Think you have what it takes to star in a Paramount Pictures produced film? Well, if you do, the company has begun the search for two leading characters in it’s Halloween comedy Fun Size; here’s your chance to shine!
The film is being described as a cross between Superbad and Adventures in Babysitting. Set on Halloween, it follows the adventures of a teen girl who loses her little brother while Trick-or-Treating.
The movie will be directed by Josh Schwartz (Chuck, Gossip Girl) and will bring a script to the table straight for The Daily Show writer Max Werner himself.
Parts to be filled include:
Albert [Lead]: 8 years old, with chubby cheeks. Albert is undeniably a strange but intriguing little boy, combining childlike ways (like love of anything sugar) with unnerving adult habits (he’s unbeatable on the video game “Aggravated Assault,” precocious, and is unflappable – even ingenious – in a crisis). He does not speak until the end of the movie.
Stuart [lead]: 16 years old. Born and raised in the United States. Stuart is of Asian, East Indian or Middle Eastern descent. Slight in build, Stuart is a kid who talks twice his size. Obsessed with sci-fi and comic books, he is the co-captain of the debate team with his best friend, Roosevelt.
