'Twilight' Director Catherine Hardwicke to Helm 'Bitch Posse'


Catherine Hardwicke


Hardwicke is back to her 'Thirteen' roots by leaving the supernatural genre for a psychological drama based on a 2006 novel.

Catherine Hardwicke's next directorial projects after "Twilight" continue to get highlights. After tackling "Red Riding Hood", she is now on board "The Bitch Posse" which is a movie based on Martha O'Connor novel and which script is penned by actress slash scribe Tristine Skyler.

The novel which was published in 2006 follows the story of three friends, Cherry, Amy and Rennie, high school seniors who come from troubled homes and form a dangerous alliance called the Bitch Posse. Something occurs that rips apart the friendship and haunts them into adulthood. One of them ends up in a mental institution, one is a promiscuous failed writer and the other is having trouble in her marriage.

The book's style is to switch between high school years and adulthood. "After pages of vodka, cocaine, 'f**king' and 'cutting' (in both past and present narratives), the friends' terrible secret finally comes to light," says the novel's description via Publisher's Weekly.

Virginia Madsen and Karly Meola, whose production company Title IX optioned the book, will produce along with Miranda Bailey and Matthew Leutwyler through their Ambush Entertainment banner.
