Victoria Justice Lands Lead in 'Fun Size'
TV creator Josh Schwartz will be making his feature-directing debut with the Paramount teen comedy.
Victoria Justice has nabbed the coveted leading role in Fun Size, Paramount’s edgy coming-of-age comedy which sees TV creator Josh Schwartz making his feature-directing debut.
Schwartz is producing with his Fake Empire partner Stephanie Savage as well as Anonymous Content.
The comedic script, by Colbert Report scribe Max Werner, centers on a sarcastic teenage girl who is forced to take her little brother trick-or-treating on Halloween, then loses him and must find him before their mother finds out.
The movie became a hot-get for the teen actress set with the list narrowing down to Justice, Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass) and Jane Levy (from Showtime’s Shameless). In the end Justice, who stars in Nickelodeon’s Victorious, won out.
A spring shoot in Minnesota is being planned for what Paramount envisions to be a PG-13 project.
Justice is repped by UTA.
