The director of the new Carrie remake, Kimberly Peirce, recently took to her Facebook page to give an insight into her new film. In the brief statement, she explains a little about her intentions for the new film, and also tells us a little about what lead actress Chloe Moretz is doing to prepare for her role:
“I am modernizing the story as one has to in order to bring any great piece of work written in one era into the next and especially given how very relevant this material is right now.
Chloe is going deep into character to get this right….sewing her own dresses, spending time in her closet….and so much more….Thanks for all the great wishes. We are on it! And privileged to be working with such great source material”
In further Carrie news, the interwebs have reported today that Columbia Pictures are now speaking very closely with Julianne Moore to play the role of Carrie’s bonkers Mother. Nothing has yet been confirmed as to whether Moore will take the role, but she has been in the running for the role of the Mother for quite some time now. I believe she would make an ideal choice.
Carrie arrives in cinemas 15 March 2013.
In the story shy high school student Carrie White is raised by a nightmarish religious fanatic mother and comes to grip with devastating telepathic powers just as she reaches puberty. She eventually uses those gifts for lethal means when fellow classmates use the prom as an excuse to humiliate her before the entire school in a parable about bullying.
