Melisa Wallack, who wrote the script that became Relativity’s high-profile Snow White project, has been drafted by Universal to pen Emily the Strange, writes THR.
Chloe Moretz (Dark Shadows, Let Me In, Kick-Ass) is still attached to star as the punky goth cult figure created by skateboarder Rob Reger.
Dark Horse Entertainment has been developing the character as a movie project since 2008, setting it up at Universal in 2010.
The story line is being kept under wraps, although the aim is to tell the origin of the punk and gothic figure and how she comes to gain her abilities that fuse technology and imagination. The story will also focus on her relationship with four cats: troublemaker Sabbath, schemer Nee-Chee, imaginative Miles and leader Mystery.
