Moretz: I want to write and produce

Chloe Grace Moretz wants to move into producing and writing

Chloe Grace Moretz has revealed that she would like to produce and write, so she can wield more power in the film industry.

The 16-year-old, who has reprised her role as Mindy Macready aka Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass 2, said she would like to be more involved behind the scenes in the future.

"It's looking that way in a way. I definitely think so. Whether you're an actor or actress, you only have so much power. You do your role, you speak your lines and you do the best you can but after that, you walk away from the project," she said.

"You want to be a producer on your project because then, you have the power over what happens. And you want to be a part of the writing team on the movie because again, you have another stage of power. When you're a producer, you have that power to be listened to and taken seriously."

The Let Me In star added: "A lot of movies that you do, you think the script and actors are great, but it can be ruined in the editing room. It can be sound mixed horrifically. And that's the thing. An actor can do their part but you're only a little part in the scheme of things."

Chloe also said that the choice of roles for a young actress is limited.

"It's hard in our age range now because there are around five scripts a year and we all have to fight for them. But people are starting to understand that we are better at certain things and are writing scripts for certain actors now. So it's nice to see that happening," she said.

:: Kick-Ass 2 is in cinemas now.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Cancer:

Your career has been undergoing some dramatic changes. At long last, you'll have a chance to slow down and catch your breath. Getting used to a new set of responsibilities will take time and patience. Try not to be hard on yourself when you struggle with unfamiliar concepts. Nobody expects perfection, especially at this stage of the game. The more gentle you are with yourself, the easier it will be to master this role. If you're out of work, take this opportunity to rest and reflect on future possibilities.More
