Kimberly Peirce Talks ‘Carrie’ Remake

Posted by Sarah Anne Luoma On December - 14 - 2012 0 Comment

Director Kimberly Peirce has shared an update surrounding her upcoming ‘Carrie’ remake that stars actress Chloe Moretz in the title role and actress Julianne Moore as her mother. Talking to Total Film, Peirce spoke about her decision to adapt the 1976 Stephen King classic, showing her love for the popular horror story. “I really, deeply, honestly, 100 percent fell so in love with King’s writing and his characters. I love that it’s such a richly psychological book. It’s so dense.”

Peirce’s decision to tackle the story makes her the first female director to take on ‘Carrie’. Sounding confident about her adaption of the telekinetic teen, Peirce explained what she brings to the Stephen King story from a woman’s point of view. “I also know how girls act and get along with each other,” she explained. “I know how women use power too.” Adding how she focused in on what the most important piece of the story was for her. “I took a page out of the novel to really make it a mother/daughter story,” she said. “Carrie is your protagonist but the mother/daughter story is the heart and soul.” The ‘Carrie’ remake will arrive in theaters on March 15, 2013 with Moretz, Moore, Judy Greer, Portia Doubleday Gabriella Wilde, and Ansel Elgort.
