Chloe Moretz Was Matthew Vaughn's Choice For Star Wars Episode VII Lead

Body

5241 We just learned that Star Trek Into Darkness director J.J. Abrams has been picked to helm Star Wars Episode VII, but a previous rumor strongly suggested that Matthew Vaughn was to take the gig.

We now learn that apparently was the case as SlashFilm is reporting that Kathleen Kennedy was in talks with Mathew Vaughn, who apparently pitched his Star Wars movie with Chloe Moretz as the lead.

What's interesting about Vaughn's pitch is that it seems to corroborate rumors and speculation that the Star Wars Episode VII screenwriter, Michael Arndt, has written a female lead for the movie.

SlashFilm also states that Steven Spielberg was the primary reason getting J.J. Abrams onboard the new Star Wars as he convinced both Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy.

Matthew Vaughn is working on the Mark Millar's Secret Service next.

Chloe Moretz has Kick-Ass 2 coming out and the Carrie remake.
