‘Boys Don’t Cry’ Director Spills Pig’s Blood For ‘Carrie’ Remake

Carrie

It looks as if the remake of Stephen King’s Carrie is still in the cards for MGM and Sony Screen Gems.

Kimberly Peirce is in talks to direct the redo of King’s thriller “about the telekinetic teenager who gets pushed too far at the prom and wreaks havoc on her fellow high school students,” reports Deadline.

Peirce is best known for helming another dysfunctional female coming of age tragedy, the Hilary Swank-starrer Boys Don’t Cry.

Carrie was previously turned into the 1976 film that starred Sissy Spacek, John Travolta and Amy Irving, with Piper Laurie as the repressive mother.

The script has been written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, whose rewrite work helped save Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark on Broadway. The site adds that Aguirre-Sacasa set out to write a version of Carrie that is more faithful to the King book, and more grounded than the Brian De Palma-directed film.
