It's incredible how a horror project sits gathering dust for so long and as soon as its pulled off the shelf things start moving quicker than we can report it. Bloody Disgusting have got wind of some potential casting news for the new Kimberly Peirce ('Boys Don't Cry') helmed remake of 'Carrie'. Chloe Moretz ('Dark Shadows', 'Kick-Ass') is already on board as the little telekinetic terror 'Carrie', based on the novel by Stephen King, but it appears that Columbia Pictures is in talks with actress Julianne Moore ('Evolution') to play the role of Margaret White ('Carrie's mum) originally portrayed by Piper Laurie in the 1976 version helmed by Brian De Palma. How do you guys feel about that? Is it a good potential casting decision?
"The story of Carrie White, a girl brought up, almost in isolation, by her psychotically religious mother Margaret. After an embarrassing incident in the showers causes her fellow pupils to tease Carrie ruthlessly, her teacher Miss Desjardin disciplines them severely. Determined to have revenge, the other students hatch a plot against Carrie, which turns horribly wrong when Carrie's strange mental powers are unleashed during the school prom."
'Carrie' will open on 15 March 2013.
