Isabelle Furhman Wilderness Of JamesLast month, when I reported that Chloe Moretz was in talks to star in The Wilderness Of James, an indie film coming-of-age tale that was scripted by first-time director Michael Johnson, I mentioned the deal was contingent on the schedule of the young actress after she signed on for Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall. Well, Moretz has had to drop out of the project, and it has turned into a great opportunity for Isabelle Fuhrman, who has just signed to take her place.

Fuhrman, who’s repped by CAA and Management 360, gets the gig after completing the M. Night Shyamalan-directed After Earth, opposite Will Smith and Jaden Smith. Set in Portland, Wilderness Of James is about a young boy dealing with absence of his father. Johnson wrote the script. Fuhrman plays the role of Val opposite Kodi Smitt-McPhee. Super Crispy is producing the low-budget indie and shooting is scheduled to begin next month. Nicholas Frenkel and Glenn Howarton are exec producing.
