Chloe Grace Moretz and Sasha Lane will
play gay in the upcoming film The Miseducation of Cameron Post.
According to The
Hollywood Reporter, the 19-year-old Moretz will star in the
film based on the 2012 novel of the same name by Emily Danforth.
Set in 1993, The Miseducation of
Cameron Post follows Cameron, a 12-year-old girl who is sent to
live with her conservative aunt in Montana after her parents die in a
car crash. The aunt sends Cameron to a gay conversion camp after she
is caught in an intimate moment with another female teen.
Sasha Lane, 21, plays a friend Cameron
meets at the conversion center. Lane made her film debut earlier
this year in American Honey.
Danforth has said that her novel was
inspired by Zach Stark's story. After coming out to his parents at
age 16, Zach was sent to a de-gaying camp run by Love In Action.
Rounding out the cast are John
Gallagher, Jr., Forrest Goodluck and Jennifer Ehle.
