Chloe Moretz is certainly the new tween "It" girl. Moertz, who so ably played Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass, will be sporting black hair and eyebrow grazing bangs as the titular character in Universal's adaptation of counterculture icon Emily the Strange.
Universal just acquired the rights to character, created by skateboarder Rob Reger among a multitude of designs he was printing up for stickers, T-shirts and skateboards in Santa Cruz in the early 1990s. Emily went on to become a multimillion-dollar brand in fashion, books and comics, toys, school supplies and accessories.
Put simply: Emily the Strange is cute and edgy as hell, like me.
