Abigail Breslin Is Virgin Mary

First murder, now sex… It would appear that Abigail Breslin is looking to make her teenage cinematic years the time that she well and truly breaks out of the good girl mould. Her latest effort in that direction? Signing on to Beth Schacter’s indie comedy A Virgin Mary.

Schacter wrote and will direct the film, which finds Breslin as teenager Mary, who makes a pact with her best male pal (Carter Jenkins) that they’ll have sex if they’re both still virgins by the time they hit their 18th birthdays.

The pair is starring alongside Akeelah and the Bee’s Keke Palmer and Spy Kids veteran Daryl Sabara. Schacter aims to kick off shooting early next year.

Before she reports to the set, Breslin will star in true crime indie The Class Project, which finds her as one of two sisters who decide to off their abusive, booze-happy mother. She’s got music drama Janie Jones next on the list for release, followed by an apearance in the sprawling acting ensemble of New Year’s Eve.
