One of the most intriguing remakes currently being worked on has to be Kimberly Peirce’s upcoming remake of the iconic horror film, CARRIE.
Not only is it coming to us from Peirce, one of the indie world’s most original and interesting voices, but according to Deadline, Chloe Moretz has been offered the lead role in the picture, which follows a high school girl literally hell bent on getting revenge on her mean classmates.
Personally, I’m quite excited about this project. I’m not all that sure the film itself really needs a reboot, but the team of Moretz and Peirce are an amazing duo, and one that should do this project justice. I’m not entirely sold however, as Peirce’s last film, STOP-LOSS, was not her strongest hour, but that said, this is still looking to be one hell of a reboot. Shooting is set to start this year, so expect a lot more from this project over the next few months.
