Nickelodeon has announced the star-studded cast of their new movie SWINDLE. The cast includes Jennette McCurdy and Noah Munck from iCarly, Ariana Grande from VICTORIOUS, Noah Crawford and Chris O'Neal from HOW TO ROCK and Ciara Bravo from BIG TIME RUSH. Excited? We sure are!
SWINDLE is based on the popular children's book by Gordon Korman. You might have heard of him, as he's the author of other popular chapter books, such as the ISLAND trilogy and book two of THE 39 CLUES. In SWINDLE, main character Griffin is double crossed by a malicious swindler, who lies to Griffin about the real value of his million dollar baseball card. Griffin is determined to get his baseball card back. He soon assembles a group of four classmates to take down the evil collector and the action and adventure awaits!
The movie is currently in development, as they've just begun filming in Vancouver. SWINDLE will be released on Nickelodeon's own television network in 2014.
