If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Relativity Pictures is set to begin filming on their half of the Snow White War - the yet-untitled version starring Lily Collins as the iconic princess - but writer Melisa Wallack has already crossed enemy lines for her next job, scripting Universal's film adaptation of goth culture icon 'Emily The Strange'.
For those of us who have never heard of the character outside of seeing her face plastered all over the nearest Hot Topic, Emily The Strange is a mass-merchandising dream-machine created by skateboarder Rob Reger. Originally appearing on stickers to promote Reger's clothing line, the character has spun out into an entire franchise of comics, clothing, toys, and video games. The film will likely cover the origin of the character: a strange girl who gains the ability to fuse technology and imagination and her relationship with her four cats - Sabbath, Nee-Chee, Miles and Mystery. 'Let Me In' star Chloe Moretz is attached to star as the goth punk title character.
While Wallack career previously only consists of writing/directing the Aaron Eckhart comedy 'Meet Bill', she has also set up a new film 'Science Fair' with End Game Entertainment, and has long been a staple of Hollywood's "Black List" (a yearly list of hot, yet still unproduced scripts).
