Bloody Disgusting did a little digging into the forthcoming remake of Carrie, which will feature Chloe Moretz in the title role, and Kimberly Peirce behind the camera.
With shooting slated for this coming June in Toronto, casting is under way for the ensamble that will push Carrie to the brink of madness, and ultimately to the death of hundreds of students.
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa penned the MGM/Screen Gems reboot that’s 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.
We’ve learned of the four main “teen” roles that surround CARRIE, beginning with SUE SNELL, a popular senior who struggles to become a better person after being part of a cruel bullying incident. Her redemption, and self-inflicted punishment, comes in that she will skip prom and instead send her boyfriend with Carrie. This leads to Sue having to confront Carrie in the big finale.
Supporting characters include CHRIS HARGENSEN, another senior who’s called the baddest and sexiest girl in school. Her character is insanely rich (dad’s a lawyer) and acts like an entitled brat. She manipulates everyone around her with her sexy charm, including her boyfriend BILL NOLAN, who is a high school dropout. He’s also one of the main antagonists who unleashes Carrie’s fury. Lastly, they’re casting TONNY ROSS, the popular jock character who takes Carrie to the prom, falls in love with her and accidentally sets the destruction in motion.
