Paramount Pictures Films Halloween Movie at Duffield Road Home

'Fun Size' will feature Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice

The buzz started earlier this week when a string of approximately 20 unlabeled trailers pulled onto Sulgrave Oval and set up shop. Neighbors questioned the sudden traffic, but it all started to make sense when they started spotting trailers and trucks that read "Paramount Pictures, Los Angeles, CA."

Now, people walk by the Duffield Road home, an offshoot of Sulgrave Oval, and stop to stare. A security guard meets them and chats. Others drive by slowly, gawking at all the equipment. If you drive down the road and stop near one of the trailers, beware the security guard staring at you from her car.

Fun Size stars Nickelodeon starlet Victoria Justice and takes place during Halloween. According to the Greater Cleveland Film Commission, Justice is a sarcastic teenager forced to take her little brother trick-or-treating. While they're out Justice loses her brother and it's a race to find him before mom gets home.

The security guard at the home said he heard that Johnny Knoxville would be starring in the film as well, but with the recent death of his friend Ryan Dunn, he wasn't sure if that was still the plan. Representatives from the Greater Cleveland Film Commission could not confirm, and neither could Paramount publicist Heidi Falconer.

The home is owned by Craig Cohen, but he was on his way out the door when we arrived and did not return a call.

Filming mostly takes place at night, since the movie is about trick-or-treating, so no one was around when we were there. We asked Falconer how long crews would be on site, but she was not able to provide that information.

Tell us what you see while you're out there, and send us your pictures! We'll feature them on the site, along with any comments you have. And keep checking back as we learn more about the production.

I can't even imagine having a movie shot from inside my home! How cool would that be?!

I bet they'll have lots of trick-or-treaters this year!

I talked to Craig Cohen tonight and he's excited to tell me more about what it was like to have the movie filmed at his home. Look for a follow-up next week!
