As you know, Chloe Moretz recently signed on to play the title character in director Kimberly Pierce’s remake of “Carrie”. The actress, out promoting “Dark Shadows”, tells MovieHole.net that she’s going to have to take a bit of a vacation after the film because of how exhausting she imagines it’s going to be playing the telekinetic character at the center of Stephen King’s book. Moretz also speaks about the full-on audition she had to do for the movie.
As it seems, Chloe is slowly becoming a fashionista! In another interview she told that she will be designing her own dress for the infamous prom scene in “Carrie”! She also informed that she starts work June 1 in Toronto, “and right now she’s just doing a lot of really amazing pre-production.” She’s a worker bee!
“I’m actually building my own dress and kind of going really deep into it, and I’ve never gone so deep into a role before,” says Chloe, presumably talking about the prom dress Carrie wears in the film’s third act. “Yeah, it’s cool, it’s a lot of work. Fun, but a lot of work.”
“I might be making my own dress,” Moretz said. “One of my ideas for the character was to actually go and make my own dress, and I’m actually using my friend’s old drapes and making my own dress, and I’m going to sew it and everything, and I’m actually going to go out and wear it for a few weeks. I’m sure you guys are going to get some great, lovely photos of me walking down the street in some weird A-line thing, but it will be good. It will put me in there.”
“De Palma’s movie is absolutely amazing. Kim is actually really good friends with De Palma, and they’re talking about the movie and they’re good friends, so we’re taking a lot of his notes,” Moretz said. “But what we’re actually doing is we’re taking the book and we’re breaking the book down and we’re putting a lot of elements of the book into our story, so it’s more of like a ‘Black Swan’ version of it. So you really see the mythology of the character and you really see everything going on with Carrie. It’s darker.”
And another ‘Dark Shadows’ interview! Watch the following video to find out what Chloe thinks about her character in ‘Dark Shadows’, Caroly Stoddard, as well as what she has to say about working with Johnny Depp and her involvement in Tim Burton’s ‘Dark Shadows.’
Chloe Moretz on Johnny Depp: Johnny Depp as Barnabas, I can’t say enough amazing things about him. He is one of the coolest and most humble guys that I’ve literally ever met. And he goes out of his way to come in every morning and be like, “Hi, how are you? Are you ok? How was your weekend?” He goes out of his way to be abnormally nice to you (laughs). On top of that, I can’t say enough amazing things about his acting. With ‘Dark Shadows,’ it’s Johnny Depp mixed with Tim Burton so it’s the most amazing vampire I’ve ever seen.
Chloe Moretz on Tim Burton: Not only is he hands on, he asks you what you want and what you want to have in the character – and he breaks it down with you. He breaks down the look, not even just the look, her soul, who she is, what she is, what she’s doing, what she’s thinking about. He breaks down every little thing. For instance he’ll be like, “Chloe, I’m thinking about this, what do you think?” Now if you don’t like that, it’s totally fine, just tell me what you want and we’ll do that. But here’s my idea, lets collaborate, lets make this special, lets make this our thing.” It’s not his way or the highway. He’s special, he’s Tim Burton!
JustJared.com has recently posted an exclusive clip from Chloe’s latest project ‘Hick’! In the video Blake Lively and Chloe Moretz carry out a scheme to rob a convenience store. Check it out!
The movie centers around small-town teenager Luli (Moretz) who “escapes to Las Vegas, leaving behind her alcoholic and abusive parents. Armed with her smarts, a pistol and pocket money, she hitchhikes her way west. Along the way, Luli crosses paths with Eddie (Eddie Redmayne), an unstable rebel with questionable motives and Glenda (Blake Lively), a cocaine-snorting drifter on the run.”
Hick, based on the critically acclaimed novel by Andrea Portes, will be released in theaters and VOD on May 11.
I’ve also added some new stills to the photo gallery, don’t forget to take a look!
Brand new interviews with Chloe which had been made in order to promote her the newest project ‘Dark Shadows’ surfaced the net. In the video Chloe and Bella Heathcote talk kissing Johnny Depp, meeting Johnny for the first time, working with Michelle Pfeiffer their characters, weirdness of Carolyn, The Seventees, fashion and set scene, and ‘Carrie’ remake. Be sure to check it out!
Here it is, the red-band trailer for Derick Martini’s adaptation of “Hick”. The story follows Luli (Chloe Moretz), a 13-year-old Nebraskan girl, and her rough life of crime and seduction on the road after she runs away from her neglectful parents. Taken in by Glenda (Blake Lively), a hard-living grifter, the two take Las Vegas by storm, guns in hand. Eddie Redmayne, Rory Culkin, Juliette Lewis and Alec Baldwin also co-star in the adaptation which is slated to hit UltraVOD on May 8th and heads to select theaters starting on May 11th at the beginning of the summer.
As far as I’m concerned, I can’t wait to see it. I’m curious how Chloe managed her role (and I have no doubts about it!) but the critics aren’t impressed by the film nor Chloe Grace. As one critic wrote when the film debuted at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival: “‘Hick’ is an even worse film than ‘Kick-Ass,’ and a potential [Chloe] Grace-Moretz career-killer.” We’ll see.
