Chloe ‘Hit Girl’ Moretz Is A “Hick”

“Kick-Ass” star Chloe Moretz has signed onto the upcoming coming-of-age indie drama “Hick” reports Variety.

Based on Andrea Portes’ novel which the author herself adapted for the big screen, the story follows a 13-year-old Nebraska girl who flees her alcoholic and abusive parents and heads out on the road.

The world outside her door proves just as cold and uncaring, including the adult figures that come into her life like a cocaine-snorting grifter, and a crooked guy who eventually rapes her.

Derick Martini directs and shooting kicks off in New Mexico later this year.
