Karyn Kusama’s last film was a bit underwhelming and it had nothing to do with Megan Fox being its headliner. The movie was Jennifer’s Body and it came in with a silent whisper and left with a painful sigh when it debuted in theaters last year. Now the director is trying to right that wrong with The Rut (interesting title) and she wants Kick-Ass star Chloe Moretz to help her.
Moretz obviously has no problem kicking ass and taking names and Kusama wants her to return to those violent roots. The Rut focus on “a father-daughter relationship and centers particularly on hunting, as a daughter must learn the tricks of hunting and archery taught to her by her father after said father goes missing.” Doesn’t that sound interesting? It’s almost like when Nicolas Cage taught her how to bust a cap in someone’s ass but instead of guns she’s using arrows.
Kusama is sticking with her female centric resume of projects, which includes Aeon Flux and Girlfight with Michelle Rodriguez. What happened to that Kusama? We miss her. Hopefully, The Rut will get a positive push due to Moretz’ increasing fanboy cred.
What do you think of Kusama and Moretz teaming up for The Rut?
