Chloe Moretz to star in The Rut for director Karyn Kusama
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
So far, it’s hard to find anything to complain about with the career of young Chloe Moretz. She had a good role in the hit DIARY OF A WIMPY KID, was the breakout star of KICK-ASS, is featured in the upcoming LET ME IN, is starring in Martin Scorsese’s HUGO CABRET and has now signed on to star in the intriguing THE RUT. In her latest film, she’ll play a young girl that is forced to utilize hunting and survival lessons her dad taught her when he goes missing. JENNIFER’S BODY director, Karyn Kusama, will be directing.
I love the idea of putting a young girl in the wilderness out on her own, but there a couple different ways they can go with it. From just the brief description, it sounds like a twist on CASTAWAY (which I love) so I’m hoping Kusama keeps the story grounded in reality and gives Moretz the chance to shine.
