Judy Greer Says Pig’s Blood Scene In New ‘Carrie’ Will Look “Amazeballs…”

Kimberly Peirce is officially behind the camera for Carrie, the latest adaptation of Stephen King’s coming-of-age novella. The MGM/Screen Gems stars Chloe Moretz (Kick Ass, Let Me in), Julianne Moore (Hannibal), Alex Russell (Chronicle), Ansel Elgort, Gabriella Wilde (The Three Musketeers), Judy Greer (The Descendants) and Portia Doubleday (Youth In Revolt).

Principal photography started last month Toronto, Ontario. While they haven’t actually shot the pig’s blood scene yet, Greer – who plays the compassionate Mrs. Desjardin – has seen some tests and says it won’t disappoint. “It’s amazeballs… Weirdly, it’s kind of beautiful,” she told E! “It’s really totally jarring and creepy but also in a strange way gorgeous.” She also had kind things to say about Moretz, “ Chloë’s performance — and this is literal — has brought me to tears on set. She’s made me cry because I find her performance to be incredibly moving. I’m feeling a lot of compassion for her.

In the film, “The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Moore) and her daughter Carrie (Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson (Portia Doubleday, Youth in Revolt), but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde, The Three Musketeers), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (newcomer Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc.

    Okay, I’ve just added “Amazeballs” to my list of “Words that NEED to DIE!”. Already on the list are “Yolo”, “Redonkulous”, “Brohan” and “Interwebs”.

    Hearing amazeballs make me want to avoid this movie even more. I didn’t think that was possible. Keep cashing it in Hollywood!

      @Nothing333 dude – she’s actually a cool person who used a turn of phrase you don’t happen to like. Just a word, has nothing to do with the movie. Who knows if the movie will be any good or not?

    I’m pretty excited to see how this turns out, I don’t see anything wrong with doing another interpretation of a book, but remake arguments aside the film has a fantastic cast and seems to be under good direction. Is there a reason why everyone is more focused on the use of one word rather than the content of the article?

    Chloe is amazing! Can’t wait!!!

    Good point Aaron Emery, but for once people on here are griping less than usual about another remake. I could care less though, I like the original Carrie just fine and Ill see this remake if I borrow it from my local library some day.
