Yep, it’s really happening and it’s coming, very very soon. MGM‘s remake of the classic horror flick “Carrie” will arrive in time for next spring on March 15, 2013.
Based on the novel by Stephen King, and already made into the iconic 1976 film by Brian De Palma, this new contemporary effort has “Boys Don’t Cry” helmer Kimberly Peirce behind the camera, with Chloe Moretz playing the bullied high school girl who unleashes her telekinetic powers after she gets pushed too far. Casting will likely ramp up with the movie now less than a year away, and Jodie Foster and Julianne Moore have been early wishlist nominees for the role of the fundamentalist mother.
Right now, the movie doesn’t have much competition except “21 And Over” the directorial debut from “The Hangover” writers Jon Lucas and Scott More. Looks like in 2013, prom is coming early. [BoxOfficeMojo]
