We’ve received some inside Intel, which
should strictly be considered rumor until we’re able to strongly confirm our source we have 100% confirmed, that the star of Pan’s Labyrinth and The New Daughter is the frontrunner to star as sexy bad girl “Chris” in Screen Gems and MGM’s Carrie remake.

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.
