MGM Formally Offers Lead Remake Of Stephen King’s ‘Carrie’ To Chloe Moretz (http://www.deadline.com/2012/03/mgm-formally-offers-lead-remake-of-stephen-kings-carrie-to-chloe-moretz/)

BREAKING: After meeting and reading a group of young actresses for Carrie, MGM, Screen Gems and director Kim Peirce have made their decision and made the formal offer today to Chloe Moretz. If negotiations work out, she’ll play the title role in the remake of the Brian DePalma original that was based on the 1974 Stephen King bestseller. She’s expected to play the shy high school student Carrie White, who 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. Sissy Spacek played the character in the first movie, with Piper Laurie playing her mother, and Amy Irving, Nancy Allen, John Travolta, Betty Buckley and William Katt rounding out the cast. Both Spacek and Laurie got Oscar nominations for their work in the 1976 film.

The studio and Peirce have been meeting with actresses for the past two weeks. Word all along was that while names like Dakota Fanning were circulating, Peirce and the studio had an eye on Moretz. The studio denied it at the time, but what actually happened is, Moretz didn’t meet with Peirce until last weekend. She got the job immediately. Moretz, who first came on with performances in Kick-Ass, (500) Days Of Summer and Let Me In, is at the top of the crop of young actresses. Coming off Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, her next major film is the Tim Burton-directed Dark Shadows with Johnny Depp. She’s repped by WME and 3 Arts. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa wrote the script.

Insiders said that once they make Moretz’s deal, they will focus on landing the psycho mom and supporting cast and they will shoot this year.

Oh man, no closing parenthesis in the thread title is going to bug me whenever I look at it. I need closure!!

I like how Spacek was a plain-looking, wallflower. I think Moretz brings something different to the role and I hope it fits. The things I've seen her in, she always has attitude and an angry look. Price seems like an interesting person to be doing this, I guess.

Expect a lot less gratuitous nudity this time around (and a probable PG-13 rating).

Hopefully they can get Travolta and Spacek to cameo as teachers.

If only for the fact the story is basically pushed into motion by Carrie receiving her first period. In the showers. With everyone watching and tormenting her by throwing tampons.

For the most part, the original film is pretty faithful to the novel other than using the novel's framing device (using recollections of those who were there for the events) and how the third act is executed.

The original novel ends with Carrie destroying the entire town after the prom. She goes home to get consolation from her mother who flips out and stabs her in the shoulder. Carrie reacts and kills her mother by stopping her heart. She runs out of the house, kills Billy and Chris and then runs into Sue. She's able to read Sue's mind and lets her go knowing that Sue had no involvement regarding the prank and genuinely wanted to help out Carrie. Carrie dies from massive blood loss due to her mother stabbing and Sue hightails it out of there.

While I don't think the framing of the narrative would work, I'd prefer to see a "bigger" third act similar to the novel.

Yeah, although it should be mentioned that King himself said that he wishes he had thought of themother's death by impalement with kitchen utensils that was used in the original movie.

Looking forward to this. Based on the director and star, it looks like they're going for a more serious, high-minded movie rather than the money-grab sequel "The Rage".

They should definitely go for an R rating though. It's important to see Carrie's complete meltdown and how she enacts vengeance on the whole town.

Sissy Spacek as the mom is a brilliant idea! I've heard rumours about Jodie Foster or Julianne Moore (hey there, Clarice Starlings!).

I remember reading that Carrie Fisher was up for the part in the original movie, but did Star Wars instead because she didn't want to nudity in the shower scene.

And we almost had Sissy Spacek playing Princess Leia.

You really got a sense as to why she would be taunted in school. That was key in buying who Carrie White really was in a very short time. Also Spacek was still relatively unknown to mass audiences when the movie came out. It will be interesting to see how they do it with Moretz since she's gonna be fairly well-known when this movie comes out (she has 3 movies coming out this year).

The beginning of cinema. Remakes are hardly new.

I haven't seen the original movie in years, but it's certainly iconic. I'm not sure a remake could recapture any of that, but I'd be willing to check it out in the theater.

She's a good actress.

However, I am surprised to hear people say she's 'attractive'. I consider her to be very strange/goofy looking (http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/screenshot.php?movieid=35629&position=1).

Which makes her perfect for this role.

"I'm trying to think of the last time I saw a director making fan posters for their own film before they ever rolled a frame of film, and I'm coming up empty. I mean, Chloe Moretz just started negotiations on the film last week, and yet here we've got a poster that Pierce made that suggests the tone she's hoping to strike with her film."

Julianne Moore in Talks to Take Mother Role in CARRIE Remake (http://collider.com/julianne-moore-carrie-remake/159623/)

Julie Walker
04-18-12, 12:42 AM
I wonder if they can even make a good movie out of this? I think the 1976 version is great, despite being very different from the novel. The novel itself wasn't 'that' good in my opinion and merely okay from what I remember.

