Casting is still 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 has the title role and Deadline just double-confirmed our exclusive scoop from last month that Julianne Moore would be playing Carrie’s mother. Moore’s deal has now been finalized and now the production is close to hiring Gabriella Wilde (pictured below; The Three Musketeers).
Per Deadline, “Now the studio is negotiating with Gabriella Wilde for the the role of Sue Snell, the role originated by Amy Irving.”
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.
