The film, which will be released in theaters on October 10, 2014, follows young Alexander through the mishaps of a terrible day for his family after he wishes they all would experience the same troubles he does.
Oxenbould was picked after a lengthy search.
Arteta’s credits include helming the CW’s The Carrie Diaries, as well as the films Cedar Rapids and Youth In Revolt.
