Less than a month after announcing she was dropping out of her movie projects, Chloë Grace Moretz is back in the movie-making game. Back in September, Moretz told The Hollywood Reporter, "I pulled the plug on all my movies because I want to reassess who I am and find myself within my roles again." But now Moretz, formerly of Carrie and Let Me In, knows exactly the right part for finding herself, and that role is as a murdering or murdered ballerina. Variety reports Moretz has been cast in the Suspiria remake. Based on the Dario Argento–directed 1977 Italian horror classic, the movie takes place in a ballet academy where the students have to worry about more than perfecting their pirouettes — mainly maggots and reanimated corpses. The remake, which is set to come out in 2017 to mark the original's 40th anniversary, also stars Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton.
