The Film That Lit My Fuse is a Deadline video series that aims to provide an antidote to headlines about industry uncertainty by swinging the conversation back to the creative ambitions, formative influences and inspirations of some of today’s great screen artists.
Every installment asks the same five questions. Today’s subject is Chloë Grace Moretz, whom we’ve watched grow up onscreen and who has graduated seamlessly from child stardom to adulthood. Moretz began her career on the big screen with the 2005 remake The Amityville Horror, but her real breakthrough was an audacious turn as Hit Girl, the pint-sized action hero in Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass. She then played the child vampire in Let Me In, the Americanized remake of the Swedish film Let the Right One In. She then starred for Martin Scorsese in Hugo, for Tim Burton in Dark Shadows, before reprising in a Kick-Ass sequel. After starring in Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria and the Neil Jordan-directed thriller Greta, Moretz is currently starring in the post apocalyptic sci/fi film Mother/Android, directed by Mattson Tomlin.
