Kirsten Dunst, Chloe Moretz to Star in "Hick"

Movie News

In my opinion, Chloe Moretz gave one of the performances of a lifetime as the diminutive hero Hit Girl in the film version of "Kick Ass."  On top of that Moretz has proven to be an extremely talented young actress, giving scene-stealing turns in "(500) Days of Summer" and "Let Me In," so any film that she joins up on, I have my eye on it.

According to The Playlist, Kirsten Dunst and Moretz are teaming for the coming-of-age drama, "Hick."

Based on Andrea Portes' novel, which the author herself adapted for the big screen, the story follows a 13-year-old Nebraska girl who flees her alcoholic and abusive parents and heads out on the road. The world outside her door proves just as cold and uncaring, including the adult figures that come into her life like a crooked guy who eventually rapes her.

Dunst will play another of those figures, a cocaine-snorting hard-living grifter who takes the girl under her wing in an effort to shield her from some of the rougher aspects of life.

I think this film has potential, mainly because of the talents of Dunst and Moretz. The two should have great on-screen chemistry. Dunst has given some great performances through her career, and this one will be no different, especially due to the subject matter.

This will be just another good role for the young actress Moretz, who has really put together an impressive resume in her brief career.

Derick Martini directs and shooting kicks off in New Mexico early next year.
