Eliza Taylor, star of CW's post-apocalyptic sci-fi series "The 100," gets a chance to play a normal teen girl in a new movie -- that is, if "normal" means getting mixed-up in a small-town drug ring run by a dangerous drug dealer.

Check out the trailer for "Thumper," an upcoming crime thriller that casts Taylor as a new student at a drug-ridden high school in an economically struggling California town. She soon starts hanging out with a soft-spoken classmate (Daniel Webber, soon-to-star in the Netflix and Marvel's series "The Punisher") who introduces her to a local drug dealer (played by Pablo Schreiber, from "Orange Is the New Black" and "American Gods") with a notorious reputation and a suspicious eye.

Though Taylor's character displays a typical rebellious teen attitude, there's something about herself or her past that she hasn't yet revealed. Which puts a massive target on her back.

Writer-director Jordan Ross, who worked as a segment producer on MTV's long-running documentary series "True Life," makes his feature film debut with "Thumper," in which acclaimed filmmaker Cary Joji Fukunaga (Beasts of No Nation, True Detective) is credited as one of the executive producers.

Co-starring "Game of Thrones" star Lena Headey, "Thumper," which premiered earlier this year at the Tribeca Film Festival, will be released on VOD November 7th.

synopsis:
Troubled new girl Kat Carter (Eliza Taylor) struggles to fit in with her high school classmates in a community where drugs and violence run rampant. When she is befriended by the sweet-natured Beaver (Daniel Webber), Kat realizes that the reach of the local drug ring is far deeper than she imagined. But Kat’s harboring a dark secret of her own. She soon attracts the attention of the group's leader Wyatt (Pablo Schreiber), a menacing individual who would kill to protect his livelihood. Surviving in this treacherous environment is no mean feat.
