Chloe Moretz to Play Famous Sticker

Chloe Moretz is on an adaptation roll. The 13-year-old actress has spent the year starring in movies that were adapted from comic books (Kick-Ass), other movies (Let Me In), and historical fiction (Martin Scorsese's upcoming Hugo Cabret), but with new Universal Pictures project Emily the Strange, she'll face her biggest challenge yet: playing a character made famous on a sticker. Dour, teenaged Emily was conceived in 1993 as sort of a proto-Daria, and soon became a counterculture icon spanning merchandise, clothing, and comic books. If this makes it easier for Paul Giamatti to fund his dream project Kilroy Was Here, so be it. [Deadline]
