The Kick-Ass star later confirmed the news via Twitter with much excitement. "Never been so happy in my life! Thank you Kim Pierce and thank u MGM for the chance of a lifetime i will never forget!" Moretz tweeted earlier today.

The Hugo actress will play the title role, following Sissy Spacek's Oscar-nominated performance as the shy high school student who uses her telepathic powers for evil after being bullied by fellow classmates.

Moretz reportedly beat out fellow young starlets like Dakota Fanning for the coveted role.
