Speaking of Dean Cundey…

Check out the following unseen footage from 1978, where John Carpenter was in pre-production on Halloween.
“This is the first ever Panaglide test by Dean Cundey and Ray Stella back in 1978; right before Halloween‘s principal photography began,” Kirkus explains. “[It was] filmed outside and inside the Panavision studio. Halloween was the 4th movie to use this system.”
Trolling forums, he explains the footage: “The first part is Dean Cundey at the camera, then Ray Stella. Krishna Rao is also there too. Notice the station wagon, that is the Myers parents car from the first scene.”
He also states that this is just “one clip of rolls of 35mm film I have of footage from the original Halloween (both behind-the-scenes footage, and film from the actual production). This footage is not color-corrected and just quickly transferred by Don May, Jr. few years ago. The actual film footage is of much, much better quality.”
Want to see more of the lost Halloween footage? He says to contact Trancas International Films and let them know you want to see the “Unseen Halloween.”

Not long ago, we gave you some behind the scenes photographs of Chloe Moretz in costume as Carrie White on the set of the CARRIE remake. Now we have behind the scenes photos (courtesy of Egotastic) of Gabriella Wilde on set working out as Sue Snell.
Kimberly Peirce (BOYS DON’T CRY) is directing the latest adaptation of Stephen King’s coming-of-age novella, CARRIE. The MGM/Screen Gems reboot has announced the full casting including Chloe Moretz (Kick Ass, Let Me in), Julianne Moore (Hannibal), Alex Russell (Chronicle), Ansel Elgort, Gabriella Wilde (The Three Musketeers), Judy Greer (The Descendants) and Portia Doubleday (Youth In Revolt).
“The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Moore) and her daughter Carrie (Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson (Portia Doubleday, Youth in Revolt), but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde, The Three Musketeers), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (newcomer Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc.”
