Paramount developing pic for Miranda Cosgrove

Studio hires Emma Forrest to pen film for 'iCarly' star

Paramount has inked a deal with British author and screenwriter Emma Forrest to develop a feature for teen television sensation Miranda Cosgrove.

Cosgrove, who toplines Nickelodoen TV’s hugely popular “iCarly,” is one of Viacom’s more valuable assets. Her move into features comes as Par tires to rev up youth-oriented MTV Films and Nickelodeon Movies.

Forrest will rewrite the project “How Can You Do This to Me?” Storyline revolves around a teen of divorced parents whose life is turned upside down when her parents decide to make another go at being a couple.

Gil Netter and Brad Weston are producing.

Landing on Variety’s Top Ten Screenwriters to Watch list in 2009, Forrest has written several scripts, including “Liars” and Jeff Buckley biopic “Becoming Music,” which was optioned by Brad Pitt’s Paramount-based shingle Plan B.

Forrest became a working journo in high school, penning a column for the London Evening Sun.

Forrest is repped by WME.

Andy Marx and Andrea King were the original scribes of “How Could You Do This To Me?,” and sold the pitch to Paramount with Cosgrove attached. They later did two rewrites.
