UPDATE 5! Chloe Grace Moretz Preparing Herself for Star Wars: Episode 7?

chloe grace moretz

According to the actress' latest tweets right now she is watching the Star Wars prequel trilogy. One particular tweet is especially interesting... 


(September 9, 2013)
Few months ago when it was announced that J.J. Abrams will direct Episode 7 it was also revealed that Kathleen Kennedy talked to other directors including Ben Affleck and also Matthew Vaughn who may have pitched to have Chloë Grace Moretz in the lead role.

Also there were several rumors from different sources that Episode 7 will have a female lead, supported by the official character info that was released (a girl in her "late teens, tough, smart and physically fit").  

Yesterday Chloe made several comments on twitter showing that right now she is watching Star Wars: Episode 1,2 and 3. Here's what she said:




The last one is particularly interesting. I never thought that watching a movie could be productive. Could this mean that she is watching it from a professional point of view? Maybe. Surely that's one big tease from her... 

Also she instagramed this:




UPDATE 2!

(Spetember 10, 2013)
More tweets from Chloe. This time she is looking for a new sci-fi movie. Guess which one she picked.... Yep it's Serenity which happens to have a female lead. Let the speculation continues... :)




UPDATE 3!

(September 11, 2013)
Also if you missed Chloe's interview with MTV discussing Star Wars click here

And check out what she said to The Telegraph:
Thelegraph: So, the new JJ Abrams Star Wars film. There are a few rumours flying about...
Chloe: "(Smiling) Yeah, I mean I can’t really speak about it. It’s exciting and it would be a very cool thing to be a part of and I think JJ’s brilliant but we’ll see."
Telegraph: I’m going to take that as a hint.
Chloe: "(Laughing) Yeah."

So either there really has been some talks with her or she is trying desperately to get the part. 

By the way few Lucasfilm employees have also been asked to watch some of the original trilogy movies as part of their "productive work". ;)



UPDATE 4!

Hmm... Is that a joke? A Lucasfilm member and Chloe together on a screening?


UPDATE 5! (October 4, 2013)

Chloe talks Episode 7 rumors (via latinoreview):
 “No, no rumors I don’t know how they get started. But it would be great to be a part of it. I don’t think Disney doesn’t know what’s really going to happen. I don’t even think they cast the principle roles yet.”

    1. Yeah, because "hot" should be the prerequisite to landing an acting job. Wow.

    2. Have you seen any Star Wars movies at all? Acting skills are not a prerequisite.

    4. Stop trashing on Hayden. He's a good actor. He just needs a good director.

    5. @ Chad Ball

      Watch the original Star Wars and tell me that the hokey death-star council meeting (where Vader chokes the guy before being commanded "enough of this Vader!") had good acting. I don't know about you, but I saw a room full of hams.

      Keep your prequel hate to yourself.

    6. Surely not.. that scene is pure class! I'm no prequel hater either. Far from it!

      Try just about any briefing scene in the OT, particularly the Battle of Hoth and you will see some serious chumps. Kudos to Carrie Fisher for keeping a straght face.

  2. Hot and cool. Like her. She is great actress. So young and already nomiated for Odcar award.But Rachel Hurd-Wood is better actress. I hope they both are cast!

    1. You have no idea.
      1) Chloë has never been nominated for an Oscar.
      2) Moretz is better actress than Rachel.

      Delete
    2. Rachel Hurd-Wood looks like the cheap knock-off of Jennifer Lawrence.

  3. My FAN cast will be:

    Daniel Day-Lewis

    Denzel Washington OR Edward Norton

    Rachel Wood

    Elle Fanning/abigail breslin/Hailee Steinfeld

    PS I check Daniel Day-Lewis Denzel Washington and Edward Norton are all free next year.

  4. Not want her. There are better female actors out there. She is using star wars for PR stuff and in one interview on MTV she said:
    "JJ call me because i want to be part of star wars". She is so arrogant and insolent. She need good education first.
    You can watch this interview on you tube.

      She only was asked and she reply very polite. She wasn't arrogant or insolent. YOU are insolent.

    3. I agree about there being FAR better actresses for Star Wars than Chloe Moretz.

      But, hey - be careful - Moretz's fans get very, very butt-hurt unless you say she's the greatest thing ever!!!

      Delete
  5. hm, if it meant she was watching them to take notes, I don't think she would have said anything. Although I would really love to see her in the new films. "Today was productive", pretty much everybody nowadays on the internet says that as a joke when they are wasting time. I don't know, but I wouldn't look anything into this.

  6. Star Wars are family movies! May be only one sci fi family movie and best movie to watch with the whole family. And kids like her. Which means fanboys too. But i don't. I mean she is good but not that good. Sorry. And if they cast her stupid pervs will join star wars and theiy will be nightmare - fanboys and pervs is too much even for star wars.

    1. I agree.

      Jennifer carpenter is perfect for star wars. Great age and amazing actress. True quality.

