Chloe Moretz talks new ‘Carrie’ film, more from the book
The young star of the superhero film “Kick Ass” will be tackling the lead role in the “Carrie” remake, but tells Coming Soon that the new film will feature more of the book and not the Brian DePalma original.
“I’m actually not looking at the original, even though De Palma’s movie was one of the best movies ever made. It’s completely iconic and I’m proud to be able to be doing a retooling of it. We’re kind of going off the book.”
Moretz is part of the ensemble cast for Tim Burton’s “Dark Shadows” which lands in theaters on May 11th. Continuing with darker, edgier roles, the young starlet cites “Black Swan” as an inspiration.
“It’s darker and much more psychological. More “Black Swan.” You’re really looking into her mind and it really looks into the relationship of Margaret and Carrie. It’s set in modern time, so it’s a lot different.”
Moviegoers will never forget Sissy Spacek as the title character in the 1976 film, so what should fans expect from this modern version.
“It’s something that’s very different from me. It’s an out of body thing. I’m becoming a totally different person for it. I’m letting go of all of my self-esteem issues and just kind of going into it. You have to.”
Directed by Kimberly Pierce, “Carrie” will co-star Julianne Moore as Carrie’s mother Margaret.
The film is scheduled to comes to theaters on March 15, 2013.
