Chloe Moretz & Kodi Smit-McPhee Reunite for 'Wilderness of James'?

Chloe Moretz / Kodi Smit-McPhee

The duo lit up the screen in the US adaptation of Let Me In, and now Deadline reports Chloe Moretz and Kodi Smit-McPhee look to be reunited in a new indie coming of age tale called The Wilderness of James. The story sounds like a familiar indie tale following a young Portland boy dealing with the absence of his father. Likely he forms some kind of friendship or romance with Moretz. Michael Johnson wrote the film and will make his directorial debut for the project produced by Super Crispy, the company behind the Sundance selected films Nobody Walks with Olivia Thirlby and Smashed with Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

As a sucker for coming of age tales, I'm already very excited about this film. Plus, the dynamic between Moretz and Smit McPhee in Let Me In was what made the story so compelling. Frankly, I'm more interested in seeing their pairing in this film without the genre elements that the Matt Reeves film contained. Smit-McPhee is very much on the rise (especially following a great voice performance in ParaNorman), and Moretz just keeps impressing audiences with a variety of roles, not to mention her first sequel in the form of Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall. Hopefully we'll see The Wilderness of James at a festival down the road.

    i couldn't agree more on "let me in", ethan - the moretz/smit relationship WAS compelling to watch.....it's what kept me in the movie. what's sad (for me) is how long it's taking kick-ass2 to get out. i'm thinking moretz is getting too old for hit-girl to have the same kind of impact she did in #1.

    Hahahahaha Bobo_Vision I agree! Lol he is an adorable actor though. I predict teen heartthrob in 10 years.

    Dear Michael Johnson, if you are looking, My name is Jack Grey, and I a sixteen years old. I am a hard working and passionate actor. I have done acting over the years in stage schools , and in school plays. I was looking for auditions on the internet but they was nothing right for me, until I saw your film, and I through I would be good to play a character in your film. I hope you take in all I have said and consider me a part in your film.
