Movie shoot takes over part of downtown Cleveland

CLEVELAND — Hollywood has come to downtown Cleveland to shoot a new movie starring Nickelodeon teen star Victoria Justice.

Work on “Fun Size” is closing off parts of the city’s Warehouse District this week, mostly during the overnight hours. Filming is expected to continue tonight into early Wednesday.

The movie also features comedian Chelsea Handler and “Jackass” star Johnny Knoxville.

WJW-TV reports some scenes are being shot inside the Fortress Lounge, a downtown nightclub that’s in a building co-owned by Jim Behrens. He told the television station the production has brought money to Cleveland and is helping the local economy.
