With free time from Heroes, the actress will star alongside Julia Roberts in Fireflies in the Garden.

From there, Movie Fanatic reports that the 18-year old actress has signed on to play the title character in I Love You, Beth Cooper, a teen comedy produced by Chris Columbus.

As Beth Cooper, Panettiere will once again hold pom poms as a hot cheerleader who is the object of a nerdy valedictorian's obsession. The duo embarks on a series of misadventures after he proclaims his love for her in his graduation speech.
