Back in August I visited the set of Screen Gems’ new remake of Stephen King’s Carrie, directed by Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry, Stop Loss).
My actual set visit you can find directly above this article, but I figured I’d publish a bullet point list for people who were too busy to read it right away and wanted to revisit the full report later in the day.
In theaters October 18, “A reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz), a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother (Julianne Moore), who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.”
Check it out below and look for more Carrie news out of SDCC this week!
“I think that as much as I can, I want it to be creepy and horrifying but real horror in the Kubrick sense. I absolutely love Kubrick, because it’s so scary and it’s so weird and it’s so real; but it’s so art directed and so surreal. ~ Kimberly Peirce
Peirce on the rating, “The movie is R rated, definitely. The thing that makes me happiest is… I like violence because I like looking at it. I like looking at and understanding emotional and physical violence and how they work with one another.”
