Have a look at Chloe Moretz on the set of Kimberly Pierce's Carrie remake

06.28.2012

It's been quite a while since I've seen the original CARRIE, but I always remember it being pretty freaky in terms of the performances and visuals.  Director Brian DePalma was right at home with the Stephen King adaptation, which made stars out of Sissy Spacek and John Travolta.  Now, a remake of the film is on the way, courtesy of director Kimberly Pierce (BOYS DON'T CRY) and starring Hit-Girl herself, Chloe Grace Moretz. 

Have a look at the new Carrie:

Although this is just a set pic, it's enough to give you an overall feel for how Moretz will look in comparison to the original Carrie White, played by Spacek.  A closer look will see that she is wearing a crucifix, which goes well with her Sunday best dress.  It's unlikely she'll rock those glasses in the film, as they're a little too chic for a repressed telekinetic psycho. 

The rest of the cast includes Julianne Moore as Carrie's crazy mom, Judy Greer as Miss Desjardin, Alex Russell as Billy Nolan (Travolta's part), and Gabriella Wilde as Sue Snell (originally played by Amy Irving). 

It's been more than 30 years since the original, so I can't really cry foul on a remake of this, especially since it's based on a novel.  DePalma's version was a solid flick, but I'm interested to see what a new version will bring, especially with Moretz in the lead, who is growing into a fine actress with an already impressive body of work. 

Here's the synopsis for CARRIE:

The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Moore) and her daughter Carrie (Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson (Portia Doubleday), but only Chris' best friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc.

CARRIE is set to go psycho-psychic on March 15, 2013

Extra Tidbit: Carrie was the first novel by Stephen King to be published. He wrote it while living in a trailer with his wife's typewriter and originally tossed the first few pages in the trash, until his wife fished them out and encouraged him to finish. Talk about a hell of a save...

Carrie has an iPhone now. Okay, I can accept that. So she's not much of a loner then.

This isn't the first time they've remade "Carrie." They did it in 2002 with Angela Bettis.

Carrie doesn't need a reboot, that said Moretz would be a fine choice if they must rehash this story. Shes growing up quick and I'm surprised people still think she's going to be tiny like the comics in Kick-Ass 2. Shit, she looks like she may be taller than Aaron Johnson by the time they shoot it.

It's going to be fun to watch Chloe Moretz develop her career. A good horror flick will only enhance her ability to win good roles as she becomes an adult.
I love the Canadian flag on the trunk of the police car, and the BC licence plate!

Surprisingly...Looks Good!!

I was against the idea of remaking Carrie because of how Hollywood likes to "pretty up" every character in order for sex appeal, but Chloe actually does look fitting in the role (judging from this one set picture, of course) and she is a great actress, so I'm going to keep my eye out for this.
