You could do a hell of a lot worse than casting Moretz.
We knew that work was continuing to get The Secret Service set up as Vaughn’s next film, and it looked to us at Bleeding Cool that he wasn’t moving forward on Star Wars.
But we didn’t know how far his conversations with Kennedy had gone.
Well, apparently they went far enough that they talked about casting, and Vaughn pitched Chloe Moretz as the lead of the film.
This doesn’t confirm that Michael Arndt‘s screenplay will have a female lead, as much as it might suggest it. Vaughn is pretty hands on with screenplays and it’s just as likely, if not more so, that he had his own ideas for where a seventh episode of Star Wars should go. That might be where Moretz fit in – in a Vaughn-devised plot.
Or maybe Arndt really is writing up a female lead.
