Chloe Moretz Is Emily The Strange

Back in 2008 it was announced that Universal Pictures was adapting the Dark Horse comic Emily The Strange. Mike Richardson the producer of Hellboy and Hellboy II is producing with Darkhorse Entertainment. While I'm not familiar with the comic's history I do know of the cultural influence the brand did in the 90's. Deadline reports Chloe Moretz has been cast as Emily. Hopefully this means Universal has directors in mind and might have some sort of script in place. Chloe Moretz is slowly becoming more of a cultural icon than her peers. Choosing more risky adult oriented roles in films like 500 Days of Summer, Kick-Ass and Let Me In. Instead of playing it safe like fellow actresses her age do (ex. Dakota Fanning). Moretz is also in talks to take the lead role in Hunger Games.
