After several years in development Chloe Moretz (Dark Shadows, Let Me In, Kick-Ass) is still attached to star as Emily the Strange for Universal. Now Kealan O’Rourke has been hired to do a rewrite on the script, per The Wrap. He’s written and directed several shorts, including ‘The Boy In The Bubble’.
Melisa Wallack (Mirror Mirror, Dallas Buyers Club) had written a prior adaptation of 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.
