Victoria Justice is finally getting her first movie! And, if you're young enough to know her from Nickelodeon shows like "Zoey 101," "iCarly" or tele-movies like "The Boy Who Cried Werewolf" this is exciting news! Either that, or you're a big fan of Josh Schwartz, who created "The O.C." and "Chuck" and is making his directorial debut with "Fun Size," another coming-of-age, high school comedy.

Victoria Justice is finally getting her first movie! And, if you're young enough to know her from Nickelodeon shows like "Zoey 101," "iCarly" or tele-movies like "The Boy Who Cried Werewolf" this is exciting news! Either that, or you're a big fan of Josh Schwartz, who created "The O.C." and "Chuck" and is making his directorial debut with "Fun Size," another coming-of-age, high school comedy.

Justice was cast last year in the coveted role of Wren, who gets stuck babysitting her little brother on Halloween, the same night when the hottest guy in school is throwing a party! But things really go to pot when Wren loses her little brother and starts a night of adventure in order to find him. So, fine, it sounds like a pastiche of several other coming-of-age high school comedies, but, then, "Superbad" didn't sound so original either based on the plot alone. And hey, hasn't it been a while since we've had a high school comedy centered around the proverbial "party of the year" where kids get into car accidents? Er, with Chelsea Handler in it, I mean?

While the trailer doesn't exactly show why former "The Colbert Report" writer Max Werner's script ended up on 2010 The Black List, it's inclusion does offer the promise that the film could be better than the sum of the trailer's parts. We should get a few more looks at it before Paramount Pictures releases "Fun Size" on October 26th, which hopefully will reveal better one-liners for Jane Levy, who plays Wren's best friend. [ONTD]
