Chloe Moretz gets stuck in a Rut?

July 30th, 2010

Chloe Moretz is in talks to star in 'The Rut'.

The 'Kick-Ass' actress - who played controversial pre-teen superhero Hit Girl in the action comedy - is in negotiations to take a starring role in the Karyn Kusama-directed drama.

Chloe would play the daughter of a hunter who must learn the tricks of hunting when her father goes missing, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The movie would be quite a departure for Kusama, whose biggest movie so far 'Jennifer's Body' focused on the teen slasher market with Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried taking leading roles.

It is the second indie-drama the 13-year-old British actress is set to work on - she has also signed up to play a lead role in 'Hick'.

She is currently filming the role of Isabelle in Martin Scorsese's new family 3-D adventure 'Hugo Cabret' alongside Jude Law, Sacha Baron Cohen and Emily Mortimer, before beginning work on 'The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea' with Jessica Biel.
