Production starts in Canada in March.
Bella Thorne’s thriller-crime cachet is quickly expanding. Not even six months after the releases of 2018’s Assassination Nation and I Still See You, the singer and actor is set to star in yet another psychological thriller.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bella will play the lead in the upcoming Girl, the film debut from writer and director Chad Faust. Though major details of her role remain under wraps, her character is described as “a young woman who returns to her small hometown intent on killing her abusive father, only to discover someone else got to him first.” Upon discovering her father’s death, Bella’s character reportedly embarks on a journey for answers, bringing to light her family’s dangerous legacy. If that doesn’t scream thriller, I don’t know what does.
The film, produced by Envision Arts, is scheduled to start shooting in Canada in March; Canadian sales group Double Dutch International (DDI) will be looking for European buyers at the upcoming Berlin International Film Festival.
“Bella is a very talented young actress who makes bold choices,” DDI CEO Jason Moring said in a statement to THR. “This is a strong lead role that will not just resonate with Bella’s massive fan base, but also with the cultural zeitgeist.”
It seems the cancellation in June of Bella’s Freeform series, Famous In Love, isn’t affecting her career in a negative way. This isn’t the only thriller project she has lined up: According to Bella’s IMDb page, she will appear in the upcoming Exo and Leave Not One Alive, also in lead roles. Keep killing it, Bella (pun intended).
Two weeks after a failed break-in attempt, the San Fernando Valley home of Bella Thorne has been hit with burglars who used her designer luggage to successfully move the stolen goods.
The burglars were able to enter the residence by breaking the front window after Thorne left, per a TMZ report published Tuesday. With faces wrapped in bandanas, the group was ultimately able to escape with roughly $150,000 worth of Thorne’s valuables. Police sources claim vintage clothes, high-end jewelry, and purses are among the items Thorne has confirmed as missing.
Surveillance footage caught the group in the act and has since been turned over to local authorities.
Complex has reached out to Thorne’s rep for comment.
On Aug. 21, a would-be thief attempted to make his way into Thorne’s home by smashing another window. Thorne happened to be in the residence at the time, ultimately causing the man to flee the scene when she walked outside to find the source of the sudden late-night noise.
Batwoman is coming to the CW — and Twitter is beyond excited about it. On July 17, Variety reported that the CW is currently looking to expanding its DC universe by adapting Batwoman’s story into a television series which would likely premiere in 2019. But TBH, that’s not even the most exciting part about this announcement.
As Deadline reported last week, the series will feature Batwoman as a lesbian, like she is in the comics — and if the series makes it to our screens, Deadline noted that she’ll be the first gay lead character of a live-action superhero series. But the news only gets better. Both executive producers — Caroline Dries and Greg Berlanti (director of Love, Simon) — are gay, and according to TV Line, are looking to cast Batwoman with a queer actor. (A novel idea!)
While the role of Batwoman hasn’t yet been cast, Twitter is already throwing out some suggestions on who they want to see play the trailblazing character.
One of the actors getting named the most on social media is Natasha Negovanlis, best known for her role on the queer vampire drama Carmilla and whom fans think has the perfect brooding abilities needed for portraying Batwoman. Then there were some more mainstream suggestions, including Bella Thorne, who we last saw on TV in Famous in Love and could give some unexpected zing to the role, and Tessa Thompson, as suggested by FANDOM, who has already played a hero in Thor: Ragnarok and could undoubtedly play a similarly bad*ss version of Batwoman.
Other popular names thrown into the ring were Orange Is the New Black’s Ruby Rose and Evan Rachel Wood.
And finally, some of the other names mentioned as great Batwoman choices were a group of TV actresses currently working on some big shows right now, including Monica Raymund, who is currently starring on Chicago P.D. and Chicago Fire; Elise Bauman, who has appeared on The Handmaid’s Tale and in the lesbian drama Below Her Mouth; and Bex Taylor-Klaus, who not only mentioned in a recent Comic-Con interview she’d love to play Batwoman, but has starred on Scream: The TV Series and lends her voice on the animated series Voltron.
Casting for Batwoman will likely get underway soon since our first sighting of this fan-favorite will be happening sooner rather than later. As announced in May, Batwoman will be popping up in the next major Arrowverse crossover event, appearing on episodes of Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl.
Bella Thorne is living the single life — and we hear that she’s totally happy about it! Following all of the drama with Charlie Puth and Tyler Posey, Bella just wants to kick back and ‘chill’, and we don’t blame here. Get all of the details right here!
Bella Thorne, 19, is taking a break from men! After her split from Tyler Posey, 25, and whatever-that-was with Charlie Puth, 25, a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that Bella wants to step back from the dating game.
“Bella is happy that the drama of her breakup and her moment with Charlie has come and gone,” the insider shares. “She is realizing that she needs some time to be single and she knows she rushed out of a relationship with Gregg Sulkin, 24, to get right back into one with Tyler and that was not the best of ideas.” As you may recall, Bella broke up with Gregg in August, and she started dating the Teen Wolf star less than a month later!
“She just needs to chill,” the source also reveals, “And she is using this time to do that and to be happy with the single life.” Good for you, Bells!
The former Shake It Up star offered a little recap of her year on Twitter Dec. 25, obviously referring to the ups and downs of her dating life. “Wow this year was the happiest and saddest of times for me…an emotional-train wreck-clusterf*ck #merrychristmas,” she wrote. Now, Bella seems to be enjoying her little vacation from men. As she tweeted on Dec. 26: “Feeling pink and warm and bubbly and sh*t.” There you have it!
Tyler Posey who?!
Bella Thorne has been snapped ‘kissing, hugging and holding hands’ with singer Charlie Puth on a beach in Miami, which has naturally sparked ALL the rumours that the pair may be in fact dating each other.
Hang on a minute…
What about Bella and Tyler Posey?! Well, it was rumoured that they had called off their romance in November, but the split was never officially confirmed by the couple themselves.
So fans were quick to notice how much time the actress and singer had recently been spending with each other, as Bella’s Instagram story showed her watching Charlie performing at the Y100 Jingle Ball in Miami.
They were also spotted in each other’s Snapchat stories with Bella singing Charlie’s song ‘River’ whilst also ‘hacking’ Charlie’s Snapchat to post a selfie.
InTouch reported that Bella had taken her relatonship with Tyler to the next level and moved into his home two months ago, whilst Star magazine revealed that Bella and Tyler had got into a fight around the same time and apparently called off the relationship soon after.
Yep, it’s all a tad confusing but if Bella and Charlie are in fact dating, CONGRATS! We guess we’ll just have to wait to hear from these guys before we jump to conclusions…
