Remember when Abigail Breslin was the cute and sweet little girl in Little Miss Sunshine and Kit Kittredge: An American Girl? Since then, she has slightly changed. We saw her battling zombies in Zombieland and soon, we’ll see her plotting to kill her mother. Yes, you read that correctly.
According to Variety, Stan Brooks is directing a screenplay based on Bob Mitchell’s book The Class Project: How to Kill a Mother: The True Story of Canada’s Infamous Bathtub Girls, in which Breslin will play the lead role. The screenplay has been shortened to just The Class Project and is written by Fabrizio Filippo and Adam Till.
The story tells of two Canadian sisters who plot to kill their mother after becoming fed up with her alcoholism and abusive boyfriends. The crime was discovered more than a year later.
Production for The Class Project is scheduled to begin next month. Breslin can be seen next in Janie Jones, which is set to open October 28, and Garry Marshall’s New Year’s Day, scheduled for release on December 9.
