Movie News: Chloe Moretz' Next Thriller; New 'Mortal Instruments' and Red-Band 'This Is the End' Trailers

Apr 02, 2013

Kick-Ass 2 / Carrie

Dark Places: Still just 16 years of age, Chloe Moretz is negotiating the challenging territory between child star and adult actress. Her latest move is a likely team up with Charlize Theron in the big-screen adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s best-selling Dark Places. If negotiations are successful, Moretz would play a key role in the mystery thriller, which is being adapted by Gilles Paquet-Brenner (Sarah’s Key), who will also direct. Moretz will play starring roles in Kick-Ass 2 and Carrie later this year. [Deadline]

Romeo and Juliet: Movie and TV stars routinely appear on Broadway -- Tom Hanks and Alec Baldwin are currently starring in separate shows -- but it’s not as often that actors go from Middle-earth to the Great White Way. Orlando Bloom, who gained reknown from the Lord of the Rings trilogy, will make his Broadway debut opposite Condola Rashad in a new, interracial version of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet; the play begins previews in August with opening night set for September 19.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Trailer: Whereas the previous teaser established the atmosphere, the new trailer for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones seeks to cram as much weapon-wielding, ass-kicking action as possible into its brief running time. Lily Collins stars as a teen girl who is drawn into a mysterious world of angels, demons and warriors; the movie is out on August 23. [Collider]

This Is the End Trailer: The guys behind the apocalyptic comedy This Is the End released a hilarious fake trailer for Pineapple Express 2 yesterday in honor of April Fools' Day, but the new red-band trailer for the real movie is no laughing matter. Well, actually it is, but the red band is for some explicit bloodshed, as well as extreme profanities and a very violent Emma Watson. James Franco and Seth Rogen lead the all-star cast; look for the movie in theaters on June 12. [The Film Stage]
