Chloë Moretz to play Emily the Strange

In honor of Emily the Strange’s 17th 13th birthday, the beloved cartoon character is getting a physical manifestation in young actress Chloë Moretz. The 13-year old actress will play Emily the Strange for Universal Pictures and Dark Horse Comics. Rob Reger created Emily the Strange in 1993. Since then, the character has been licensed and distributed into 35 countries around the world.

Said Reger of Moretz, “When I first met Chloë, I knew I found my Emily. She really identifies and understands the character, and has what it takes to bring her to life.”

    Of freaking course it’s her. I challenge this actress to play a child at some point and see how that goes.

    • Stephanie

      She played a kid in Diary of a Wimpy Kid…

  • Nathan

    Hit Girl rules!

  • A-K87

    I think this girl is going to win an oscar within the next 10 years. There’s a lot of potential there!

    • AliciaJo

      A-K87 I think she’ll be the next Christian Bale and just be a fantastic actor but never win an oscar. Her movie choices will be too out there for the academy. I love her for it.

  • Celia

    Interesting. She’s getting cast in freakin’ everything. Hopefully she doesn’t get overworked. She’s still really young.

  • Marianne

    I hope Chloe doesn’t end up getting typecast for these “dark” roles.

  • strange!

        Haha ikr??? Even if there were open auditions, there’d be like thousands of girls trying out…. And also, you have to be able to act the character! In my opinion, it’s better to have someone who doesn’t look like the character but is a good actress rather than a look-alike who’s a bad actress.

    It looks like Chloe is becoming the next Winona Ryder/Christina Ricci–or the female Johnny Depp!

  • Wanwen

    wow.. why didn’t you make an audtion for the character of Emily the Strange? I have black long hair with bangs,black eyes and everything! I look like her!

  • JAurthur

    Man I liked her!
    Tried reading this book to my daughter and was appalled.

  • Briana

    Yes! So pumped!

  • Tom

    Go to the Youthoughtwewouldntnotice plagiarism website or boingboing and search for Emily The Strange. The character was a complete ripoff of an earlier book’s character, but the Emily creep decided to pursue legal action AGAINST THE ORIGINAL, which was published in the seventies. I hope this tanks and he chokes on it.

    • Rick

      Rob Reger is a slime-ball & a liar. Plain an simple for a lot of reasons.
      Hopefully people open their eyes and see that Emily is not about “empowerment” but about money.

  • ESP

    I wish I could have gotten the role… I am so like her. Not in looks but in character. I think I could have actually had a chance

    • Jenny

      Unless you know where to go to audition for these roles, Im audition for The Hunger Games … To be honest I dont think anybody could stand much of a chance anyway …

  • Nicole

    wow she must b stoked

  • Yumi

    When does it come out?

  • Sam

    The Hunger Games is awesome!
    Emily The Strange is too! I cant wait to see the movie!!!!
