Now filming in Toronto, Canada is Sony Screen Gems’ remake of Carrie, which has Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry, Stop-Loss) in the director’s chair.
While we’ll have our own report forthcoming, the cast and crew have been using social avenues to share some really cool behind-the-scenes imagery that includes buckets of (pigs?) blood!
Starring Chloë Grace Moretz (Hugo), four-time Oscar nominee Julianne Moore (Hannibal, Crazy, Stupid, Love, The Kids are Alright), and Judy Greer (The Descendants), Carrie tells the supernatural tale of a telekinetic teenage girl tormented by her peers. Carrie is slated for a March 13, 2013 theatrical release.
“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), but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc.” Brian De Palma’s 1976 film version of Carrie earned Oscar nominations for stars Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie.
