Movie News: Chloë Moretz Talks STAR WARS Interest

With J.J. Abrams hard at work on a new STAR WARS trilogy, there are constant rumours regarding which actors will end up as part of a galaxy far, far away. KICK-ASS star Chloë Grace Moretz has been giving her thoughts on being a part of the saga.

Speaking to MTV, Moretz said, “I mean, obviously there’s interest - it’s STAR WARS. I’d kill to be a part of that franchise, but I don’t know J.J., I’ll give you my phone number. You can text me.”

Though there was a rumour floating around that, when KICK-ASS’ Matthew Vaughn was up for the directing job, he pitched a female-centric story with Moretz in the lead, it’s unknown whether there’ll be a place for her in Abrams’ story. However, the recent leaked casting list does have roles for one girl fitting the decription of "late teenage [with a] great sense of humor, also physically fit" and another "also late teens, tough, smart and physically fit". These descriptions are more than a little reminiscent of Hit Girl, so it’s entirely feasible that, should this leak be genuine, Moretz could fill either of these roles.

At present, STAR WARS: EPISODE VII is set for a summer 2015 release.

I think Chloe would be absolutely perfect in Star Wars! She can do action, she has spunk and charisma in spades. In fact, I think she was born for this. It is her destiny!!!

Chloë Grace Moretz would be a perfect breath of fresh air to the whole Star Wars Universe.

She has the years of experience as an actress, an understanding of her craft beyond her years, the charisma and aura of a Jedi or Sith and the wisdom of Yoda.

She has proven to be worthy of a leading role in Star Wars by the depth of her understanding of an emotional character, like Abby from Let Me In, but also very capable of bringing powerful action to the table via her role as Hit-Girl from Kick-Ass.

In short, Chloë would be just what Star Wars needs to revive the old magic - not to mention she would look totally awesome with a pink lightsaber!
