Oscar-nominated child actress Abigail Breslin is close to star in Walden Media's "Nim's Island" while landing lead role in HBO Films' "American Girl."

With an Oscar nomination in her hand in such a young age, looks like the road has become way smoother for Abigail Breslin to undergo indeed. Yes, the child actress is reportedly in the brink to ink deals to star opposite two-time Oscar winner Jodie Foster in "Nim's Island" while going to topline "American Girl" for Picturehouse and HBO Films.

A Walden Media-financed fantasy, "Island" is adapted from the book by Wendy Orr and Kerry Millard which centers on a young girl who accompanies her scientist father to an isolated island in the South Pacific. When the man goes missing at sea, she communicates electronically with a person she imagines as a character from a book who in fact turns out to be a reclusive author.

Filming on the project is scheduled to begin this summer for 20th Century Fox to distribute under the Fox Walden banner. Jennifer Flackett and Mark Levin have both been tapped to direct from script written by Joseph Kwon and Paula Mazur who is also producing alongside Cary Granat.

As for "American Girl", Breslin will play the lead character of Kit Kittredge whose story becomes the center of the flick as she tries to help save her family as it struggles through the Depression. Production is due to start June 4 this year with Julia Roberts, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, Marisa Yeres, Stephanie Langhoff, and Lisa Roberts Gillan all producing.
