Details About Noah Munck’s Nickelodeon Movie “Nicky Deuce”
The movie is based on the children’s book “Nicky Deuce” and will arrive on the Nickelodeon Channel in 2013.
Here’s a description of the movie from Nickelodeon:
Munck, who also headlines the Nick pilot Gibby, stars in Nicky Deuce as Nicholas Borelli II, a nerdy, over-protected teen who transforms into the title character. Nicholas gets caught in the adventure of a lifetime when his plans to attend math camp go awry and he is sent to spend the summer with an uncle (played by Schirripa) he never knew he had in Brooklyn, NY. A fish out of water at first, Nicholas leans on local kids to help him fit in and winds up mistakenly earning a reputation as a tough guy. When confronted with some questionable dealings, Nicky uncovers family secrets and learns that the mean streets of Brooklyn aren’t always what they seem.
Marjorie Cohn, the president of original programming and development for Nickelodeon, revealed the following about the movie:
Nicky Deuce is a comedic coming-of-age story that is uniquely Nickelodeon. Kids will love seeing Noah Munck in this new light – as culture-shocked Nicky who goes from mathlete to unlikely urban legend on the streets of Bensonhurst. Steve Schirripa not only wrote the book the movie is based on, but plays Uncle Frankie and brought in a bunch of his former Sopranos castmates to add a level of authenticity and fun to the movie.
Fernando Szew, the CEO of MarVista Entertainment, added:
Nicky Deuce is an incredible production with top-notch talent in front of and behind the camera, and we are proud to be in business with such esteemed partners as Nickelodeon and YTV. Noah Munck, The Sopranos cast members and the incredible Rita Moreno are all bringing a ton of spirit and talent to this project, and it’s as much of a joy to produce as it will be to watch.
