if it’s a success, you can bet they’ll make a sequel the following year.
