A couple of weeks ago, it appeared Let Me In stars Kodi Smit-McPhee and Chloe Moretz would be reteaming for The Wilderness Of James, but Moretz’s busy schedule has made that impossible. As a result she’s been replaced by The Hunger Games’ Clove, Isabelle Fuhrman, according to Deadline.
Written by first-time filmmaker Michael Johnson, The Wilderness Of James is a coming-of-age drama that sees Kodi Smit-McPhee playing a boy coming to grips with the absence of his father. Fuhrman will take on the female lead Val. As when Moretz was in contention for the role, there are no other details about her character.
The movie is set to shoot next month in Portland, Oregon.
