Victoria Justice is headed to the outskirts…
The 21-year-old half-Puerto Rican actress/singer, who will topline MTV’s new drama Eye Candy, will star in the female-centric comedy The Outskirts alongside Eden Sher.
Directed by Peter Hutchings for BCDF Pictures, the film tells the story of two best friends who, having suffered years of torment under the thumb of their high school’s alpha female, decide to unite their school’s other outcasts to start a social revolution.
The screenplay was written by Dominique Ferrari and Suzanne Wrubel and appeared on last year’s Black List.
In addition to Justice and Sher, the film’s cast also includes Ashley Rickards, Peyton List, Avan Jogia, Claudia Lee, Katie Chang and William Peltz.
Shooting will begin this summer in New York.
