“Kick-Ass 2” actress Chloe Moretz may just be the busiest teen in Hollywood right now. In addition to her ass kickery in the upcoming superhero sequel (out August 16), she has a bevy of projects in the works, including the big-screen adaptation of Gayle Forman’s young-adult novel “If I Stay” and the Kristen Stewart-, Juliette Binoche-starring “Sils Maria.” It was the latter that Chloe opened up about to MTV News’ Josh Horowitz.
“’Sils Maria,’ it’s a really cool film,” Chloe enthused. “I’m actually starting that really soon. I get to go to Switzerland…and Leipzig in Germany.” (We can only assume it’s no coincidence Chloe is traveling to the land of Swiss chocolate with “Chocolat” star Juliette. Use that knowledge wisely, girl…)
And if the early casting announcements left you a little vague on the particulars of this primo project—written and directed by Olivier Assayas—Chloe’s got all the deets:
“I only have a couple scenes with Kristen, but my main stuff is with Juliette,” she explained. “And it’s this kind of really cool world where the whole script is basically written like a play, and you’re watching a play, basically. You’re watching us rehearse for a play. Basically what it is is my character is the equivalent of all these young stars that have gone crazy. But what if they were crazy and still did amazing work and still got hired and they were like huge stars but were crazy partiers? So that’s basically the character I’m playing, that she has all this bad press, but she shows up to her job and is really due diligence and just does everything and is really good at her job, so that’s pretty much my character. And Juliette plays this older actress, who is a great actress but she’s older, and it’s kind of the clash between the two worlds of older actors and younger actors.”
Sounds intriguing…and timely.
