Chloe Moretz To Play Emily The Strange

Hit Girl to star in live action version of Dark Horse’s goth icon

According to Deadline , the film will be produced by Dark Horse's Mike Richardson, and Reger will be exec producer along with Keith Goldberg. “When I first met Chloe I knew I found my Emily,” Reger said. “She really identifies and understands the character, and has what it takes to bring her to life.”

Emily The Strange was created by Rob Reger and his company Cosmic Debris in 1993 and the image of the dark-eyed, mightily-fringed, black-garbed girl is familiar from a vast raneg of merchandising – especially clothing – even if you’ve never read the comic.