    2. umm. I don't know what movies of hers you have watched..but its obviously not the ones I have seen.Actually I haven't seen many of her new movies, ive seen a lot of her older movies when she was much younger..and even when she was just a little kid, she was a great actor.but....I quess that's how it goes when your an internet troll and put down anything and everything you can online while on a strict diet of bic macs and large coke's..like putting down movies you have watched a billion times. I am not one of her fan boys, but I think she would do a great job. Too young? haha..are you kidding me? I quess you have never seen episode 1 or episode 4. She is older than the lead role in 1 and older than luke and leia were in a new hope.and is the perfect age in the stories timeline to be one of the jedi offspring., you guys are ridiculous....I bet you 700 republic credits that no matter which actor's they cast you will spend thousands on merch and movie tickets...so stfu already with the negativity

      Delete
    3. Agree Scott. Movie wouldn't be good. Not because she's too young, though.

      Because she's not good enough to carry the movie. Plain and simple.

    4. No one said she was the lead, just a potential actress in the film lol

  8. Yeh, let's do another HarryPotter...

  9. Personally I think it would be good casting. She is young enough to grow into the role in the following films and is athletic enough to pull out some awesome light-sabre fights! I hope she does get a Jedi role!

  10. I actually really like her... Great in Let me In and the first Kickass.

    That said... I don't know if I'd want her in Star Wars. Her face and personality are just so "known" to me I don't know if I could forget it was her.

  11. Amazing... all they have to do is tweet that they have watched the Star Wars films and the next thing you know it is rumoured on this website that they may be preparing for a role in the new movies...ridiculous.
    utter garbage.

    1. It's not just the tweets. If you're missing the bigger picture than it's your problem. If this is garbage for you just don't visit this blog again. It's that simple.
      When the "real news" are released you'll find them here. Until then all we could do is speculate and comment on recent rumors. That's what many people find amusing.

    2. 'Where is the real "news".' ..Why are you looking for news when there is none. This isn't news. This isn't even a rumour. It's just speculation. Are you really incapable of seeing that? It's like going up to somebody pregnant who is guessing the sex of their baby and going "WELL THERE'S NO POINT IN GUESSING BECAUSE ITS NOT REAL NEWS IS IT!?". I mean 'utter garbage', seriously? Calm down, it's not to be taken 100% seriously or anything. You're clearly missing the point. If you're not interested, then get your head out of your backside and go away. Stop whining like a petulant child..

    3. Then consider this blog for Star Wars news, rumors and speculations. If you want only news go to starwars.com.

    4. I would be willing to bet on the tweets above that Chloe is in for the show, because at this point to be wasting your time with vague information that she is hinting would be absurd behavior for a career minded professional, so I would say this speculation is more than assumption and is down right news to me. If an actor says only, "well we will just have to see" that would not be worthy of anything. But I will have say this kind of reporting is well thought out and backed up. And there is a bit more than someone just hinting at something. Good job Viral Hide!

  14. Jennifer lawrence was 20 years old when she was cast in hunger games. YES young actress sell from more than 10 years. And from there(hunger games) she is now the best and most expensive actress in the world. People WANT NEW FACES! So age is not problem. I prefer US actress. And there are many young rising stars out there. YES Chloe Grace Moretz is one option. But there are at least 10 more great 20 years old actress - Abigail Breslin work with Michael Arndt in little miss sunshine. Critics name Hailee Steinfeld next big star. JJ Abrams find Elle fanning and she is rising star too. Now she work with disney too.

    I my opinion in hollywood when one director/writter work with one actor/actress and know them(work ethic character education loyalty) he continue to work with them. So is you bet your money bet on Abigail Breslin and Elle fanning. Because in movies like star wars you need to know people. Nobody want Christian Bale problems on the set.

    ps ALl movies cast now young actress. NOT only harry poter or twilight even avengers 2 will cast elizabeth olsen. Question is are they quality. All these names that are connect with star wars are quality so star wars fans BE HAPPY!

    1. To be clear for me biggest issue is MAN leads. I am sure they will find great female protagonist and leads. There are too many right now. But male 30-40 years old leads are real problem for star wars next trilogy.

      Delete
    2. I'm interested in seeing a female protagonist in future Star Wars movies, but for Episodes 7, 8 and 9, I prefer the protagonist to be Luke's son. There should be females among the lead characters, of course, but for the main character, it's the story of Luke and his son, and how they wrap up the story of the Skywalker's, that interests me.

      Like I said, though, I'd love to see a spin-off film, or maybe a trilogy set in a different time and focusing on a different group of characters which casts a female as the main character.

  15. Eagerly awaiting Chloe Grace Moretz's agent or herself to deny these rumours.

    This site should be renamed www.starwars7rumours.com, as there is just no news of any worth here to be found.

    And yes, I will visit the official Star Wars.com website for real news when it becomes available... but will still visit here for amusement.

  16. Late teens, right? Isn't she like 13?

  17. She is 17 years old. Again Jennifer lawrence was cast on hunger games when she was 19-20 years old. 2 years margin is not margin.

