Chloe Moretz has been keeping busy lately, clearly determined to separate herself from the rest of the child acting pact. She’s played a hit-girl, a vampire and gun-slinging teenager.
The young actress is in negotiations to play a zombie opposite in Maggie, a film which tells of a father (Paddy Considine) living in a zombie apocalypse who stills loves his daughter (Moretz) even though she is a zombie [Variety].
Interesting twist to a quickly-tiring subgenre. Considine played an oddly similar role in Jim Sheridan’s brilliant In America, while Moretz seems to be enjoying playing a little crazy, as she’s also in line to star alongside Julianne Moore as the titular telekinetic in a Carrie remake.
Henry Hobson, a commercial director, is set to make his feature debut, working with a budget around of $10 million. The film will sell at Cannes and is set to begin production in September. One hopes this small thriller-drama can add some flavor to the zombie cinema.
What do you think of Moretz? How big of an adult actress future will she have?

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
