The Sony Screen Gems remake of Carrie was originally set to hit theaters in March before it got pushed to its upcoming release date on October 18th. Now we know that the extra time allowed them to undergo some additional photography. The good kind, according to Chloe Grace Moretz.
She told Fangoria, “We actually prolonged the film, to be honest. We did some reshoots and added three extra scenes with Julianne and I to make the movie even deeper and darker. We prolonged a couple of scenes that needed to have an extra moment or an extra beat just to make it even deeper. It wasn’t about cutting anything out or trying to edit around things; it was about adding more to make the movie scarier and more intense.”
The film is “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. Brian De Palma’s 1976 film version of Carrie earned Oscar nominations for stars Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie.”
