Bella Thorne is crossing over to the dark side–at least a character she will play in the near future is. The actress will soon go from being a Disney darling to starring in a new Amityville horror film opposite Jennifer Jason Leigh. Leigh will reportedly play a single mother who moves with her kids to the iconic Amityville house. And of course everyone knows what will happen next. Thorne will play one of Leigh’s three kids, set to embark on a new life replete with bad background music and sounds, as well as an ample amount of shock factor.
The original Amityville Horror came out in 1979 and received a front and center remake in 2005 starring Ryan Reynolds and Chloe Moretz. The franchise is based on a book by Jay Anson called The Amityville Horror: A True Story.
Franck Khalfoun is director of the fright flick that is scheduled for release in theaters in January of 2015.
Bella Thorne seems very excited to be starring in this horror film. She shared word of her upcoming role via Instagram.
Thorne also shared a photo of a makeup test she took part in for the upcoming film.
Thorne is best known for her role in The Disney Channel hit Shake It Up. She stars in the film Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day and she starred in Adam Sandler’s film Blended. She will soon appear on the big screen in a thriller called Home Invasion.
Will Bella survive the Amityville house of horrors? Do you think her character will be among those who make it out at the end of the horror film?
Fans will have to wait to see Bella Thorne in the latest in the Amityville Horror films, but can see her work in literary form this coming summer, as her first book is scheduled to hit book stores then. This multi-talented 16-year-old clearly has a lot to offer and it sounds like she plans to be in the spotlight for many years to come.
