Chloe Moretz Will Be Emily The Strange
She may only be 13 years old by Chloe Moretz is racking up more iconic roles than most actors see in a lifetime. After impressing us with Kickass and a turn in (500) Days Of Summer and with Let Me In on the horizon, word has reached us that Moretz has signed on to play Emily The Strange.
Dark Horse entertainment has been trying to get a film together for years, making the announcement as far back as Comic Con 2008 (where incidentally Moretz was originally considered for the role).
Emily was originally conceived by Rob Reger when he was designing T-shirts and stickers back in the 1990s but she became such a smash with gothy teenagers everywhere that she became an overnight sensation.
While there’s no writer or director formally attached just yet, the Hollywood Reporter mentions that the plot will chart the punk Goth girl’s origins and that of her four cats. Watch this space for more details.
