Disney Channel star lands role in thriller.

Bella Thorne, best known for her work on Disney Channel series Shake It Up, is to play a lead role in thriller Home Invasion.

Having recently finished production on the Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore comedy Blended, Thorne has been cast as Jamie - a disenchanted teen who guards a personal secret.

Although most of the plot has been kept under wraps, it is understood that the story involves a family who is imprisoned in their own home by intruders who toy with their lives.

Sean Carter will make his directorial debut with the project. It will be written by Joseph Dembner and produced by Silver Pictures.
