Isabelle Fuhrman Will Go To 'The Wilderness Of James' Instead Of Chloë Moretz

It looks like the reteaming of "Let Me In" stars Chloë Moretz and Kodi Smit-McPhee will have to wait. Scheduling problems have reared their head and the actress, who is currently busy on "Kick-Ass 2," has had to drop out of "The Wilderness of James," but another rising actress will get a chance to make an impression.

Isabelle Fuhrman, perhaps best known for her turn in "Orphan" and appearance in "The Hunger Games," has replaced Moretz in the picture. Penned by Michael Johnson, who will also be making his feature film debut, 'James' is a coming-of-age tale set in Portland centering on a boy dealing with an absentee father. The low-budget flick will roll in front of cameras in October.

Fuhrman was slated to star in David Gordon Green's "Suspiria" remake, which for now has been pushed back or scrapped with the filmmaker moving on instead to "Joe" with Nicolas Cage. The actress will also be seen in next summer's Shyamalan/Smith/Smith joint "After Earth," but 'Wilderness' will be a nice opportunity to lead a pic all on her own. [Deadline]

    I love her sophisticated european beauty but she should make something to her teeth and chin, I mean surgery is no more a taboo, isn't?

    Isabelle Fuhrman is a great actress. She was so good in Orphan, I actually hated her during that movie.

    Chloe Moretz is massively overrated. She is popular because guys have schoolgirl fantasies of her and pay to see her on screen. She's an okay actress but nothing special.

    @Michael Actually, she does... if you have seen Isabelle's work you would know that she can very much hold her own, she can most definitely act just as well or even more so than chloe moretz. if you don't agree then I sure would love to know what acting skills meter you're using..

    She's ugly as sin and she looks like she's in her mid 30s. They should have postponed this a few months and get Moretz instead.

    Isabelle is amazing! She is a true talent! She morphs into her characters just like Meryl Streep and Kate Winslet. Can't wait to see her in this role!

    Agreed with SP. Isabelle is a very talented young actress. I hope she gets more good roles in the future. Much prefer her to the rather overrated Chloe Moretz.

    Isabelle Fuhrman was wonderfully scary in the "Orphan." She deserves a better career. She is more talented than Chloe Moretz.

    @SP: I couldn't disagree more. She doesn't hold a candle to Chloe.
