In the coming months young superstar Chloe Grace Moretz will transform into a psychic prom queen when she becomes the third person to channel the character Carrie, the title role in the latest adaptation of Stephen King’s coming-of-age novella.
In a new interview with Vanity Fair, the young starlette explains that she’s going to go under quite a transformation for the MGM reboot also starring Julianne Moore, Alex Russell, Ansel Elgort, Gabriella Wilde, Judy Greer and Portia Doubleday:
“I am changing everything about me—my hair, my look. I’m doing my own take on [the character],” she explains on the difference between her role and De Palma’s 1976 Carrie. “The script is totally different from the [original]. It’s more like the book. It’s a more Black Swan version—it messes with your mind. You’ll see things, and you don’t know if you’ve seen them.”
This time around, Moore will be playing her abrasive and psychotic mother. But Moretz feels they will still connect on set: “I don’t know if we are supposed to bond [because of our characters’ relationship], but I feel like we both will because we’re both cool.“
