NC-Filmed Chloe Grace Moretz Drama 'Hick' Hits DVD
Filmed in North Carolina and Nevada in 2011, Hick starring Chloe Grace Moretz, Blake Lively, and Juliette Lewis hits DVD this month following a brief theatrical run earlier this year.
Adapted from the critically acclaimed novel by Andrea Portes and directed by Derick Martini, Hick (rated R) stars Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick Ass, Let Me In, Dark Shadows, Carrie), Juliette Lewis (Cape Fear, Natural Born Killers), Blake Lively (Green Lantern), Eddie Redmayne (My Week With Marilyn), and Alec Baldwin (NBC’s 30 Rock) in a provocative story of drugs, seduction, and murder.
In the film, a small town teenager (Moretz) escapes to Las Vegas, leaving behind her alcoholic and abusive parents.
Armed with her smarts, a pistol, and pocket money, she hitchhikes her way west. Along the way, she crosses paths with an unstable rebel with questionable motives and a cocaine-snorting drifter on the run.
The road movie shot scenes at various locations throughout North Carolina, including Wilmington, Ivanhoe, Whiteville,
Leland and Burgaw.
After premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2011 and a limited theatrical run in May 2012, Hick was released on DVD on August 14.
