Chloe Moretz to don fangs again for Dark Shadows

04.01.2011

I wouldn't think you could be typecast as "tiny terrifying vampire girl" by Chloe Moretz is taking a step in that direction. After a horrifying turn in Matt Reeves' underappreciated LET ME IN, Moretz is heading back to a similar genre for DARK SHADOWS.

She joins Johnny Depp and Tim Burton in the project based on the '60s soap opera. She'll be playing the daughter of Elizabeth Collins Stoddard (played by another Burton vet, Michelle Pfiefer). Moretz had been hinting she was about to join a "huge" project, but many people were thinking that it was THE HUNGER GAMES, a role she was being considered for at the time.

But that part went to Jennifer Lawrence, and Moretz will cut her teeth in DARK SHADOWS instead. She's also been attached to the rumored KICK-ASS sequel, but that film seems like it's starting to descend into development hell. She's also just wrapped HUGO CABARET with Martin Scorsese. A bright future, this young one has. Yes, you should say that in a Yoda voice.

What do you make of DARK SHADOWS? Burton, Depp and vampires all seems a bit...expected, but will this turn out to be a "huge" as Moretz says?

Extra Tidbit: Barely fourteen and 40 IMDB acting credits already? Not bad.

This movies cast keeps getting better and better. The character of Carolyn Stoddard is 18 when the show started and prone to getting drunk and dating bikers, werewolves and at one time was stalked by a Frankenstein's Monster type. By the end of the show she had married the anti-christ. I wonder if they're going to have to tone all that down because Chloe Moritz is 15, I hope not.

I'm seeing Chloë Grace Moretz as

the next Natalie Portman. If she can stay grounded and choose her projects carefully, there's going to be a Best Actress award in her future.

Also,

It may have been bad taste, but as an April Fools joke (just to get the people on this site riled up) you should have said that Chloe Moretz had joined the cast of the latest Roman Polanski film. Juxtaposed with the picture above, the shit would have hit the fan.

Alice in Wonderland clearly proves that Burton and Depp can do no wrong. I'm sure this will be just as good!

I think Alice clearly proved that they can do a lot of wrongs and in fact haven´t done anything interesting in quite a while..

I'm down

I'm not familiar with the source material, but I'm kind of looking forward to this project. And after the phenomenal job that she did in "Let Me In," I'm really kind of excited for this now. She's an actress that could be seriously successful into adulthood and is one of the more impressive child actors I've seen recently.

She's already rockin' that old-school Hollywood movie-star look.

As for Dark Shadows, I'm rather looking forward to it because unlike some of Burton's recent rumored projects, he and Depp have been trying to get it up and going for a few years now, I wanna think not so long after "Sweeney Todd" turned out to be such a critical hit. Not to give the man a free pass for his lesser work, but he's made enough classics to keep me optimistic.
