LOS ANGELES, June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Fans of the popular Candlewick Press children's book series Judy Moody now have the opportunity to play the iconic title character as "Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer" makes its way to the big screen.

Smokewood Entertainment, producers of the Academy Award-winning film "Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire," director John Schultz ("Aliens in the Attic") and Julie Ashton Casting are conducting a nationwide search for an 8-10 year old girl to play 'Judy,' the exuberant, funny, hair-challenged and independent 3rd-grader.  

Based on the characters from the popular books series—12 million copies in print in 23 different languages—the feature film centers on Judy, her younger and very annoying brother Stink and their adventurous Aunt Opal as they search for an exciting, not bummer summer.  Production commences in Los Angeles in August, with a summer 2011 release date planned for the family film.

If you know a "DOUBLE RARE!" young girl who could be Judy, visit www.JudyMoodyTheMovie.com for more details.  Submissions are due by June 30.
