Soderbergh to direct Moretz in play

Chloe Moretz is set to make her stage debut in a production directed by Steven Soderbergh.

The 16-year-old actress, who played gun-toting teen Hit-Girl in the Kick-Ass films, will star in a production of The Library at the Public Theatre in New York later this year.

Oscar-winning filmmaker Soderbergh will be at the helm of the play.

The Public Theatre site said of the production: "After Caitlin Gabriel (Chloe) survives a deadly shooting at her high school, she struggles to tell her story to her parents, the authorities and anyone who will listen. But there are other narratives that gain purchase in the media and paint her in a different light."

Soderbergh announced last year that he was retiring from making movies.
