Kealan O’Rourke to Rewrite Emily the Strange

Although Chloe Moretz signed on to play the title role back in 2010, things have been relatively quiet on the Emily the Strange movie front. The project appears to be gaining some momentum today, however, as The Wrap reports that Kealan O’Rourke has been brought aboard to rewrite the screenplay. Melissa Wallack provided the previous draft.

First started as an iconic image in 1991 and used to promote a clothing line from Cosmic Debris, Emily the Strange has developed a back story through a series of Dark Horse comics, which have been published since 2001.

Dark Horse Entertainment’s Mike Richardson is set to produce with Keith Golberg and Rob Reger executive producing.
