Kim Peirce on Facebook
More coming out of the Carrie remake camp today. The latest comes from director Kimberly Peirce who took a moment recently to clue us in on what direction she’ll be taking with the flick, as well as what we can expect from star Chloe Moretz!
On her official Facebook page Peirce shared the follow with eager fans …
“I am modernizing the story as one has to in order to bring any great piece of work written in one era into the next and especially given how very relevant this material is right now.
Chloe is going deep into character to get this right….sewing her own dresses, spending time in her closet….and so much more….Thanks for all the great wishes. We are on it! And privileged to be working with such great source material.
Look for Kimberly Peirce’s take on Carrie to be in theatres on March 15, 2013.
In the story shy high school student Carrie White is raised by a nightmarish religious fanatic mother and comes to grip with devastating telepathic powers just as she reaches puberty. She eventually uses those gifts for lethal means when fellow classmates use the prom as an excuse to humiliate her before the entire school in a parable about bullying.
Sissy Spacek played the character in the first movie, with Piper Laurie playing her mother, and Amy Irving, Nancy Allen, John Travolta, Betty Buckley and William Katt rounding out the cast. Both Spacek and Laurie got Oscar nominations for their work in the 1976 film.
