Carrie is an upcoming 2013 American supernatural horror film. It is the third film adaptation of Stephen King's 1974 novel of the same name, though MGM and Screen Gems, who are producing the film, employed a script that is reportedly more faithful to King's original novel. The film stars Chloë Grace Moretz as the titular Carrie White, andJulianne Moore as Carrie's mother, Margaret White. Following the initial announcement of March 15, 2013 as the release date, the film's public launch was later postponed to October 18, 2013.

Production history

In May 2011, representatives from MGM and Screen Gems announced that the two companies were producing a film remake of Carrie. The two studios hired Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa to write a screenplay that delivers "a more faithful adaption" of King's novel—Aguirre-Sacasa previously adapted King’s workThe Stand into a comic book in 2008.[1]
Upon hearing of the new adaptation, King remarked, "The real question is why, when the original was so good?" He also suggested Lindsay Lohan for the main role and stated that "it [the film] would certainly be fun to cast".[2] Actress Sissy Spacek, who played Carrie in de Palma's adaptation, expressed an opinion on the choice of Lohan for the character of Carrie White, stating that she "was like, 'Oh my God, she's really a beautiful girl' and so I was very flattered that they were casting someone to look like me instead of the real Carrie described in the book. It's gonna be real interesting."[3] In March 2012, the role ofCarrie White was offered to Chloë Grace Moretz,[4] who accepted the role.[5]
Kimberly Peirce is the film's director,[6] while Moore stars as Margaret White andGabriella Wilde appears in the role of Sue Snell.[7] Alex Russell, who appears in the filmChronicle, and Broadway actor Ansel Elgort are also members of the main cast,[8] andJudy Greer plays the gym teacher Miss Desjardin.[9]

Promotion and release

The initial release date was March 15, 2013,[10] but in early January 2013 the release date was moved to October 18, 2013.[11][12]
Sony held a "First Look" event at the New York Comic Con on October 13, 2012 that allowed attendees to view the film prior to the release date. The event was followed by a panel session with several members of the cast and crew.[13]
Trailers for the film included a phone number that offered promotions to the caller, as well as a recording of a simulated encounter with characters from the film.[14]
