Breslin Plots Matricide In “Class Project”

Abigail Breslin (“Little Miss Sunshine”) has scored the lead role in Stan Brooks’ indie drama “The Class Project” reports Variety.

The true story concerns two Canadian sisters who, tired of their mother’s alcoholism and abusive boyfriends, plot to kill her. The crime wasn’t discovered until over a year later.

Fabrizio Filippo and Adam Till adapted the script from Bob Mitchell’s 2008 book. Michael Rotenberg, Damian Ganczewski and Juliette Hagopian are producing with shooting to start this month.
