EMILY THE STRANGE Gets A New Writer; Chloe Grace Moretz Still Attached
We'd assumed this one had fallen apart as it had been a long time since we'd heard anything from it, but according to The Wrap it's still on track with new writer Kealan O’Rourke on board..and Kick-Ass 2's Moretz still set to star as the titular character.
According to The Wrap, Kealan O’Rourke will rewrite Emily the Strange for Universal, with Chloe Grace Moretz starring as the goth girl from the Dark Horse graphic novels. Mirror Mirror scribe Melisa Wallack wrote a previous draft of the script. Created by Rob Reger and his company Cosmic Debris in 1993, Emily the Strange has become an internationally known icon for "individualism, female empowerment, and do-it-yourself style". The character has graced everything from T-shirts, dresses, and underwear, to toys, guitars, and school supplies. She'll be best known to CBMers from her series of comic books of course, and Dark Horse Entertainment’s founder and president Mike Richardson will produce the film adaptation.
