Chloe Moretz has signed up to seven films in the next couple of years including the new adaptation of Stephen King’s Carrie and while she has been a strong part of many ensemble casts we’re starting to see her emerge as a leading actress.

We’ll see her next in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows but there’s an altogether darker tone to another film she has coming out this year, Derick Martini’s Hick. I enjoyed Martini’s 2008 ensemble drama Lymelife but here we see the director hanging his story of a troubled teen who wanders away from her dysfunctional life in the vague direction of Las Vegas on Moretz, and this first look trailer suggests that she’s more than up to the task.

Eddie Redmayne and Blake Lively make up two of the people she meets on her journey and nothing we see here suggests this will end well for anyone involved. Looks great, can’t wait to see it.

Time to pop round to the Yahoos for tea and thanks.
