Exclusive 1:1 interview with director Kimberly Peirce for her remake of Carrie!
Kimberley Pierce is one of the few directors I considered a cinematic genius out of the gate with her freshman film BOYS DON'T CRY, a movie so damn powerful I find myself literally quivering in anxiety whenever I revisit it. I can't stress i enough, that picture is a masterpiece. So when I heard she'd be tackling a full fledged studio horror picture a year ago, I flipped like a giddy pup. The project seemed out of left field, yet the material is so fitting.
With CARRIE Kimberley is exploring themes similar to her award winning debut such as isolation, loneliness and identity... only this time in a genre that relishes a bloody macabre finale. We discussed her attraction to the story, her relationship with both the Stephen King novel as well as the Brian De Palma adaptation and the early days of development when MGM was tossing around the notion of turning the remake into a FOUND FOOTAGE picture.
