‘Hills’ Star Audrina Patridge Joins ‘Sorority Row’

During the last year, millions have watched Audrina Partridge do battle with the terrifying duo of L.C. and Lo on “The Hills.” Now, the 23-year-old aspiring model/actress is reportedly preparing to face down an enemy even more evil than reality television.

Our horror-heavy friends over at Bloody-Disgusting are reporting that Audrina has joined the cast of “Sorority Row,” a soon-to-shoot remake of the 1983 cult flick “The House on Sorority Row.” She joins previously-announced leads Briana Evigan (“Step Up 2: The Streets”) and Rumer Willis (“The House Bunny”) for the film, which will mark the first high-profile effort from director Stewart Hendler.

The film’s official plot synopsis reads as follows: “When five sorority girls inadvertently cause the murder of one of their sisters in a prank gone wrong, they agree to keep the matter to themselves and never speak of it again, so they can get on with their lives. This proves easier said than done, when after graduation a mysterious killer goes after the five of them and anyone who knows their secret.”

The original film served as an ambitious whodunit for horror fans, featuring college babe carnage and a cane-wielding killer. Some “Hills” fans, undoubtedly, will hope Audrina plays the role of the character whose original fate ended with a decapitated head in a toilet bowl.

“Sorority Row” is scheduled to begin shooting in Pittsburgh next month, and follows in the footsteps of such recent girls-in-terror remakes as “Black Christmas” and “When a Stranger Calls.” Audrina had previously begun work on her acting debut “Into the Blue 2,” and recently shot a cameo for the new Jerry O’Connell sitcom “Do Not Disturb.”

Produced by up-and-coming “Twilight” studio Summit Entertainment, “Sorority Row” will most likely hit theaters in late 2009.

Do you think Audrina has what it takes to become an actress? Or should she stick to playing herself?
