According to Deadline, Universal Pictures has acquired rights to the Dark Horse comic "Emily The Strange", and Chloe Moretz is attached to play the title role of the odd but stylish young lady. The franchise was created by Rob Reger and his company Cosmic Debris in 1993 and it is licensed in 35 countries.
Pic will be produced by Dark Horse's Mike Richardson, and Reger will be exec producer along with Keith Goldberg.
"When I first met Chloe I knew I found my Emily," Reger said. "She really identifies and understands the character, and has what it takes to bring her to life."
