Renee Olstead is best known for playing nice Catholic girl Madison Cooperstein on the ABC Family drama The Secret Life of the American Teenager, but she’ll soon be taking on a very different kind of role for a new indie horror project. Olstead recently signed on to play Kaitlin in The Midnight Game, a movie about the dangers of mixing teenagers and witchcraft.

Directed by A.D. Calvo and written by Rick Dahl, the film also stars Deborah Twiss (Kick-Ass), Shelby Young (The Social Network), Valentina de Angelis (It’s Kind Of A Funny Story), Spencer Daniels (Start Trek), Guy Wilson (Little Black Book), Nedra McClyde and Robert Romanus, who you may remember as the ticket scalper Mike Damone in Fast Times At Ridgement High.
The Midnight Game is currently shooting in Connecticut. It’s expected to release sometime in 2013.
