REMAKE ALERT -- Carrie
So once again there's going to be a Carrie remake. I lost count of how many Carrie's were made but...it's ok. Director Kim Peirce and MGM have decided to make the formal offer yesterday to Chloe Moretz.
Those of you who don't know young Chloe Moretz, she played many, many movies such a Amityville Horror--the remake, Kick-Ass, Let Me In, and the upcoming comedy horror Dark Shadows. So of course, I see why they offered the role to her! I have nothing against Chloe, she's an awesome actress and super cute!
However...I do wish they would have went for someone new and unknown. Then again...this world we live in does not like new and especially unknown. So, if she accepts, she'll play Carrie White, a shy high school girl who gets teased in school and has a religious fanatic nightmare of a Mother. But soon, she will come to discover her telepathic powers at the arrival of puberty. Of course, the big bang of the movie is when she's going to use her lethal powers against her classmates during prom.
In the original 1976 film, Sissy Spacek played Carrie White and did a pretty fantastical job! Whelp, let's all hope for the best...especially if we go to theaters to watch it and have to deal with squealing preteens with a mouth full of braces, cell phones with ultra neon lights to text, and their lethal, annoying, stab at the heart giggles.
