CARRIE is getting a remake

Carrie is a classic thriller/horror story from Stephen King, and now Hollywood is looking to create a remake.

According to Deadline, Kimberly Peirce is in talks to direct the new Carrie still based on King’s novel. Peirce is known for directing projects like Stop-Loss, and Boys Don’t Cry with Hilary Swank.

The original 1976 film starred Sissy Spacek as the telekinetic teenager who gets pushed over the edge at the prom and ends up going crazy on her classmates. And I’m pretty sure that’s the best way to describe it. 

The new script comes from Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa whose most recent credit is for rewriting the Broadway project Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark. Aguirre-Sacasa’s remake is planned to be more faithful to the book and “more grounded than the Brian De Palma-directed film.”

Along with Spacek in the original it also starred John Travolta and Amy Irving along with Piper Laurie as the mother.
