Jessica Szohr lands horror film

Jessica Szohr has signed up to headline a new sex horror film.

The star played Vanessa Abrams in hit teen drama Gossip Girl but announced her departure from the show earlier this year (11) - and now she's set to drastically change direction and thrill viewers in The Love Bite, directed by Andy de Emmony.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will follow four friends who find their dead-end town under siege from a werewolf on the hunt for virgins. Teens decide to have sex in order to boost their chances of survival.

Jessica Szohr will begin shooting the movie in Scotland in October (11).
