Chloe Moretz, Jackie Earle Haley and Bailee Madison are all attached to star in the indie black comedy “Dance of the Mirlitons” says The Hollywood Reporter.
Evan Greenberg penned the script and is directing the story of an ambitious, slightly overweight ballerina (Madison) with an overbearing mother (Kristen Bell) who will stop at nothing to become a star.
The girl enters a “Mean Girls”-type environment when she has to prove her worth in class. Moretz will play the class’ star ballerina and nemesis of Madison’s character. Haley plays a sadistic Russian ballet teacher.
Joe Kline, Daniel Dubiecki and Joel Michaely will produce. Shooting will kick off next year.
