Update #1: Bloody Disgusting has learned that Greer has not been cast and no casting decisions for the role of the gym teacher have been made. Exclusive: This morning we reported that Pan’s Labyrinth and The New Daughter star Ivana Baquero was the frontrunner for Sony Screen Gems and MGM’s remake of Carrie. Not only have we confirmed our exclusive report (update: she unfortunately did not land the role, her manager tells us), but we have some more exciting casting to share!
Bloody Disgusting has landed first news that Gabriella Wilde has been officially tapped to play “Sue”, while Judy Greer (pictured below; The Village, Cursed) in talks (this means that she has NOT signed on yet) to play the “Gym Teacher”.
They’ll all star alongside Chloe Moretz, Julianne Moore, Alex Russell, Ansel Elgort, with Moretz taking the title role and Moore playing her psychotic mother.
Kimberly Peirce directs the 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.
The homecoming dance goes up in flames March 15, 2013.
