Victoria Justice has been cast in the upcoming Paramount comedy Fun Size, Variety reports. The film will be directed by Josh Schwartz (“Chuck,” “Gossip Girl”) with a script from Max Werner (“The Daily Show”).
Justice, best known as the star of the Nickelodeon series “Victorious,” will play the lead, marking her first major big screen role.
The project has been described as a cross between Superbad and Adventures in Babysitting. Set on Halloween, it follows the adventures of a teen girl (Justice) who loses her little brother while Trick-or-Treating.
Last month, Paramount opened a casting call to search for actors for the roles of the younger children.
Though it’s unconfirmed, it’s likely that Fun Size will target an October 2012 release.
