I’d like to wish Chloe a very 17th Happy Birthday!
Check out this video from Sundance: Q&A with Chloe, the rest of the cast, director Lynn Shelton, and others involved in creating Laggies.
We Live Film was lucky enough to attend the World Premiere screening of “Laggies” at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
The World Premiere took place on Friday, January 17, 2014 at the Eccles Theater in Park City, Utah.
This Q&A featured Keira Knightley, Chloe Grace Moretz, Lynn Shelton, Sam Rockwell, and several others who were involved in the making of this film.
Plot: A woman stuck in permanent adolescence lies to her fiancé about going on a retreat and spends the time hanging out with friends instead.
Chloe sat down for an interview with Barbara Chai of WSJ while at Sundance this weekend to discuss her new film Laggies. She also mentions her recently announced project, The Library. Read the related article at WSJ.
I’ve also added a few captures from the interview to the photo gallery!
I’ve added pictures of Chloe appearing at the Sundance Film Festival premiere of her new film Laggies today (Friday, January 17, 2014). She posed for pictures alongside her co-stars Sam Rockwell, Keira Knightley and Mark Webber, among others. Chloe looked adorable in her dress and I love her hair!
Broadway has reported that Chloe is set to start in the world premiere of The Library this spring. Congrats, Chloe!
Broadway.com – Up-and-coming film star Chloë Grace Moretz will make her off-Broadway debut as the survivor of a school shooting in the world premiere of Scott Z. Burns’ The Library this spring. Directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Steven Soderbergh, The Library will run in The Public’s Newman Theater March 25 through April 27. Opening night for the drama is scheduled for April 15. Additional casting will be announced shortly.
After Caitlin Gabriel (Moretz) survives a deadly shooting at her high school, she struggles to tell her story to her parents, the authorities and anyone who will listen. But there are other narratives that gain purchase in the media and paint her in a different light. The Library asks us to examine our relationship to the truth and the lies that claim to heal us.
“I wanted to write a play about the stories we tell each other in the face of calamity—the pretty lies and the brutal truths. This is something Steven and I have discussed over the last decade while making movies—What is the value of the truth? What is the cost of a lie? How does a story drift as it moves through time?” said Burns, in a statement. “I am grateful for Steven and Chloë’s collaboration—and we are all grateful that The Public Theater has given us a home. I can think of no better frame for what we are attempting than The Public.”
It has been announced that Chloe’s upcoming project co-starring Jamie Blackley, If I stay, will be released this year!
MTV reports – “If I Stay,” the big-screen adaptation of the literary tearjerker of the same name by Gayle Forman, has scored an official release date. The film will hit theaters August 22, starring Chloë Grace Moretz in the lead role of a teenage girl caught between two worlds.
For those not in the know, “If I Stay” is the story of Mia, a 17 year-old gifted cellist with an adoring family and a bright future who loses everything in a brutal car crash that kills her mother, father, and brother. Untethered from her body at the time of the accident, Mia finds herself in limbo with a terrible choice to make: let go, and move on to whatever comes next; or stay, and learn to live in a world in which the three people dearest to her are gone.
The story follows Mia as she wanders invisibly through the halls of the hospital where her body lies comatose, observing her loved ones sitting vigil by her bedside and thinking back on the life she might be leaving behind.
The film is an interesting change of pace for Moretz, who usually gravitates toward edgier fare and roles that require a hint of madness. After playing a child vampire in “Let Me In,” the “Kick-Ass” franchise’s foul-mouthed Hit Girl, and the latest big-screen incarnation of unhinged telekinetic Carrie White, the actress will be going in a new direction with Mia.
Mia is vulnerable, thoughtful, deeply in love with her boyfriend Adam (Jamie Blackley), and passionate about music. Among other things, Moretz had to learn to play the cello for the part. But with Mia’s decidedly dark decision — death, or life — at the story’s center, Moretz’s history of playing girls who find deep strength in the midst of unimaginable torment should have prepared her well for the challenges of a quieter, more emotional role.
“If I Stay” also stars Mireille Enos and Joshua Leonard in the roles of Mia’s parents, and Liana Liberato as Kim, Mia’s best friend. Look for more on the movie as we approach the release date in August.
