Chloe Moretz continues to kick ass in Hollywood.
The 13-year-old, best known bashing in thugs faces as Hit-Girl in Kick Ass, just signed on to play the title role in the upcoming film adaptation of the Dark Horse comic book Emily The Strange. The series was created by Rob Reger and his company Cosmic Debris. Reger will be executive producing the flick, along with Keith Goldberg. There's no plot details yet, but Moretz' character is being described as an "odd by stylish young lady."
"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."
Currently, the young actress is quite busy. She's shooting the Martin Scorsese-directed Hugo Cabret and is also starring in the October release Let Me In, along with the upcoming drama The Fields. All of that on top of speculation that she'll reprise her role as Hit Girl in the yet-to-be-greenlit Kick Ass 2.
Moretz will be successful -- even though most of her fame rests on the fact that she's a total bad-ass who knows how to stab dudes in the forehead. But c'mon, seriously. If she can play that type of character as a 12-year-old, she shouldn't have an issue channeling her sweet and innocent side.