The 2002 tv remake tried to follow the structure of the novel and it was awfully boring and stupid in my opinion. The changes made in the 1976 version to the very ending were excellent, while the 2002 version which stayed more faithful to the novel was just dull and laughable.

A similar thing happened with The Shining where all the changes made in the Kubrick version were actually great and became iconic(axe and hedge maze). Meanwhile the tv remake that is more faithful to the novel was lame and laughable with the animal hedge coming to life and the crochet mallet. Those didn't work well on screen and I can see why they changed them for the Kubrick version.

So now I'm more aware than ever, books and film are different mediums and some changes must be made. Since what works on the page may not work on the screen. The two examples above are the perfect example of this, since both original film adaptions were drastically different from the novels and did their own thing with the material, but they worked. Meanwhile the current attempt to be 'faithful' to both novels failed miserably.

So can another attempt at being 'faithful' to the Carrie novel work? I'll probably check it out, but am skeptical at the moment based on how most King adaptions and 'faithful' adaptions go. Also if it's PG-13 and played safe, it'll not work at all and if it's R rated but played 'safe, it won't work either. The story needs an R rating and no sugar coating things. And so far,the 1976 version is the best take on the material.

Exclusive: Chloe Moretz Offers a Carrie Update

Already a familiar talent to horror fans for her vampiric turn in Matt Reeves' Let Me In, Chloe Moretz teams with director Tim Burton for the upcoming Dark Shadows and ComingSoon.net had a chance to speak with the young star. We'll have the full interview available soon, but we also got a few details about Moretz's upcoming role as the titular Carrie in Kimberly Peirce's big screen remake.

"I start that June 1st," says Moretz. "...It's going to be very well done. I don't want to jinx it, but [Peirce] is a genius, genius, genius director. I would never do it with someone that I don't trust. I trust her more than a lot of the directors I've worked with. She's the right woman for the job."

Released in 1974, "Carrie" was Stephen King's first published novel and tells the story of a high school girl who, through telekinetic powers, takes revenge on peers that have mocked her. Though Brian De Palma directed a highly-acclaimed film version in 1976, Moretz says that Peirce's take sticks more closely to King's text.

"I'm actually not looking at the original," she says, "even though De Palma's movie was one of the best movies ever made. It's completely iconic and I'm proud to be able to be doing a retooling of it. We're kind of going off the book. It's darker and much more psychological. More 'Black Swan.' You're really looking into her mind and it really looks into the relationship of Margaret and Carrie. It's set in modern time, so it's a lot different."

The role of Margaret White (Carrie's mother) was played by Piper Laurie in De Palma's version, earning the actress an Academy Award nomination. Last week, word broke that Julianne Moore had been offered the part for the new film.

Most intriguing of Moretz's comments about the upcoming project was the hint that her Carrie White would offer a very different look for her, physically.

"It's something that's very different from me," Moretz says of Carrie's wardrobe. "It's an out of body thing. I'm becoming a totally different person for it. I'm letting go of all of my self-esteem issues and just kind of going into it. You have to."

Although shooting won't begin for another month, Moretz and Peirce have already been impressed with the outpouring of fan support and, in particular, the fan-made poster pictured above. Designed by Pierre-Luc Boucher, the teaser was posted to his Deviant Art page and soon found its way to Peirce.

"That was a cool poster!" Moretz laughs. "Kim sent that to me. She said, 'Oh my god, you've got to look at this. It's really, really, really cool!' We both felt so pumped. Now we're chomping at the bit to get in there."

Carrie is scheduled for release on March 15, 2013. Check back for updates as they become available and catch Dark Shadows in theaters on May 11th.

You have to go for that PG-13 and... uh... Chloe Moretz is underage, so, there's that too.

This just doesn't make any sense. Chloe Moretz is great looking. In the book and the real movie, she was gangly, thin, and plain looking. Her sister in the sequel also wasn't the traditional model type. This is also why I hated the horrible remake of Let The Right One In. The character Eli was strange and "different" looking. I don't understand why they'd cast someone attractive.

Yeah, it is sort of odd when she's cuter than the 'popular girl' making fun of her. Of course, since this is Hollywood I suppose the idea that she actually looks like a real 15-year-old girl while all her co-stars are in their 20s is enough to make her a dork, I don't know.

I get that they are doing some stuff with wardrobe, but based on the set pics I think they're still missing the mark. Sure, they have her in 'church girl clothes', but it's like some fashion designer's version of a church look... it's still flattering on her. In reality when you see those traditionalist families, the girls are wearing those long, ill-fitting denim smock dresses.

It's Hollywood, so I'm sure they think by not putting much makeup on her that it will be enough to make her plain looking.

