Back in the original 1976 adaptation of Carrie, Piper Laurie played Margaret White (above), the insane mother of poor Carrie. While it turns out she was right on the money, Margaret was an insanely abusive parent that further drove Carrie into the film’s climactic events. What actress carries enough prowess to take on such a emotional role in the Kimberly Peirce-directed reboot.
Bloody Disgusting got exclusive inside word that Columbia Pictures is speaking closely with Julianne Moore (pictured below) for the titular role. Moore is no stranger to the genre having starred alongside Hannibal Lecter in Hannibal and has also played Lila Crane in the Psycho remake. She is currently working on the exorcism fantasy The Seventh Son for Warners.
Chloe Moretz stars as Carrie in the reboot going behind cameras for a March 13, 2013 release.
The thriller is “An adaptation of the Stephen King thriller 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 writes a version that is more faithful to the King book than the earlier movie.
