NEW CARRIE REMAKE FEATURETTE GIVES A FURTHER GLIMPSE AT THE CARNAGE TO COME

Carrie Banner 2

Opinion seems divided on the upcoming CARRIE remake. I, for one, am excitedly looking forward to it as (sacrilegious as it may seem), I have never been much of a fan of the DePalma version. I never felt a connection with the actors portrayals, even Sissy Spacek who did a good job, certainly, but even as a young outcast myself, I could never connect with her portrayal of Carrie White. I am, however, a fan of director Kimberly Peirce, and actors Chloë Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore.

We here at BackwoodsHorror.com have been following news of this remake since its early rumors and now, thanks to the folk over at DreadCentral, we have a mini-featurette with the director and some of the cast commenting upon the film. Check it out below! CARRIE will be hitting theaters October 18th. For more information, check out  WhatHappenedToCarrie.com.

Synopsis:

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 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.

MGM and Screen Gems’ CARRIE is directed by Kim Peirce and produced by Kevin Misher (Public Enemies). J. Miles Dale (The Vow) serves as executive producer, and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Big Love) wrote the script from King’s original story. CARRIE’s creative team includes Director of Photography Steve Yedlin (Looper), Production Designer Carol Spier (Eastern Promises), Costume Designer Luis Sequeira (The Thing), and Editor Lee Percy (Boys Don’t Cry).
