CARRIE (Cast News)


With Chloe Moretz already locked to play the titular teenager, Columbia have reportedly got Julianne Moore in their sights to join her in their upcoming remake of classic horror film, Carrie.

According to Bloody Disgusting, the studio are currently "speaking closely" with Moore, who has been earmarked to play Carrie's mother, a fundamentalist Christian with some rather unreconstructed parenting techniques.

As you'll remember from Brian De Palma's original, Carrie's mother is a bit of a monster, ensuring that even the troubled teen's home is no refuge from the bullying that takes place at school, and the burgeoning telekinesis that's beginning to overcome her.

Adapted from the novel by Stephen King and directed by Boys Don't Cry helmer Kimberly Peirce, Carrie will open in the US on 15 March 2013, with a UK release date yet to be confirmed.
