Updated: With higher quality pics!
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.
I was recently on set and – while I can’t say anything about it yet – I can share these pics that EW got their hands on. They feature Chloe Moretz in one of Carrie‘s most iconic moments as well as a look at Julianne Moore in character as Margaret White. It should be noted that this picture looks like it’s from later in the movie – after the prom. You’ll notice she’s outside.
The film also stars Judy Greer (The Descendants), Alex Russell (Chronicle), Gabriella Wilde and Portia Doubleday. Carrie tells the supernatural tale of a telekinetic teenage girl tormented by her peers. “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.
Head inside for the pics! Carrie is slated for a March 13, 2013 theatrical release.
