With her latest film Carrie arriving in theaters shortly, Chloe Grace Moretz is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. The Wrap reports that the actress has signed on to star in the adaptation of the Sam Munson novel November Criminals, which Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil) has rewritten and will direct. The story takes place in Washington D.C. and revolves around a rebellious teenager who takes it upon himself to lead the investigation into the murder of a classmate. Moretz will play the female lead role of Phoebe, and Gervasi is currently in the process of casting the male lead.
Steven Knight (Eastern Promises) wrote the script, and November Criminals will mark Gervasi’s second narrative feature film as a director after last year’s Hitchcock. Moretz recently wrapped a role in Lynn Shelton’s Laggies and another opposite Denzel Washington in The Equalizer. The actress is currently filming Dark Places with Charlize Theron.
