I've read comments from people in various places assuming that this was going to be a cheesy re-make. That's a rather absurd presumption. Chloe has reached a plateau where she's not likely to accept a job that isn't much sought after and desirable. Unless, of course , she chooses to. If those people named, including Miss Fanning and Ms. Foster or Ms. Moore are in it as well, it's more likely to be very,very good. Not a cheese-fest. Miss Moretz has had a very busy career. She's done quite well. I wish her luck with her life. I hope her dogs are doing well.
