The 'Slut in a Good Way' star will topline Elza Kephart's thriller about a possessed pair of jeans that kills clothing store workers.

Romane Denis is set to star in Elza Kephart's slasher film Slaxx from EMAfilms and Filmoption International.

Sehar Bhojani (The Handmaid's Tale), Brett Donahue and Stephen Bogaert (It) have also joined the pic, which is slated to start shooting Tuesday in Montreal.

In Slaxx, Denis, who starred in Slut in a Good Way, Les Salopes or The Naturally Wanton Pleasure of Skin and Les pays d'en haut, will play a cashier in a trendy clothing store where her co-workers are killed by a possessed pair of designer jeans and who must stop the slaughter.

Turbo Kid producer Anne-Marie Gelinas and Patricia Gomez Zlatar, who co-wrote Slaax with Kephart, are producing.

The film is backed by SODEC, Telefilm Canada, tax credits and financing from executive producer Shaked Berenson (Tales of Halloween, Big Ass Spider!).
