Kirsten Dunst joins Chloe Moretz in Hick

Chloe Moretz

Kirsten Dunst and Chloe Moretz will star together in an adaptation of Andrea Portes’ novel Hick .

Moretz is tipped to play the lead character of a 13-year-old Nebraska girl who runs away from home for the bright lights of Las Vegas – and gets more than she bargained for.

Though Dunst’s role has yet to be confirmed, it seems likely that she’ll play Glenda, a concaine-snorting pick pocket who takes the young runaway under her wing.

Which will be a nice shake-up to the routine for the usually squeaky clean former Mary Jane. Dunst can next be seen in All Good Things with Ryan Gosling, and has just shot the adap of Jack Kerouac’s novel On The Road with Garrett Hedlund.
