Chloë Grace Moretz is set to play “a beautiful Hollywood ingénue” in a new movie according to Entertainment Weekly. Chloë will take a turn as a woman named Fawn in “Party of the Century,” an upcoming movie about one legendary bash thrown by the author Truman Capote in the ’60s.
The movie is based on the true story of Truman’s Black and White Ball, a 1966 event at the New York Plaza Hotel that featured a who’s who of the cultural elite. With guests dressed all in black and white and wearing masks, the party provides rich visual source material for a film coupled with plenty of drama from Truman’s real-life antics.
Chloë joins Josh Gad on the project as the “Beauty and the Beast” actor will play Truman. Hopefully, he’s prepared for all of the hot takes about how he’s no Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
“Our film is a delicate balance of worlds converging at a pivotal moment in time,” directors Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman said in a statement. “Chloë and Josh are brilliant performers who can embody these worlds while bringing the electricity and pathos required to make the story fly.”
What do you think of Chloë’s latest role? Is this the kind of serious role we should expect from her now?
