Chloë Grace Moretz is set to play Carrie in the remake of the 1976 film Carrie, based off of Stephen King’s novel of the same name.
The amazing 15 year-old star of the 2010 movie Kick-Ass opened up about the remake, saying it’s very different from the original.
“…We’re doing something totally different and I’m trying to bring my own take into it,” she said. “It’s very different. Kimberly really put her hand into it and it’s like this dark Black Swan version. You’re going to be psychologically manipulated.”
Moretz added, “It will be scary but at the end of the day it’s going to be an amazing psychological thriller.”
Some scenes are a must-have, however, including the iconic blood scene during the school’s prom.
Moretz said, “I’m a little nervous, but we’re doing a lot of special effects to make the blood not too sticky.”
Judy Greer will be playing the role of Carrie’s gym teacher, who tries to sympathize and help Carrie. Greer gushed about the movie, saying it’s “amazeballs.”
“Weirdly, it’s kind of beautiful. It’s really totally jarring and creepy but also in a strange way gorgeous,” Greer said. “Chloë’s performance—and this is literal—has brought me to tears on set. She’s made me cry because I find her performance to be incredibly moving. I’m feeling a lot of compassion for her.”
Julianne Moore is to play Carrie’s crazy abusive mother.
Carrie is set to be released March 15, 2013.
