Bella Thorne will star in the supernatural romantic thriller “Break My Heart 1,000 Times,” based on Daniel Waters’ young adult novel.
Scott Speer is directing from a script by Jason Fuchs.
The story centers on a cataclysmic event that tears the barrier between this world and the next, leaving “Remnants,” or ghost-like essences of the deceased, part of everyday life. After years of quiet coexistence with the living, a Remnant sends a threatening message to a young girl, propelling her on a mission that will forever change the course of her life.
Thorne recently finished filming Speer’s “Midnight Sun” opposite Patrick Schwarzenegger; Tyler Perry’s “Boo! A Madea Halloween”; and “The Babysitter,” directed by McG; along with the premiere episode for the Freeform series “Famous in Love.”
Speer’s credits include “Step Up Revolution” as well as episodes of MTV’s “Finding Carter.”
Fuchs wrote Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment’s upcoming “Wonder Woman,” and is currently penning “Lobo” for DC as well.
“Break My Heart 1,000 Times” will be produced by Paul Brooks, with Scott Niemeyer, Brad Kessell and Fuchs executive producing. Good Universe is handling international sales.
Gold Circle’s producing credits include the “Pitch Perfect” franchise at Universal.
Thorne is repped by CAA and Thor Bradwell at Thirty Three Management.
