Chloe Moretz in Talks to Reunite with Kodi Smit-McPhee for ‘The Wilderness of James’
Chloe Moretz might be reuniting with her ‘Let Me In’ co-star Kodi Smit-McPhee for upcoming indie drama ‘The Wilderness of James’ for writer and first-time director Michael Johnson — that is, if she can clear her very busy schedule.
According to Collider, Chloe Moretz is in talks to star in ‘The Wilderness of James’ with Kodi Smit-McPhee. The pair starred together in 2010′s ‘Let Me In,’ the remake of the Swedish horror drama ‘Let the Right One In.’
Like that film, ‘The Wilderness of James’ is a coming of age story, this time taking place in Portland — the land of bicycles and hipsters who put birds on things. Or not. We get all of our information about Portland from ‘Portlandia.’ The film follows a young boy who is coping with the recent loss of his father.
‘The Wilderness of James’ is set to begin production next month, but Moretz is currently at work on Kimberley Peirce’s remake of ‘Carrie,’ followed immediately by reprising her role as Hit Girl in ‘Kick-Ass 2,’ which is being helmed by Jeff Wadlow. If ‘Wilderness of James’ can hold off for a little longer, they might be able to snag the young actress, making for a pretty darn cute reunion with Smit-McPhee, but you know, minus all that blood and gross dead people stuff.
