Bella Thorne is shaking things up for her next project…
The 15-year-old half-Cuban American actress, the star of the Disney Channel sitcom Shake It Up, has landed one of the lead roles in Home Invasion.
Helmed by rookie feature Director Sean Carter, the thriller centers on a family imprisoned by intruders who play a life-and-death game in which the mysterious rules become clear as the night unfolds.
Thorne, who will be penning a series of Young Adult books, will portray Jamie, a disillusioned teenager intensely guarding a personal secret.
Home Invasion was written by first-time scribe Joseph Dembner.
It’s the latest film role for Thorne, whose Shake It Up is in its third season on the Disney Channel. She recently wrapped a role in the Adam Sandler–Drew Barrymore comedy Blended.
Thorne is nominated for an Imagen Award in the Best Young Actress, Television category. She’s also signed to Disney’s Hollywood Records.