Reminds me of Not Another Teen Movie: "No, no, no, no, anyone but her! Not... Janey Briggs! Guys, she's got glasses and a ponytail! Aw, look at that, she's got paint on her overalls, what is that?"

This one is for the teens. Because there is no way in hell they are going to make a better performance than Sissy Spacek.

You look at Sissy in the original Carrie and you say "This chick is pretty ugly I can see why these assholes are picking on her".

You look at Moretz and you say "awww what a cutie" she's no ugly duckling even without lipstick or her hair fixed.

I'm not so sure Moretz can't pull off being a homely kid that no one likes (certainly not as well as Spacek though), but if this is really going to be PG-13 it's going to need to be VERY good for me even want to see it. And I tend to want to see anything and everything Julianne Moore does.

I've yet to read story but...does it need an R? As the story is in print...does it come off as R? I've seen the De Palma film and while I remember really liking it. Details as to what pushes the rating in it aside from the nudity I can't remember too well what else drives it to be an R aside from the awesome intro.

I'm still not at all convinced this is a good casting choice. To me, it seems like your everyday "Julianne Moore is sad" look. She just happens to be wearing a creepy costume and holding a knife.

I'm hoping they don't go the sympathetic, "understand her pain!" psycho route with the mother, but I'm worried that they will.

And then 80% in, I realized that it was a Carrie trailer, and I was bummed out.

So many awesome Stephen King stories out there to adapt. And they have to readapt a movie that was already pretty good. Ugh.

And then, although I'm sure she'll deliver a fine performance, there's the problem that Moretz is too pretty bo a convincing social outcast.

I know where you're coming from and I usually hate spoily trailers as well, but c'mon, it's Carrie. Everyone knows that story already, right? I think if you're watching this trailer, you're not thinking "I wonder what this movie's about", but rather "How faithful will this movie be to the DePalma original?" and "Will any changes be made to modernize the story?". The trailer answers those questions pretty decisively.

I think Mia Wasikowska would have been a better choice for the Carrie role.

Yeah, cause she's so homely and plain.

I do like that they cast the daughter from The Americans. I think she's a hell of a young actress -- one of the few who seems like a genuine teen, a smart one at that.

To be fair, the original 1976 Carrie trailer spoils the entire prom sequence and pretty much the entire film.

I did think the oil that fell on her in the remakes trailer was hilarious though. I know it was altered just for the 'green band' trailer, but it still looked stupid and should've been left out.

I thought they showed the blood as is(red) falling on her in the original 1976 trailer. But I was wrong, they show a split second with the original color, then a red filter takes over the image as it splashes on her.

Yeah, I have to disagree. Just look at the car sequence in the trailer. Practical stunt versus CGI. Plus DePalma did that shutter effect to Carrie's eyes when she used her power. I doubt we'll get any of that type of artful direction. Plus, there is no way they can come close to Pino Dinaggio's haunting score (I wonder if the remake will utilize it some) and I know we won't get blasted with opening credit nudity either. :(

I wonder if they'll use split screen.

From Urban Dictionary:

1. wolf pussy
a pussy that is so hairy that you are scared to stick your dick in it for fear it'll bite it off.

Don't kid yourselves: No nudity, PG-13, aimed at Hunger Games/Twilight audiences. Enough with the remakes already. What film started this current trend?

and officially rated R for Bloody Violence, Disturbing Images, Language & Some Sexual Content. its funny how several on the first page thought it would be PG-13 just because of the lead not being "of age"

Awesome. Now here's hoping it's actually a good movie as well as bloody, unlike the generic Evil Dead remake.

There would be no need for this if they would have gotten Juno Temple involved instead of Chloe whatever her name is.

Juno Temple would be butt naked the entire movie.

How did they get Thora Birch's breasts in American Beauty again? I mean I know her parents worked in porn, but she was still pretty young.

Her parents gave permission and were present at the shoot. I read an article that her dad is apparently present at every shoot she does (even though she's in her 30's now?) and is a complete pain in the ass to deal with, which explains why she more or less dropped off the radar.

That does not sound like a healthy relationship. What a wierdo!

Her dad also once told a co-star just how he should pork Thora for the camera and even gave the guy a thumbs up while he was shooting the sex scene with Thora. This is the same dad who apparently threatened another actor because he gave his daughter a back rub (at the director's insistence) while they were rehearsing a scene for a play. I get an incestuous vibe from the da.

As long as it's not a sexual scene, I think the nudity is allowed.

So will they work this song into the movie somehow for some Sony cross promotion?

They probably put more effort into this "prank" than most remakes put into their screenplay.

that was particularly awesome and i don't usually go for these types of vids.

this video is going to get more views than the actual movie.

Agreed - the scream at the end was dumb. The first is epic, though.
