Here we have a new featurette on the remake of Carrie, directed by Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry) and starring Julianne Moore (Boogie Nights, The Forgotten) and Chloe Grace Moretz (Let Me In, Kick-Ass). The original film was directed by Brian DePalma in 1976.
This certainly looks interesting, but looks like nothing new. In fact, this looks startlingly like DePalma’s film. I have seen the original (as have most people), and read the Stephen King novel upon which it is based, so I find it difficult to believe they have discovered something new to bring to the tale.
I am quite anxious to see this though. I am a fan of both Julianne Moore and Chloe Grace Moretz, and it will be interesting to see their take on these somewhat iconic characters. Have a look at the featurette, titled ‘Don’t Go To Prom’, here:
