WestEnd handling sales on the Andy de Emmony-directed comedy/horror.

On the eve of Toronto, young actors Luke Pasqualino (Skins, The Borgias), Jessica Szohr (Gossip Girl), and Ed Speleers (Eragon, A Lonely Place To Die) [pictured] have signed on to star in sex comedy/horror film film Love Bite, which is handled by London-based WestEnd.

Directed by Andy de Emmony (West Is West), the film follows four friends who find their dead-end town turned upside down when a bloodthirsty werewolf starts devouring local virgins. Soon, these four losers realise that the only way to stay safe is to lose their virginity ASAP.

The film is shooting in Scotland with principal photography slated for Oct 9.

Robert Bernstein and Douglas Rae of Ecosse Films (The Water Horse, Becoming Jane, Wuthering Heights) and Paul Ritchie (co-producer, Slumdog Millionaire) are producing in association with Notting Hill Films.

WestEnd Films is financing and handling international sales.
