The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and Star Wars represent the unifying myths of our time. If one seeks to be understood a reference to one or another of these new classics of film and literature is the best way to relate to many regardless of nationality, race, culture, politics or age cohort. It is therefore no wonder that the net and many fan zines have been abuzz with rumors as to who may be accorded a place in the pantheon being planned for what will be episode 7 of the STAR WARS saga.
Our own favorite is the dynamic star of “Carrie”, CHLOE GRACE MORETZ who has evidenced such talent and work-ethic as to be worthy of comparison to Jodie Foster among other legends of Hollywood. The year 2014 will be the breakout year for the 17-year old who has a half dozen or more films in production or post-production including “The Equalizer” with Denzel Washington, “Clouds of Sil Marie” with Juliette Binoche, “Dark Places” with Charlize Theron, “Laggies” with Keira Knightly and as the star in her own right in “If I Stay” which we project to become the sleeper hit and Oscar contender of the year.
Disney would be wise to sign her a.s.a.p. The Force is strong with this one.
