and Carrie star Chloe Grace Moretz has not been invited to read for Star Wars Episode VII, in spite of rumors early in the process that she was a frontrunner for a major role, the actor told Latino Review in an interview.
This comes on the heels of Saoirse Ronan trying to downplay her own involvement in the film by saying that just about everyone in Hollywood has read for a Star Wars part, so it seems--if both statements are true--to cast serious doubt on the degree to which Moretz is a "frontrunner" for anything much.
"No, no. Rumors--I don’t know how they get started," Moretz said while promoting Carrie, "but it would be great to be a part of it. I don’t think Disney doesn’t know what’s really going to happen. I don’t even think they cast the principal roles yet."
