Jack O’Connell, Chloe Grace Moretz And Josh Gad Attending Party Of The Century

Writer Truman Garcia Capote has been brought to the screen several times, most notably during the face-off between Capote and Infamous. The latest person stepping into the role is Beauty And The Beast’s Josh Gad, who will star alongside Jack O’Connell and Chloe Grace Moretz In Party Of The Century.

American Splendor writing/directing duo Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman have come up with the script, which takes place during the infamous Black And White Ball that Capote threw in 1966, attended by a thronging mass of people from all strata of ’60s society. Stories about what went on still resonate, though the directors have been inspired by an apparently apocryphal tale to emerge from the night.

O’Connell will play Pete, a working-class lift operator who develops feelings for Fawn (Moretz) a Hollywood ingenue who scores an invite to the party. “Our film is a delicate balance of worlds converging at a pivotal moment in time,” the filmmakers tell Screen International. “Jack, Chloe and Josh are brilliant performers who can embody these worlds while bringing the electricity and pathos required to make the story fly.” Pulcini and Springer Bergman are looking to kick off shooting later this year, and sales company Bankside will be touting the rights in Cannes.

O’Connell has been working on Scott Frank’s TV Western Godless and is attached to play Alexander McQueen for a new biopic. Moretz has November Criminals due this year and will be seen in the Suspiria remake. Gad is one of the passengers in Murder On The Orient Express, due here on 3 November.

Chloe Grace Moretz shames internet trolls

Chloe Grace Moretz is in talks to star in the remake of the classic horror film, “Suspiria,” opposite Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton, TheWrap has learned.

Luca Guadagnino, “A Bigger Splash” director, will helm the project. David Kajganich is writing the screenplay based on the 1977 film script by Dario Argento and Daria Nicolodi.

Amazon is financing and distributing the film. Swinton and Johnson have been previously attached to the project. Jessica Harper, who played Johnson’s role in the original film, will also make an appearance.

The horror film follows a young ballet dancer who attends a prestigious dance academy in Europe. However, she finds something more supernatural and sinister among a series of murders. “Suspiria” is the Latin word for “sighs.”

The film will be produced by Frenesy Film Company, Mythology Entertainment, First Sun Films and Memo Films. The producers on the project are Guadagnino, Kajganich, Brad Fischer, Francesco Melzi d’Eril, Gabriele Moratti, William Sherak and Silvia Venturini Fendi.

Chloë Grace Moretz Is Dropping Out of Future Movies

Chloë Grace Moretz has “pulled the plug” on all of her movies, the 19-year-old actress told The Hollywood Reporter earlier this week.

Chloë had previously been slated to star in the live-action remake of The Little Mermaid. That said, we’re not sure what this means for the fate of the movie, or who will take Chloë’s place. (It’s still listed on Chloë’s IMDB page, but as the movie is only announced and not yet in production, things can change. Any other not-yet-released movies listed for Chloë are in post-production.)

Chloë told The Hollywood Reporter that she had begun to take on so many projects that she started to lose sight of why she went into acting in the first place. “I want to reassess who I am and find myself within my roles again,” Chloë explained. “I’m realizing that I can slow down.

However, Chloë isn’t completely disappearing from Hollywood. She told THR that she’s turning her focus to producing, and will be working on a couple of television shows.

We’re glad to see that Chloë is placing a priority on her personal growth and emotional health. She claimed her first role at age 7 and she’s been in over 50 films. We all need to take breaks from time to time, and even celebrities sometimes need a vacation from the spotlight.

Why Chloë Grace Moretz won’t join Taylor Swift’s squad

Don’t expect to catch Chloë Grace Moretz onstage at a Taylor Swift concert anytime soon.

The Fifth Wave star admitted she was invited to join the pop-star’s entourage at some point, and while she didn’t specify how she responded, she was willing to share her thoughts on the squad craze.

They appropriate exclusivity. They’re cliques!” she told Complex for its April/May cover story, with a tone described as “exasperation.”

Asked to elaborate on receiving an invite to Swift’s celeb posse – which has included her friend Selena Gomez, and the likes of Lena Dunham, Karlie Kloss, and Cara Delevingne – Moretz simply said of the singer, “She’s a very talented person.

An outspoken proponent of gender equality, Moretz went on to explain how she’s become more willing to voice her opinions as she’s gotten older.

There were definitely moments when I was 13 or 14 and was worried about not being liked if I spoke out, but I realized that’s kind of this forced, societal feminist outlook of how women should be – they should feel sorry for speaking out,” she said.

Elaborating on her views on feminism, Moretz added, “It’s about equality – and it’s not just about women being powerful. It’s about races being powerful; genders being powerful.

Her stance on gender equality has even effected her choice of projects, and including her upcoming turn in Disney’s live-action reimagining of The Little Mermaid.

We can’t make this regressive tale in a modern world. We’re going to flip it on its head. It’s going to feel good for women and men in the sense that it’s not just appropriating feminism, and it’s not leaning on regressive stereotypes,” she said.

Kim Kardashian hits back at Chloë Grace Moretz

Kim Kardashian hit back at Bette Midler, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Piers Morgan on Monday night, after the trio dinged the reality star for posting a naked selfie.

Hey @BetteMidler I know it’s past your bedtime but if you’re still up and reading this send nudes,” Kardashian wrote, adding the hashtag #justkidding. Kardashian also called out Midler for previously sending her a gift and “trying to be a fake friend.

Later in the day, Moretz also commented on the photo, tagging Kardashian directly in a pair of tweets. “I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies,” she wrote. Moretz, who also retweeted Midler’s joke, added, “There’s a huge difference in respecting the platform that you’re given as a celebrity and ‘slut shaming,’ something I never have done and would never do.

Later in the day, Kim replied to Chloe:

Chloë Grace Moretz pushes for reforms in Miss Universe

Hollywood actress Chloë Grace Moretz has called out the Miss Universe competition for supposedly “judging women walking around in bathing suits” and suggested how it could further celebrate the lives of women.
In a series of tweets, Moretz, who starred in “Kick Ass” and “If I Stay,” said that in this day and age, the 64-year-old pageant needs to do away with its swimsuit competition.
Miss universe is still judging women walking around in bathing suits. If it’s based on confidence, why [are] we zooming in on their bodies?..

 

It’s a new time.. I think it’s time we cut the swimsuit section from miss Universe ..” she said.

For her, the pageant needs to shift its focus in vetting women based on how they speak before the public and on their “philanthropic tenacity.”
Let’s do a miss universe based on interviews and public speaking and philanthropic tenacity,” the 18-year-old actress said.
Moretz, meanwhile, praised Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, saying that she deserved the crown.
Miss Philippines deserves that she felt so genuine and real,” she said.
