Chloe Grace Moretz, Jack O’Connell to Star in Bonnie and Clyde Movie

Chloë Grace Moretz and Jack O’Connell are attached to star in the Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow story “Love Is a Gun” with Spanish helmer Kiké Maillo directing.

Endeavor Content is handling international sales and will present the project to buyers at the American Film Market, which opens Wednesday in Santa Monica, Calif. CAA is co-repping the film domestically with the producers.

Marissa McMahon and Ashley Schlaifer of Kamala Films (“A Private War”) are producing alongside Sean and Bryan Furst of Skybound Entertainment. The project is based on Jeff Guinn’s “Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde” and written by Sheldon Turner (“Up in the Air”) with revisions by Johnny Newman.

Parker and Barrow gained renown during the Great Depression as they committed multiple bank and store robberies from 1931 to 1935. They are believed to have killed at least nine police officers before they were slain in Louisiana.

The duo became widely known again in 1967 with Arthur Penn’s film “Bonnie and Clyde,” starring Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. The film was nominated for 10 Academy Awards and won two for Estelle Parsons in the supporting actress category and Burnett Guffey for cinematography.

We are excited to reintroduce the iconic story of Bonnie and Clyde,” said the producers. “Their story remains ubiquitous in popular culture across the globe, yet few in this generation know the details of their intimate love affair and the circumstances that led to their notorious crime spree that captured the imagination of the world in their time. Kike, Chloë and Jack are completely in sync about the character-driven approach we will be taking, and we feel lucky to have a creative team of this high caliber leading us forward.

Production is scheduled to start in early 2019. Moretz recently starred in “The Miseducation of Cameron Post” and can currently be seen in Luca Guadagnino’s “Suspiria,” starring Dakota Johnson. O’Connell starred in Angelina Jolie’s “Unbroken” and Jodie Foster’s “Money Monster.”

Maillo’s feature length directing debut, “Eva,” starring Daniel Brühl, premiered at the 2011 Venice Film Festival and was nominated for 12 Goya Awards, winning three including best new director. His most recent film is the action-thriller “Toro.”

Moretz is repped by WME and T Squared Entertainment and O’Connell is repped by CAA and Conway van Gelder Grant.

Louis Vuitton’s 2018 Charlie’s Angels

   

OK, so we all recognize the opening lines of Charlie’s Angels — or at least those of the savvy 2000 cinematic adaptation that recast the crime-fighting trio of hot babes from the 1970s TV series into a power brand with considerably more feminist appeal, especially for a younger generation more familiar with Alex, Dylan, and Natalie from the movies than with Jill, Kelly, and Sabrina from television. “They had a real sisterhood between them, and at the same time they were kicking ass,” says Laura Harrier, explaining the Angels’ enduring allure as well as the inspiration for this InStyle shoot, which brings the actress together with her friends in real life, Chloë Grace Moretz and Sophie Turner. “And the Destiny’s Child song from the first movie was epic,” adds Harrier.

The relationship between those three girls was the strongest thing about them,” says Turner, who first met Harrier at a Vuitton fashion show and Moretz at a Met Gala after-party. As ambassadors for Vuitton, the three women have formed bonds of their own, with an easygoing camaraderie that has not gone unnoticed by the house’s artistic director, Nicolas Ghesquière. Reflecting on the zeitgeist of today’s newly awakened Hollywood, the designer says they represent exactly the types of fierce, outspoken individuals who inspire him. (He appears here as their elusive Charlie.)

I’m lucky because I get to watch two sides of them — the side where they portray different characters, like a romantic heroine and then a serial killer, and at the same time I get to know them in real life,” Ghesquière says. “I love the fact that these young women are not afraid to cross boundaries and express themselves in many ways.

For such a prominent designer who has long been revered as an innovator — at Balenciaga for 15 years and now at Vuitton for five — Ghesquière has always allowed an element of popular culture to enliven his work, sometimes making abstract references to his love of music and sports and other times nodding more obviously to science fiction.

And while he is not primarily a designer for the red carpet, he is very much attuned to that world and fascinated by its characters. He asked to meet Harrier just before she appeared in Spider-Man: Homecoming and came to know Turner, of course, through her role as the not-to-be-underestimated Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones. Ghesquière has known of Moretz the longest, ever since her performance as a potty-mouthed preteen vigilante in Kick-Ass. Speaking on the phone a few days before the Venice première of Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria, one of three films she has out this fall, Moretz described how Ghesquière custom-made a poetic, floor-length floral silk gown for her to create a specific impression.

He wanted to see me, in his words, in a more romantic light that could lend itself to the landscape of Venice, and to offset the movie, which is this really dark, twisted horror film,” she says. “It feels like a special little moment.

A Parker Palm Springs Weekend for Chloë Grace Moretz

   

Having crossed the threshold from child star to lead actor, Chloë Grace Moretz is exercising her celebrity to inspire the next generation to shape cultural change. But even she needs a weekend off the grid now and then.

Chloë Grace Moretz sits with her legs folded like a pretzel in the master bedroom of the Gene Autry Residence at Parker Palm Springs. Sipping an iced coffee, black, she pages through the day’s edition of The New York Times as the glam team goes to work.

I can’t start my day without it,” the Georgia native says. Her political interests run deep: Moretz stumped for Hillary Clinton and in 2016 became the youngest speaker ever to address the Democratic National Convention.

At 21, she has 27 awards, 41 additional nominations, and 50 motion pictures under her belt, including three in post-production at press time. Her latest to hit theaters, The Miseducation of Cameron Post (a Sundance grand jury prizewinner that saw wide release in August), takes a raw look at the practice of gay conversion therapy.

Set in the 1990s, the adaptation of Emily Danforth’s eponymous 2012 novel chronicles the experience of Moretz’s character at a treatment center that aims to pray the gay away. “This is a prolific modern issue,” Moretz says, noting its use is not specific to any one religion, socioeconomic class, or race. “It is only illegal for minors in 14 states; 77,000 kids in the next five years will be subjected to conversion therapy.”

Miseducation, directed by Desiree Akhavan, was a passion piece for Moretz. “Having LGBT people in my family, being an advocate has always been a very large part of my identity,” she says. “This movie is by queer people — for the community by the community — and that’s really special. I’ve never felt more proud of a project.

Moretz appears in Luca Guadagnino’s Venice Film Festival–nominated Suspiria, which opens in U.S. theaters next month. She also stars in the forthcoming animation Red Shoes & the 7 Dwarfs, Neil Jordan’s thriller The Widow, and a new animated version of The Addams Family (opening October 2019) alongside the voices of Charlize Theron, Oscar Isaac, Nick Kroll, and Allison Janney.

After her Palm Springs Life cover shoot (September 2018), Moretz took time to discuss her films, her mentors, and… her potential run for Congress.

What’s your ideal Palm Springs weekend?
For years, we’ve been going out to Palm Springs as a family. We usually go out there when it’s really, really hot. It’s 110 in the daytime and you just sit by the pool and sweat all day.

The snowbirds are going to think you’re nuts. Why come when it’s hot?
It’s just kind of fun. You get the resorts to yourself — at a place like the Parker, which is usually kind of crazy, [you’re there] without everyone in the way.
