Chloe Moretz

It looks like Chloe Moretz may be wearing red to prom, buckets and buckets of red. Deadline is reporting that MGM has formally offered the role of telekinetic teen, Carrie White, to the "Hugo" star.

Earlier this week, reports claimed that after looking at several young actresses, the competition for the role in the Stephen King remake had been narrowed down to Moretz and Haley Bennett. Deadline claims that if the Moretz deal goes through, producers will quickly begin the hunt for a psychotic mother to foster the young, bullied psychic.

Moretz has been known for darker roles throughout her short career. She quickly earned fame after playing a foul-mouthed assassin in "Kick Ass" and a deadly tween vampire in "Let Me In." She'll be seen next in Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows."