    Most of the young rising quality actress are in best age for star wars. 18-22 years old. Females are not the proble. In my opinion male leads can be problem.

    ps I like idea this site to be more about talking and discussions between star wars fans. And when real news came we will talk again. I check this site every hour.

    1. Again with the hunger games example, that movie was aweful so why not use another, better example instead?

      Though yes, I agree that the age isn't a problem.

  18. I like Chloe Grace Moretz for a lead role in the new Star Wars films. I have been a fan since Episode 4 and believe she has the capability playing a well-rounded character in the films.

    Obviously any actor that gets a part in the films needs to bring forth winning emotions such as being fearful, scared, joyful, sad, angry, curious, intelligence, remorseful, etc. Not to mention being able to handle the physical aspect of the role.

    Keep in mind also, anyone taking on these roles needs to make a huge commitment for many years to come. 3 or 6 films? Maybe more? For an established actor, that is a HUGE commitment.

    We would be lucky to get her in a lead role...

    Replies
    1. I look at Moretz's body of work and see a person with, at best, very marginal acting skills and a look which just screams bland, ordinary, everyday Hollywood flavor of the month.

      Because of this, I think we would be lucky to avoid casting her in any Star Wars role.

      I don't mean that as an attack on you or your preferences, I just think it's funny how people can take such different things out of the same situation.

      Delete
    2. I am just looking at the casting as a realistic choice. Not a "fan boy - wish list" one. I am sure there might be a better choice out there, but...

      You still need to find someone to commit to such a project. She would probably commit without a doubt and with JJ behind her, he would probably bring something out in her we haven't seen yet. She was pretty good in the Kick Ass movies.

      I also don't believe she is bland. She has not been given a role to suck herself into yet. Ben Affleck = Batman? No. Chloe = Jedi Kid? Sure. I'll ok that move.

  19. I agree with you.

  23. A conversation between two Star Wars fans, ten years from now:

    - Star Wars is not what it used to be! The action is too hectic.. Too much digital effects,, All those annoying musical numbers with dancing lightsabers.. Blue lens-flares.. Benedict Cumberbatch everywhere.....

    - Yeah! And that's just the latest edition of the Original Trilogy...

    :)))

    ReplyDelete
  24. If she said "Yeah, I mean I can’t really speak about it.", there must surely be some conversations going on with her. I don't know how to feel about it. I like her, but I think she's far too young for a. They would need someone at least 19/20 who you could class as a young adult, rather than a kid/teenager. I'd prefer Rooney Mara or perhaps Jennifer Lawrence, I think that's a much more suitable age range. Plus I preferable want the three leading roles to be unknowns.

      Oh wait.

  25. If she talk for star wars and Abrams is one thing but if Abrams talk for het than she is lock for main role. So still she is not lock. But yea she want to be in star wars. It's normal she want to be next Jennifer lawrence. Both start acting so young. Lawrence now made 20million$+ per movie. So of course she want star wars role. One role in star wars will make her 20 million $ actress on age of 20 like lawrence!

  26. why do you all think she would be the lead role? she would just be one of the kids being cast...

  32. I was very leary of this site at first, but I treat it as a funnel that grabs anything potentially worthy in that of how episode 7 will come into being before the big release date. The information that comes to fruition on this site seems to be maticously scowered from the internet by a real fan. One should thank the maker because, that person is doing a service for you that Disney and Lucasfilm are not...for obvious reasons.
    I find if I need quick to the point info on what happening it is here. I like to keep an open mind on anything I read, and the creator of this site has never said anything was set in stone, and has used the proper adjectives and adverbs...I do not and some sites maliciously hype jive information for a buck. This is a fun site regardless of not all of the info being to my liking, and I sure won't hate Bill Murray for not being in Ghostbusters.....I mean he will be, or won't be, or mabey, or...oh forget it!

  38. I'd love to see Chloe Moretz in a new Star Wars film!

    She should play an alien that looks exactly human (like herself) except for having a few cute leopard spots on her breasts. And this alien race walk around completely naked all the time. Also, in their culture they have an obligatory greeting ceremony when meeting humans, which is either giving a blowjob or having sex.

    Yes, I can definitely see Chloe in this role. As she is a serious actress, of course she would like to bring everything she can to the role. Hence, she would insist on doing the sex scenes for real, that is unsimulated.

    Yes, I say, give her that part!

    ReplyDelete
  39. emmm...I LOVE CHLOE. and i would love to see her in star wars (even if not in star wars,I would love to see her in any big movies that will rise her name up)

    but have u guys heard of Saoirse Ronan?? I heard rumours about her auditioning,but the decision's pending cause they said there's "another candidate" they're also suggesting for the role. that's where we assume chloe parts in so far...if the 'other candidate' is even her.

    What made me sure that Saoirse Ronan is one of the definate cast in star wars 7 because I heard FOR SURE that she just turned down a role in Avengers 2. What any other reason would someone be refusing an offer such as Avengers 2 unless they're convinced that they will make something bigger...like, Star Wars 7??? Both movies are out in 2015,btw.

    But that's just speculation too. Just wait and see in the future who will they finally cast...
