Following up on an earlier story about stars in contention to play the lead role in the next adaptation of the Stephen King tale Carrie, MGM has officially made an offer for the part.
Like it or not, a remake of Carrie is well on its way, and the search for the Stephen King-created crazy-ass psychokinetic teenaged lunatic has been narrowed down to two possible choices. Read on for details.
It isn't often, but when opportunities like this come along, we wish we lived closer to New York City. Carrie has returned to the stage in a newly revised Off-Broadway production that began January 31, and to help make up for the fact that many of us won't be able to see it, we have a trio of stills to share.
We've been talking about Carrie the Musical for quite some time here on Dread Central, and with its premiere date of January 31st creeping up on us, the MCC Theater has dropped some eye candy and more!

With performances beginning on January 31, 2012, it was inevitable that word would start trickling out regarding the final casting lineup for Carrie, the newly reworked and re-imagined production of the short-lived 1988 Broadway musical being performed at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.

When MGM announced that they would be remaking the Stephen King classic Carrie, again, the door to bad ideas literally flew open. While we pray the movie succeeds, we just know it's going to be put in the hands of the teen-friendly Prom Night film crew or someone of the like. (Please. Someone prove us wrong.) But the disturbing ideas do not end there ...
It was just yesterday that MGM announced it was looking to resurrect Stephen King's Carrie in remake form, and today the man himself adds his two cents to the situation. Read on for the details.
"THEY'RE ALL GONNA LAUGH AT YOU!!!" I've had that sentence ringing in my head since the very first time I saw the first screen version of Stephen King's Carrie. Looks like MGM is ready to jump-start that psycho-kinetic laughter once more.
