Wonder how soon she'll get to... dive in. *puts on sunglasses*
While most of the details still have yet to surface, it's also being reported that screenwriter Richard Curtis (who penned films like Love Actually and Notting Hill) is in talks to write the script.
This trailer for the Chloe Moretz-fronted dystopian film The 5th Wave features our heroine surviving a gritty world after an alien invasion: getting separated from her family, finding an assault rifle and some rations, trying to find and save her little brother, and meeting a couple of cute boys along the way (and kissing at least one of them).

remake has a new release date, October of this year, and that was probably a good idea. Scary things and October just make sense and all indications point to Carrie
being very, very scary. For instance, this new poster featuring Carrie's mom played by Julianne Moore
. I'll be under my covers if anyone needs me.

The girl playing the titular star of Kimberly Peirce
remake, Chloe Moretz
, has provided a little insight into how she's approaching her new, iconic role. One part of her research: not conducting any research, just diving right into Carrie's head. She's also saying that her version of Carrie White will head to an even deeper, darker, mentally-unstable place, similar to where Natalie Portman
headed in the psycho-thriller Black Swan
. And cue all the guys hoping that Moretz will share a lady love scene with Mila Kunis
But seriously, this Carrie might be even more screwed up than the original.
Yes. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Yes.
Rumor has it
that Julianne Moore
, who played a fabulously dysfunctional mother in Boogie Nights
, is thisclose
to playing the mother of Carrie White in Kimberly Peirce
's upcoming remake starring Chloe Moretz
. While the status (as of this writing) is that the actress is "in talks," some are saying this is all but a done deal. And this means we will get to watch Julianne Moore shame Chloe Moretz and her dirty pillows -- and then drive her to commit telekinetic murder. Who isn't going to want to watch that
This Makes Sense
Everyone familiar with the movie (and the Stephen King
knows that the crux of the story lies in the relentless bullying of a teenage girl by her peers. And while bullying has existed since organic creatures developed the ability to judge each other, things are slightly different nowadays. People are (finally) a lot less tolerant of it, and those who try to write it all off as "kids being kids" are seen as negligent, trying to ignore a very big and enduring problem. And now, writer and director Kimberly Peirce
, who is remaking Carrie
, will try to keep the anti-bullying message alive
I Guess I Can't Argue With That
You know Chloë Moretz
from her role as Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass
as well as her more recent job, acting alongside Asa Butterfield
, but you soon may see her drenched in blood. She's in talks to star in Kimberly Peirce's
(Boys Don’t Cry) Carrie
has the first official look at Tim Burton
's film adaptation of Dark Shadows
, and it's probably fair to say we're a little bit less worried about Johnny Depp's appearance now. A little bit. You might recall the earlier set pictures
we posted in which Depp's Barnabas Collins looks, well, like exactly how Tim Burton would interpret Barnabas Collins if he were a gothic, deranged mime-clown. Or Michael Jackson. (Wow, imagine if Tim Burton did a Michael Jackson biopic? Michael Jackson would probably have dug that sooooo much. Anyway ... ) But here, the look is considerably more toned down, and according to EW, he is supposed to be taking on more of the "aged little boy look" of the original Barnabas, Jonathan Frid
. You'll also see Michelle Pfeiffer
as Elizabeth Stoddard Collins, Helena Bonham Carter
as Dr. Julia Hoffman, and Chloë Moretz
as Carolyn Stoddard. EW has a comprehensive rundown of all the characters. Click through to get a bigger look at the pic.

Get ready to get your goth on, everyone. Universal is adapting Hot Topic mainstay/Dark Horse title Emily the Strange for the big screen. And while this project has been floating around (perhaps sulking, sullenly) for about three years now, an actual screenwriter has been attached and it looks like this might be on its way to the development stage. Melisa Wallack, who wrote the script for Tarsem Singh's untitled Snow White project (the one with Lily Collins and Julia Roberts), will be the scribe for Emily the Strange, which is set to star Chloe Moretz. Okay, we're kind of interested now.
and let it be known
The much-anticipated film adaptation of the campy 1960s horror series Dark Shadows
is set to be released just about a year from now. May 11, 2012, to be precise. This is the latest Tim Burton
collaboration which is why we consider it "much-anticipated," but also because of this cast: Helena Bonham Carter
(natch), Chloe Moretz
, Eva Green
, Michelle Pfeiffer
, and Jackie Earle Haley
. It's also been years since this project was first announced, so it's good to finally know that we're going to get to see this soon.
Emily the Strange
, the marketing graphic turned fashion statement turned Dark Horse
comic book character was optioned for a feature film back in 2008, but the major hurdle in the project was finding an actress to play the titular heroine. One that wouldn't upset the, by definition, difficult to please young fans of Emily.
According to Deadline
, the creator of Emily the Strange, artist and skateboarder Rob Reger
(who made her up to adorn Santa Cruz Skateboards
' boards in 1991) has finally met his Emily: Chloë Moretz
, the actress behind Hit-Girl, and Hollywood's current go-to tween girl for subversive stories.
Says Reger: "She really identifies and understands the character, and has what it takes to bring her to life."
