‘Kick-Ass’ Star Chloe Moretz Lands Lead Role In ‘Emily The Strange’ Movie
  |  @   |  

The Dark Horse Comics title, Emily the Strange, has a feature film adaptation on the way, and an actress has been chosen to take on the lead role.

It’s been announced that Chloe Moretz, who made waves for her turn as Hit-Girl in Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass and is getting ready to strike fear as a centuries old vampire girl in the Let the Right One In remake, Let Me In, is now attached to star as Emily. The young actress has been skyrocketing to fame since playing the ultra-violent Hit-Girl, landing the mentioned roles as well as parts in Martin Scorsese’s Hugo Cabret and five others in various stages of production. She’s also set to reprise her role in the planned Kick-Ass 2.

The movie adaptation of Emily the Strange comes from Universal Pictures, with Dark Horse’s Mike Richardson producing and comic creator Rob Reger (who knew Moretz was the girl as soon as he met her) executive producing along with Keith Goldberg.

Emily the Strange was originally created in the early ’90s by Reger, Matt Reed, and Nathan Carrico for use on stickers to hand out at concerts and skateboarding shops, and has since gone on to grace everything from t-shirts to soda to guitars and nail polish. In 2005 she made her comic book debut for Dark Horse, which has also been joined by novels aimed at young adults.

No details are known on where the storyline may go or who might direct, but for now a star has been found.
