The only time I’ve ever heard of Sils-Maria was while reading about a house in Switzerland that the sunshiney German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche used to live in, but apparently the entire area is quite nice and a vacation home there would be pretty amazing. Does the name have anything to do with the upcoming film of the same name? Possibly. But this is a story about casting, not setting.
The upcoming drama Sils Maria, which will be helmed by French director Olivier Assayas, is now in the process of adding busy actress Chloe Moretz, according to Deadline. Should she sign on, she’d join a cast that already features Juliette Binoche (Cosmopolis) and Mia Wasikowska (Stoker).
In the film, Moretz would play JoAnn, an actress who takes on a role previously made famous by Binoche’s character as a youth, and soon becomes the elder actress’ obsession. It sounds like a fleshed-out B plot from Black Swan, with a lot less potential for wing growth.
Moretz is having a killer career as of late – no pun intended – as she’ll soon be appearing in Jeff Wadlow’s highly-anticipated sequel Kick-Ass 2 as well as Kimberly Peirce’s questionable-but-promising remake of Stephen King’s Carrie, where she’ll play the tortured titular teen. Beyond that, she’s also joining Charlize Theron in the Dark Places novel adaptation; is signed on for Tim Robbins’ art scene dramedy Man Under; and is attached to Lynn Shelton’s dark comedy Laggies.
