Who Should Play Eloise?

First of all:
There's going to be a feature-length film version of Eloise in Paris, based on the beloved children's book all about the precocious and privileged little six-year-old New Yorker, Eloise.

The movie will be written and directed by Charles Shyer, co-writer of such beloved movies as Father of the Bride and Baby Boom. What's more, his writing partner will be his 19-year-old daughter, Annie Meyers-Shyer, who he has with his screenwriter wife Nancy Meyers (who helped Shyer write the aforementioned movies, who is responsible for The Holiday, and who recently won an award).

How cute is that?
A father-daughter team writing an Eloise movie? Adorable. However, I can't quite get over the fact that the two screenwriters decided to hyphenate their kid's last name so it is Meyers-Shyer.

Now for the big question:
Who should play Eloise? The books have already made it to ABC as TV movies, but this is the big screen. Come on, expert Buzz recasters, start naming Eloise possibilities!
