Chloe Moretz is Emily the Strange

From DHD – Universal Pictures has acquired the rights to Dark Horse Comic’s Emily the Strange, and Chloe Moretz, the most in-demand teenager in Hollywood right now, is attached to play the title role.

Most of you know Chloe Moretz as Hit-Girl from Kick-Ass – if not, you’ll know her soon enough as the female lead in the Let the Right One In remake, or for her role in the upcoming feature adaptation of Hugo Cabret, directed by none other than Martin Scorsese.

Emily the Strange was created by Rob Reger and his company Cosmic Debris in 1993 and is licensed in 35 countries.

The feature will be produced by Dark Horse’s Mike Richardson, and Reger will exec produce along with Keith Goldberg. “When I first met Chloe I knew I found my Emily,” Reger said. “She really identifies and understands the character, and has what it takes to bring her to life.”
