The Hollywood Reporter first reported that Martin is set to executive produce AND star in her first feature film titled Little.

And if you thought that wasn't impressive enough, she even came up with the idea for the script!


According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie is a comedy that "centers on a woman who gets the chance to relive the carefree life as her younger self (Martin), when the pressures of adulthood become too much."

Let me remind you again, she's only 13! A true legend in the making.
