'Gossip Girl' star Jessica Szohr has signed up for horror comedy 'Love Bite'.

The US actress - who left the TV show earlier this year - will star with 'Skins' hunk Luke Pasqualino and 'Ergaon' actor Ed Speleers in the movie about a group of friends who decide to lose their virginity when a werewolf starts preying on local virgins. The film -which is set in Scotland - will be helmed by 'West Is West' director Andy de Emmony with shooting set to begin on October 9.

Robert Bernstein and Douglas Rae of Ecosse Films and 'Slumdog Millionaire' co-producer Paul Ritchie are producing in association with Notting Hill Films.

Jessica's other movie roles since leaving the TV show include 'Owned', where she will star as a high school student who causes trouble by trying to blackmail her neighbour with a compromising video when she joins a new school only for him to become popular as a result.

Jessica's other big screen credits include 'Fired Up' and 'Piranha 3-D' where she teamed up with former adult movie star Riley Steele, Kelly Brook, Jerry O'Connell, Elizabeth Shue and Richard Dreyfuss for a sexy remake of the 1978 cult killer fish film.
