As Kimberly Peirce ('Boys Don't Cry') prepares her difficult task of attempting to remake troubled teen horror 'Carrie'. But news that Julianne Moore ('Evolution') has now officially joined the cast to play Carrie's mother Margaret White will certainly go a long way to alleviate some of the pressure on the director. 'Carrie' of course will be played by the young and talented actress Chloe Moretz ('Dark Shadows', 'Kick-Ass'). Based on novel by horror author Stephen King the film was first adapted back in 1976 by Brian DePalma. This time around Peirce will direct from a script penned by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa ('Glee').
"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."
