Chloe Moretz Cast As New ‘Carrie’

Carrie remake casting
It seems about as likely as a pig being made Wing Commander-in-Chief of her Maj’s Royal Air Force that MGM’s planned Carrie remake won’t end up being a pitiful imitation of the Brian De Palma-directed, pig blood-soaked horror classic. However that remake is nonetheless on the way, and Hit-Girl herself, Chloe Moretz, has just been confirmed in the title role.

Having notched up star gigs in Kick-Ass, Scorsese’s Hugo and Let Me In (itself another divisive horror remake, of course), Moretz has established herself as one of the leading teen actresses in movies today – meaning she was always likely to be a frontrunner for the role of Stephen King’s troubled telekinetic Carrie White. And sure enough, Moretz has now confirmed her casting via Twitter:

Never been so happy in my life! Thank you Kim Pierce [sic] and thank u MGM for the chance of a lifetime i will never forget.

As sort-of referred to by a misspelling Moretz, the director on the new Carrie is Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry), who is now likely to be on the lookout for an actress to play Carrie’s nutzoid mother – a part taken by Piper Laurie in the De Palma version. Rumour has that Peirce is keen on either of Jodie Foster and Julianne Moore. Meanwhile, Moretz will next be seen alongside Johnny Depp in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, out in May.

Who says old movie trailers didn’t spoil everything.

    Chloe Moretz sounds so excited, like they’ve made her queen of the prom. I hope the studio isn’t playing a cruel trick on her.

    Do we need a remake of “Carrie”? I can understand the movie is a bit dated, nevertheless it’s still as good as any horror movie today. What next, a remake of “The Exorcist”?

      In the movie it was meant to be pigs’ blood. In reality it was corn syrup and food colouring.

    I like the casting though we never need a remake. I can’t say I’m upset they are redoing this for a new generation. I believe she is a damn good young actress and I can picture her in this role doing well.

    This remake of Carrie sounds good.Just let the scene at the prom be better than the original movie.I think CUJO should be remade too,if they did Carrie they can do CUJO.Both movies were very good and I know audiences will go see both movies just to see how the remake is done.REAL TALK.
