Chloe Moretz and Haley Bennett Being Considered for CarrieLike 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.

According to New York Magazine’s Vulture, the two main contenders are 15-year-old Chloë Moretz (Kick-Ass) and the 24-year-old Haley Bennett (Lawless). But wait! There’s more! The site also reports that for the role of Carrie’s unhinged fundamentalist mother, director Kimberly Peirce has approached Jodie Foster and is interested in Julianne Moore. Interesting. Tell us what you think below.

Carrie was previously turned into the 1976 film that starred Sissy Spacek, John Travolta, and Amy Irving with Piper Laurie as the repressive mother. In addition, in 2002 David Carson directed Angela Bettis as Carrie and Patricia Clarkson as her mother in a TV movie version written by Bryan Fuller.

The script for this latest reboot has been written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, whose rewrite work helped save Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark on Broadway. Aguirre-Sacasa set out to write a version of Carrie that is more faithful to the King book and more grounded than the Brian De Palma-directed original film.

    whoever gets cast, good luck losing the competition to sissy spacek before the movie even films.

  • will graham

    But what about the locker room shower scene? There’s no way they’re gonna do that with Moretz if they plan on remaining faithful to the book.
    Unless of course people don’t mind if it came out as pg-13, which I know some of you will.

    I don’t understand what’s wrong with the original. It seemed pretty true to the book to me.

    I have 0 interest in seeing this regardless of who they cast. No more remakes; especially when the original is well done.

  • Katsumi

    The only way I will be seeing this is if they go with Moretz and Moor, Foster is good but I see Moor playing the mother more then here

  • Terminal

    I’ll see this if it stars Moretz.

  • The Woman In Black

    If it has to be done, I vote Moretz and Foster.
