Our favorite publishing mini-mogul is at it again. She’s signed with Hollywood agency UTA, and is set to star in her first film—playing the role of a precocious young girl named Chloe. The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop:

Gevinson and the agency have just closed a deal for her to make her acting debut in writer/director Nicole Holofcener’s untitled new film at Fox Searchlight. She will play the role of Chloe, an only child who never received much attention from her parents, forcing her to grow up faster than her peers. While Gevinson has quite attentive parents — as noted in the New York Times feature — she can definitely relate to growing up faster than her peers.
