Watch: Chloe Moretz and Blake Lively in Red Band Trailer for 'Hick'
After directing the quirky, funny festival favorite Lymelife, director Derick Martini is back with a completely different kind of film. The adaptation of Andrea Portes' novel Hick follows a 13-year-old Nebraska girl (Chloe Moretz), who gets more than she bargained for when she runs away to Las Vegas and finds herself under the tutelage of Glenda (Blake Lively), a hard-living grifter who takes the young girl under her wing. Now the first red band trailer gives us a taste of the gritty, edgy drama, but it's still fairly tame with the only real controversial material being the focus on a 13-year old girl being risque and violent. Watch below!
Here's the red band trailer for Derick Martini's adaptation of Hick from Yahoo! Movies:
Derick Martini (Lymelife) directs this adaptation of Hick adapted by Andrea Portes, author of the novel on which the film is based. The story follows Luli (Chloe Moretz), a 13-year-old Nebraskan girl, and her rough life of crime and seduction on the road after she runs away from her neglectful parents. Taken in by Glenda (Blake Lively), a hard-living grifter, the two take Las Vegas by storm, guns in hand. Eddie Redmayne, Rory Culkin, Juliette Lewis and Alec Baldwin also co-star in the adaptation which is slated to hit UltraVOD on May 8th and heads to select theaters starting on May 11th at the beginning of the summer.
