It looks like Michigan has lost another movie to Cleveland, OH.
According to the Greater Cleveland Film Commission, Fun Size, the upcoming feature film directorial debut of Josh Schawrtz who has produced TV shows such as The O.C. and Gossip Girl, is currently scouting locations around Cleveland.
According to Production Weekly, the movie was originally scheduled to be filmed in Michigan this spring, but it looks like the production has instead chosen Cleveland.
The film stars Nickelodeon’s Victoria Justice, who currently stars in her own show Victorious and is about a girl who loses her little brother while trick-or-treating on Halloween.
“This is the third film that will be shooting in Cleveland in the next several months, and we could not have achieved this without the quick actions of our public partners at the Ohio Department of Development, the State of Ohio, Cuyahoga County and the City of Cleveland,” said Greater Cleveland Film Commission Executive Director Ivan Schwarz. “Each of these projects is coming to Cleveland because of the city’s incredible resources, locations and people.”
In addition to Fun Size, The Avengers and Boot Tracks, starring Matt Dillon, will also be shot in Cleveland this year.
Stay tuned for more information about the movie and its filming locations. As huge fans of Josh Schwartz, we’re already excited about this one!
