CANNES: Victoria Justice Starring in High-School Comedy

Victoria Justice (“Victorious”) and Eden Sher (“The Middle”) will star in high-school comedy “The Outskirts” with shooting starting in New York this summer.

The film was developed by New York-based BCDF Pictures, with Brice and Claude Dal Farra producing; exec producers are Lauren Munsch and Brian Keady from BCDF Pictures, and Victoria Bousis from Bousis Films.

Red Granite International is handling international sales at Cannes under the title “Cool Girls.”

Ashley Rickards, Peyton List, Avan Jogia, Claudia Lee, Katie Chang and William Peltz are also starring. Peter Hutchings (“Rhymes with Banana”) will direct the film from a Blacklist screenplay written by Dominique Ferrari and Suzanne Wrubel.

Justice and Sher play best friends who have suffered years of torment under the thumb of the school’s alpha female and hatch a plan to unite the outcasts of the school.

BCDF’s previous films include “Higher Ground,” “Liberal Arts” and “Bachelorette,” starring Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan, Rebel Wilson, James Marsden, and Adam Scott. “Bachelorette” hit #1 on the iTunes chart within 48 hours of its digital premiere and became the highest grossing multi-platform title on VOD at the time.

Justice is repped by UTA and Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum Morris & Klein. Sher is with APA, Kritzer Levine Wilkins Griffin Nilon, and Skrzyniarz & Mallean.
