Helen Slater has joined Bella Heathcoate, Lucas Till and Kevin Zegers in indie thriller “The Curse of Downer’s Grove.”

Oren Segal, Jason Dubin and Chiara Trento are producing. Derick Martini is directing from a script that he co-wrote with Bret Easton Ellis.

Slater will play the mother of Heathcote’s character — a girl who fears she is the next victim of a curse which claims the life of a high school student every year.

Slater recently wrapped the feature “The Good Mother” and the second season the ABC Family series “The Lying Game.” She is represented by Bauman, Redanty & Shaul and Lisa DiSante.
