Chloe Moretz definitely knows how to get into character. The 16-year-old star of the upcoming Carrie remake transformed her look for the “dark arts” issue of Dazed & Confused magazine, looking worlds away from her usual bubbly, blonde self.
On the cover, the up-and-coming teen dons a short, Joan Jett-esque black wig and offsets her startlingly edgy new look with thick eyeliner and a steely gaze. The actress also switches up her style in a tweed-and-silk Chanel jacket and a Meadham Kirchhoff ruffled shirt.
But maybe it’s just a sign of growing up? During a previous interview with Glamour, the young actress revealed that she’s been “wearing a lot of all black” recently.
“I really love Winona Ryder — her look in the time right after Mermaids and Heathers, that first year of Johnny Depp and her,” she told the magazine. “They were the best couple ever — they’re like Romeo and Juliet!”
In a recent roundtable for Carrie, Moretz told reporters that she had to reach deep to find the right emotions to tap into to play her dark character of the bullied telekinetic teen with an intense Bible-thumping mom (played by Julianne Moore). The original 1976 version of the film starred Sissy Spacek as the titular teen and Piper Laurie as her mother.
“Everyone has something inside them that, if they want to bring it up every day, they could cry about it, they could be sad and live their life in just complete terror of your own feelings,” she explained. “And that was really what I had to bring up was all my vulnerabilities. All my vulnerabilities that I, even at fifteen, had learned to deal with and to put away and go, ok this is how you’re human and this is how you live everyday life without crying and stuff.”
The iconic prom scene, in particular — in which Carrie has a bucket full of pig’s blood dumped on her after she is crowned prom queen as a cruel joke — was particularly nerve-wracking to film, she said.
“It kind of felt like when you were about to drop off of one of those droppy rides, which is always scary because you know something is going to happen,” she said. “And I’m like, this is so crazy right now. And [I grabbed] Ansel Elgort’s hand (the actor plays jock Tommy Ross)… that wasn’t supposed to happen. We grabbed each other’s hands because we were both so scared.”
Carrie star Chloë Moretz has signed on to star in the big-screen adaptation of Sam Munson’s 2010 novel November Criminals for Hitchcock director Sacha Gervasi. The novel tells the story of Addison, a D.C.-based high school senior who becomes obsessed with investigating the murder of one of his classmates while applying for colleges. Moretz will play the part of Phoebe. The lead role has yet to be cast.
“Mirror Mirror” writer Melisa Wallack wrote a previous draft
Kealan O’Rourke will rewrite “Emily the Strange,” a movie based on the Dark Horse graphic novels that will star Chloe Grace Moretz as the titular goth girl, according to two individuals with knowledge of the deal. Melisa Wallack (“Mirror Mirror”) wrote a previous draft of the script, which is in development at Universal.
Rob Reger and his company Cosmic Debris created the character in 1993, and it has since become popular worldwide in myriad forms, from books to clothing to entertainment. Dark Horse Comics has released several graphic novels related to Emily, and Dark Horse Entertainment’s founder and president Mike Richardson will produce the film adaptation.
Dark Horse’s Keith Goldberg will executive produce the film with Reger.
O’Rourke has previously written and directed several shorts, including ‘The Boy in the Bubble.” That is being turned into a movie, one of three other projects O’Rourke has set up across town. He is also developing “The Houdini Box” for Chernin Entertainment and “Bolivar” for Warner Bros.
He is represented by Paradigm, manager Jairo S. Alvarado and attorney Robert Szymanski.
