Eden Sher, Ashley Rickards, Peyton List, Avan Jogia, Claudia Lee, Katie Chang, William Peltz, Victoria Justice, Peyton List and Eden Sher will star in the high school comedy ‘The Outskirts’, reports The Wrap. Described as ‘Mean Girls’ meets ‘Revenge of the Nerds,’ the story follows best friends Jodi (Justice) and Mindy (Sher), who have suffered years of torment under the thumb of the school’s alpha female (Lee). They plan to ride out their senior year under the radar, but when they become the victim of a humiliating prank, the two hatch a plan to unite the outcasts of the school and start a social revolution.
They join forces with an affable slacker (Jogia), a girl scout with a secret (Chang) and an overachiever with dirt on everyone (Rickards): ‘We are thrilled to be working on a movie that is at the same time very entertaining and also deals with an issue like high school bullying. Rarely do we find scripts that can deliver such an important message while appealing to wide audiences.’
