Derick Martini helms indie thriller
Oren Segal, Jason Dubin and Chiara Trento are producing, with lensing set for spring. Martini, who directed “Hick,” is helming from a script he co-wrote with Bret Easton Ellis, adapted from 2001’s Michael Hornburg novel.
Story centers on a paranoid high school senior who’s worried about an apparent curse that takes the life of one student every year at the school.
Holtz will portray a meth-crazed sidekick to Zegers’ character. He recently played the lead in a pair of indies shot last year — Russell Friedenberg’s “Wind Walkers” and Danny Buday’s “Another Stateside” — and was in “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.”
Holtz is repped by Gersh, 3 Arts and Stone, Meyer, Genow, Smelkinson & Binder.
