Chloe will be filming The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea this month in New Orleons. While promoting Magic City, Jeffrey Dean Morgan spoke briefly about his upcoming projects and mentioned the movie along with The Rut which Chloe stars in the movie with him too:
Which film are you doing next?
MORGAN: I’m doing a movie called The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea in April. That will be the next movie, and that’s with Chloe Moretz and Jessica Biel. It’s a great, great, great, great script. I’m very excited to do it. We’ll be in New Orleans, doing that. And then, next Fall or Winter, or whenever we finish doing [Season 2], I think I’m going to do a movie called The Rut. I just keep my head down and keep working.
Relativity Media has pushed back its untitled Farrelly/Wessler laffer nine months, moving the film from April 13 to Jan. 25.
Studio, which had not yet launched a promo campaign, did not disclose why it had delayed the release but a source close to the situation said the pic’s not yet completed and still in post.
Film features a series of raunchy, interconnected stories, and the star-studded ensemble cast includes Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Halle Berry, Johnny Knoxville, Gerard Butler, Anna Faris, Richard Gere, Uma Thurman, Naomi Watts and Emma Stone. Peter Farrelly and Charles B. Wessler are producing with Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh and GreeneStreet Films’ John Penotti.
The comedy will now open against FilmDistrict’s crime-actioner “Parker” and Sony’s “Battle of the Year: The Dream.”
A trio of wide releases are set for April 13: Lionsgate’s “Cabin in the Woods,” Fox’s “The Three Stooges” and FilmDistrict’s sci-fier “Lockout.”
Check out a mention about Chloe on Punk’d in Jason Goldberg’s interview. He mentions that her Punk’d is unbelievable!
Did you have a favorite prank, or one that you’re particularly proud of this season, and is there someone that you’re just dying to pull a prank on?
GOLDBERG: Well, there are people right now that we continue to aim at, that we’re very careful about. We take non-disclosures very seriously, so it would be very hard for me to tell you someone that we’re trying to get, mainly because we’re actively always trying. Whether we’re in season or out of season, we’re always figuring out ways. But, this time it’s about the episodes rather then the bits. If you look at a show like Dianna Agron and Zac Efron and Snooki, and you look at that entire journey in that show, it just kills. Bam Margera’s approach into punking is so different than anyone else’s. What he does to Tyler the Creator, [Tyler] Posey (from Teen Wolf) and Ronnie from Jersey Shore is phenomenal. It’s some of the best stuff I’ve ever seen.
In each one, even the ones we miss, it’s super-compelling. We’re up against each other, trying to think, and we make mistakes and those mistakes show. I can tell you that, on the ones that we miss, we know the mistakes we made. Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth (from The Hunger Games) kill. They’re really fun, really good and really, really in it. They are so many. Chloe Moretz is amazing. Her Punk’d is unbelievable. Zac Efron was probably one of my favorite of the year. There are some we just shot that I’m not privy to talk about yet, but are humongous and amazing. There’s a big surprise on the show that’s coming on the night of the MTV Movie Awards. It’s the biggest names that we’ve ever struck on the show, and it’s unbelievable.
There was a concentration this year on who we got and the things that we did to them. It’s certainly an exhausting process, but I’m really proud of all these shows. You’ll see that some hosts are better than others, but the ones that you may not look at as great were super-vulnerable. Justin [Bieber] said it best. Here’s a guy who plays in front of millions of people, on any given night. When he came into our office, he was much more on edge, doing this show, then playing in front of 35,000 to 55,000 people.
When you come in and you’re looking at 12 cameras, and you’ve built for this moment, and you’ve spent a week psychographing someone and it’s on, there’s not one person I know that’s been behind-the-scenes, calling the shots on this show, that doesn’t feel physically sick in their stomach over what the hell’s going to happen and whether he or she is going to make us, if it’s going to work, and what’s going to happen. You have to think on your toes. As a testament to most of these hosts, they came prepared. When they first came, they weren’t sure whether or not we were going to do something to them, but that wasn’t the point. The point was, “What would you do with this format?,” and some people pulled pranks in a way that we just wouldn’t have seen. I think it works for those reasons, and I’m stoked about a lot of them.
YAY! Chloe has officially been offered the role as Carrie in “Carrie” movie earlier today.
fter meeting and reading a group of young actresses for Carrie, MGM, Screen Gems and director Kim Peirce have made their decision and made the formal offer today to Chloe Moretz. If negotiations work out, she’ll play the title role in the remake of the Brian DePalma original that was based on the 1974 Stephen King bestseller. She’s expected to play the shy high school student Carrie White, who is raised by a nightmarish religious fanatic mother, and comes to grip with devastating telepathic powers just as she reaches puberty. She eventually uses those gifts for lethal means when fellow classmates use the prom as an excuse to humiliate her before the entire school in a parable about bullying. Sissy Spacek played the character in the first movie, with Piper Laurie playing her mother, and Amy Irving, Nancy Allen, John Travolta, Betty Buckley and William Katt rounding out the cast. Both Spacek and Laurie got Oscar nominations for their work in the 1976 film.
The studio and Peirce have been meeting with actresses for the past two weeks. Word all along was that while names like Dakota Fanning were circulating, Peirce and the studio had an eye on Moretz. The studio denied it at the time, but what actually happened is, Moretz didn’t meet with Peirce until last weekend. She got the job immediately. Moretz, who first came on with performances in Kick-Ass, (500) Days Of Summer and Let Me In, is at the top of the crop of young actresses. Coming off Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, her next major film is the Tim Burton-directed Dark Shadows with Johnny Depp. She’s repped by WME and 3 Arts. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa wrote the script and Kevin Misher’s producing.
Insiders said that once they make Moretz’s deal, they will focus on landing the psycho mom and supporting cast and they will shoot this year.
Chloe is one of the finalists for the remake of Carrie:
It seems that after nearly a year of being in development the Carrie remake is now in the heart of pre-production. Kimberly Peirce, director of Boys Don’t Cry has been attached to the project for almost three months now, but one major component still missing is an actress for the title role. We’ve heard rumors before, including ones about Megan Fox and Hailee Steinfeld, but there has been no official word. Today Vulture apparently got their hands on the two finalists for the part.
The site says that both Chloe Moretz, best known for playing Hit Girl in Kick Ass, and Haley Bennett, who will be seen alongside Ryan Gosling in Terence Malick’s Lawless, are finalists for the lead in Carrie. The two actresses have beat out a lot of big names thus far, including Dakota Fanning, Emily Browning, Bella Heathcote, and Lily Collins, all of whom read for the director. But just because Moretz and Bennett are now the big names being looked at, doesn’t mean they always were: the report says that Shailene Woodley, who showed off her incredible talent in last year’s The Descendants, was offered the character but turned it down. What’s interesting about Moretz and Bennett is that there is quite a large age gap between them. Moretz is only 15 years old while Bennett has reached the age of 24.
But there isn’t only one big role inCarrie; there’s also the part of the tortured girl’s mother than needs to be cast. Vulture says that Jodie Foster has been approached about playing the unhinged woman while Julianne Moore is also being considered.
I’m thinking that the people in charge of casting somehow don’t get what Carrie is about because you can’t cast a pretty young actress in the part. The character is a tortured, meek girl who is constantly bullied by everyone in her life. That’s not exactly a part that should be highlighted by glamour.
