Tim Burton is busy luring more children to the set of Dark Shadows. More specifically, he’s busy luring them from the set of The Invention On Hugo Cabret. First, Gulliver McGrath signed on to be creeped out by the exceptionally pale clique of Burton, Johnny Depp, and Helena Bonham Carter. Now Kick Ass‘s Hit Girl, Chloe Moretz has signed as well.
Moretz will play Carolyn. She’s the daughter of Michelle Pfeiffer‘s Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, who is the reclusive matriarch of the Collins clan and owner of the Collinwood mansion where the story is set. Moretz should fit in nicely on set considering her resume is already heavy with genre films. She’s used to be bloodied up between Kick Ass, Let Me In, and the tween gladiator battles she likely had to win to earn so much success at such a young age. (Deadline)
