Coming Soon.net grabbed an interview with actress Chloe Moretz about her role in the forthcoming remake of Carrie.
The Kick-Ass star will play the title role which will be directed by Kimberly Peirce, adapted from Stephen King’s novel.
She said: “I start that June 1st. It’s going to be very well done. I don’t want to jinx it, but [Peirce] is a genius, genius, genius director. I would never do it with someone that I don’t trust. I trust her more than a lot of the directors I’ve worked with. She’s the right woman for the job.”
Brian De Palma directed the highly-acclaimed film version in 1976, however Moretz says that Peirce’s take on King’s debut novel would stick more closely to the original text.
“I’m actually not looking at the original,” she continued. “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. 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.”
Carrie will be released in 2013.
