Teresa Toten's "Beware That Girl"

Teresa Toten is the author of the acclaimed Blondes series, as well as The Game, The Onlyhouse, among other books. Toten has twice been shortlisted for the Governor General’s Literary Award. Born in Zagreb, Croatia, she arrived in Canada 13 days later, and now lives in Toronto.

Here Toten shares some ideas about the cast of an adaptation of her new novel, Beware That Girl:
In my fantasy, Beware That Girl would have elements of two high school classics: the 1988 cult classic Heathers and in 2012, Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

They’re both smart, dark movies that play with the psyche but have a ridiculous playfulness as well. Sadly, the fabulous cast from both films have aged out of playing high school seniors.

My film will have to rely on young up and coming actors who will make their mark with this film!
