One of my favorite young up-and-coming actors in Hollywood is Chloe Moretz, who absolutely blew my mind as young Abby in Let Me In (in theaters October 1). Best known as “Hit Girl” in Kick-Ass, Moretz has just landed the lead role as the title character in Emily the Strange, the live-action adaptation of the popular Dark Horse comic. The franchise was created by Rob Reger and his company Cosmic Debris in 1993 and it is licensed in 35 countries. “When I first met Chloe I knew I found my Emily,” Reger said. “She really identifies and understands the character, and has what it takes to bring her to life.” Emily the Strange is a rail-thin 13-year-old whose clothes are as black as her hair and as dark as her adventures.
