Chloe Moretz and Isabelle Huppert are now attached to a project from the director of Interview with a Vampire. While that director has had a mixed record, this is fantastic for both actresses. Moretz famously canceled all her projects so she can redirect her career to a better spot and be proud of her career. Huppert’s profile in America will certainly rise because she’s working with a young mainstream talent.
What are your thoughts? Isabelle Huppert in a villainous role opposite of Chloe Moretz seems fantastic. I think this could finally get Moretz the recognition she deserved after Clouds of Sils Maria. I also want Huppert to win an Oscar, so I am very excited about this.
Excited! Neil Jordan is a talented guy.
Jordan’s an odd one. Clearly talented and thoughtful filmmaker, but almost none of his movies have any replay value. The guy gets mostly good reviews as well, but when was the last time anyone said “I need to watch Michael Collins, The Butcher Boy or Ondine again”.
It’s probably not his best film, but Interview With The Vampire is the Jordan film with the most rewatchability factor. It’s entertaining, and fun to watch Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt camping it up. Once you know the twist to The Crying Game, replay value goes down a lot.

Bullshit. The twist isn’t the point of the movie. Game survives the exploitation gimmick of its American marketing campaign because the movie works. The characters are compelling and the storytelling and score continue enchant me today. The Crying Game is top ten of its decade. And Jordan’s signature movie above Mona Lisa and Interview with the Vampire.
It sounds like a familiar plot, but I just can’t put my finger on it. Also, of all people they cast, they choose over-actor Moretz?
