Casting is currently underway for Boys Don’t Cry director Kimberly Peirce’s Carrie, which Sony has officially slated for release on March 15, 2013. Kick-Ass and Let Me In‘s Chloe Moretz, who will also be in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, will star in the title role.

The Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa adaptation of the Stephen King thriller is “About the hyperkinetic teenager who gets pushed too far at the prom and wreaks havoc on her fellow high school students.” King’s bestselling book was turned into the 1976 film that starred Sissy Spacek, John Travolta, Amy Irving and Piper Laurie as the repressive mother. On Carrie, Aguirre-Sacasa will write a version that is more faithful to the King book than the earlier movie.

    I still think Saoirse Ronan would have been a better choice, but Chloe Moretz is very talented and it’ll be interesting to see her portrayal of Carrie.

      Saoirse Ronan, from Hanna, right? Well, considering the casting has already been chosen, we’ll just have to wait, and then when the damage is done we can finally decide who best fits the role.

      But yeah, you got a point there.

    I think they should have a little-known actress to play Carrie. This girl has just been in so much lately. I like her, but I’d like to see someone who hasn’t been in like 5 movies in the past 2 years.
