First Looks: Chloe Moretz in ‘Hick;’ Colin Farrell, Jennifer Aniston & Kevin Spacey in ‘Horrible Bosses’
Posted on Tuesday, April 5th, 2011 by Russ Fischer
Just a couple years ago Chloe Moretz looked like a munchkin in (500) Days of Summer, and now in this off-set still from Hick, she’s looking a bit older than fourteen as she’s tarted up for her role as “a 13-year-old Nebraska girl who gets more than she bargained for when she runs away to Las Vegas.”
The full photo is after the break, along with a collection of images from Horrible Bosses, in which Seth Gordon (The King of Kong) directs Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell and Jennifer Aniston as three people you really don’t want to work for.
Hick‘s cast is interesting (Eddie Redmayne, Juliette Lewis, and Blake Lively also appear) and Lymelife director Derick Martini is behind the camera, working from a script by Andrea Portes, who adapted her own novel. But the attraction will definitely be Chloe Moretz, who has consistently been one of the better young actors on the scene. This will be her most overtly adult-like role (though Kick-Ass and Let Me In certainly weren’t kids’ stuff) and I’m hoping she does as much with it as she has previous work.
Meanwhile, there’s Horrible Bosses, part of the summer crop of foul-mouthed R-rated comedies.
Written by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley, the film is about three friends (Jason Sudeikis, Jason Bateman, and Charlie Day) who make a plan to deal with each others’ horrible bosses. Jennifer Aniston is Charlie Day’s boss, a nymphomaniac dentist; Kevin Spacey looks to be getting back into Swimming With Sharks mode as Jason Bateman’s boss; and Colin Farrell is the cokehead son of Donald Sutherland, who is the mentor of Jason Sudeikis. Oh, and Jamie Foxx plays Motherfucker Jones, who helps the anti-boss plan come together. With all those people together and messing with one another, I’m looking forward to the fireworks. Loving Colin Farrell’s look, there, too.
