Paramount's reboot of its Nickelodeon film label is getting into high gear, with family comedy "How Could You Do This To Me?" on the runway to be one of the first projects to take off.

The studio has hired journalist-turned-novelist-turned-screenwriter Emma Forrest to whip the script into fighting shape as a vehicle for Miranda Cosgrove, the star of Nickelodeon Network's hit TV show "iCarly" who is trying to transition to the big screen.

Originally picked up as a pitch by Andy Marx and Andrea King, the story centers on a teenage girl, who feels that the divorce of her parents has actually improved her life. When her mom and dad when begin to rekindle their relationship, the girl tries to break them up.

Gil Netter and Brad Weston are producing.

Forrest, repped by Wme, wrote "Liars (A to E)," a romantic comedy from Miramax that was to have starred Kat Dennings and Rebecca Hall. »
