Hardwicke Directs “The Bitch Posse”

Catherine Hardwicke (“Twilight,” “Red Riding Hood”) is set to direct a film adaptation of Martha O’Connor’s 2006 novel “The Bitch Posse” for Ambush Entertainment says Deadline.

The story follows three high school seniors from troubled homes who form a dangerous alliance. Something occurs that rips apart the friendship and haunts them into adulthood.

The narrative switches back and forth between those high school years and their adult lives where one is in a mental institution, the other is a promiscuous writer and the third suffers through a loveless marriage.

Tristine Skyler adapted the script while Miranda Bailey, Matthew Leutwyler, Virginia Madsen and Karly Meola will produce.
