LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies have picked up the comedy “Camp Couture,” to star budding teen sensation Emma Roberts, the niece of Oscar winner Julia Roberts.
The fish-out-of-water story follows a spoiled, trendy teen (Emma Roberts) who is forced by her parents to go to a “regular” camp filled with misfits instead of the famed elite fashion camp known as Camp Couture that she would like to attend.
The story is based on an original idea by Emma’s mother, producer Kelly Cunningham. Emma’s father is Julia Roberts’ older brother, Eric.
The screenplay is being written by Ian Southwood, who just wrapped a three-year contract with Walt Disney Animation.
The 14-year-old Roberts stars in Nickelodeon’s hit series “Unfabulous.” She also is filming “Aquamarine” for Fox 2000 and is attached to star in the teen fantasy comedy “Bras and Broomsticks.”
In addition, she recently completed her first album for Columbia Records, which will be released in the summer as a soundtrack for “Unfabulous.”
