Universal Pictures has acquired the rights to the Dark Horse graphic novel by Rob Reger. Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg are producing the new movie along with Rob Reger. Here's what Rob Reger told the site about Chloe Moretz's casting:
""When I first met Chloe I knew I found my Emily. She really identifies and understands the character, and has what it takes to bring her to life."
The story centers around the title character, a 13-year-old girl with a unique sense of style and behavior. A storyline for the movie wasn't revealed at this time.
No writer or director has been attached to the project. We'll be sure to keep you posted with any further details on Emily the Strange as soon as more information is made available.
