Abigail Breslin assigned to ‘Class Project’

'Sunshine' thesp toplining Stan Brooks' dark indie drama

“Little Miss Sunshine” star Abigail Breslin is going to a much darker place: a lead role in indie drama “The Class Project.”

Stan Brooks is directing from a script by Fabrizio Filippo and Adam Till, who adapted Toronto Star reporter Bob Mitchell’s 2008 book “The Class Project: How To Kill a Mother: The True Story of Canada’s Infamous Bathtub Girls.”

The true story concerns two Canadian sisters who, tired of their mother’s alcoholism and abusive boyfriends, plot to kill her. It was more than a year before their crime was discovered.

Michael Rotenberg (“Extract”) is producing with Damian Ganczewski and Juliette Hagopian. Production is set to start this month.

Breslin next stars opposite Alessandro Nivola in Tribeca Films’ “Janie Jones,” slated to open Oct. 28. Thesp, who recently voiced a role in Gore Verbinski’s “Rango,” also appears as part of the ensemble of Garry Marshall’s “New Year’s Eve,” which Warner Bros. releases Dec. 9.

She is repped by ICM and Untitled Entertainment.
