Cool Photo: See the NEW Carrie drenched in pig’s blood!!!

Chloe Moretz herself, was the first to release this photo still from the upcoming “Carrie”, remake. She released it herself exclusively on her instagram page. Stephen King himself, is not involved with the new “Carrie” remake, at all. Which is a good thing actually. I’m a big Stephen King fan, but mostly a fan of his writing. Most of his movies are garbage with the exception of “The Shawshank Redemption”, “The Green Mile”, “Misery”, “Needful Things”, “Pet Sematary”, “Stand By Me”, and “Dreamcatcher” which I thought were really good films.

I didn’t even care for Depalma’s version of “Carrie” that much, it didn’t follow the book hardly at all. So I’m hoping the remake will stay faithful to the book. I plan on re-reading “Carrie” soon.

See Chloe drenched in pig’s blood here. I hope they do the film justice, and hope they make it better than the Depalma version. Sissy Spacek was a great Carrie White, don’t get me wrong, it’s just that the script was really bad. Could the remake do the prom scene just as good? I’m hoping!

Report: “Carrie” remake with Chloe Moretz will hit theaters March 15, 2013…that’s next year, folks!!!

The Stephen King remake of “Carrie” which will star, Chloe Moretz, and Julianne Moore has been added to the casting. Julianne will be playing Carrie’s abusive mother.

More on the story, here.

I love the “Carrie” story. It’s one of my favorite King books too. I know a lot of people are wondering if this remake will be similar to Brian Depalma’s 1976 version, but this new version could be totally different than that. Maybe the remake wants to stay more faithful from the book?

Depalma’s version probably left out so much from the book and probably changed the story around some. In fact, I think the ending between Depalma’s versin of the film and King’s book are totally different. I’ll explain the ending to both with a spoiler warning at the end of this blog post.

I’m not sure of the plot for the “Carrie” remake but it might be slightly different than the Depalma version. “Carrie” is clearly a revenge story. A troubled young girl getting back at her high school who treated her terribly. So she uses her telekinetic powers for retaliation.

She probably will get splattered with pig’s blood but will it be real or CGI???? I hope they don’t use CGI blood.

Here’s the plot to the ending between King’s version and Depalma’s version ****************SPOILERS****************

The ending to Depalma’s version. After the prom scene, Carrie goes back home to her mother. Her mother thinks the devil has taken over Carrie, so she stabs Carrie in the back. Carrie falls down the stairs, so they fight in the kitchen. Carrie uses her powers to make their home collapse with them in it. Later on Sue, a survivor of the prom, has a dream where she is at Carrie’s house where it used to be. Sue places flowers on the ground, a bloody hand reaches and grabs Sues wrist.

Kings version of ending “Carrie” After the prom, Carrie goes home to confront her mother. Carrie’s Mother thinks she’s gone mad, and Carrie kills her own mother, by stopping her heart, using her powers. That’s where Chris and Billy were at the time, so they try to kill Carrie by running her over with a car, but instead, Carrie kills them using her powers. Carrie collapses due to the blood loss. Sue walks to the roadhouse where she finds Carrie laying in the parking lot. They talk telekinetic powers and Carrie blames Sue for it. The book ends with Sue writing a memoir titled, “My Name Is Susan Snell”. She also gets a letter by a woman from Tennesse who has a niece developing telekinetic powers.

***************************END SPOILER******************

You decide which ending they could use for the remake. I’d say they would use King’s version, but they could totally make their own original ending if they wanted as well.

Report: Chloe Moretz is the new Carrie White!!!

MGM studios is in negotiations with young actress, Chloe Moretz (she’s 15), to star as Carrie White in the remake of Stephen King’s, “Carrie”. While this is a nice choice, Chloe and Sissy do look pretty similar to each other, almost like sisters! Sissy played the character when she was 27, so it looks like they are going for younger casting. If you don’t know who Chloe Moretz is, you might have seen her in the film, “Kick-Ass” (she played Hit Girl), and the vampire film, “Let Me In”.

I think a “Carrie” remake, could be pretty good if they did it right. I just hope they don’t ruin the prom scene. The original prom scene from the 1976 film was the best part of the whole movie and the remake might not be able to top it. Who knows, we just might have to wait and see. I’m curious.

Deadline, reports.

Report: Sissy Spacek finally gets a star for the Hollywood Walk of Fame!!! It’s about damn time too!!

Sissy Spacek who rose to fame for her role in Stephen King’s “Carrie” finally gets a star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It’s about time too. Why does this have to happen now when this should have happened to her a long time ago? Congrats Sissy!

More on the story, here.

I’ll be going on vacation to Los Angeles, California to visit family members that moved there in the Fall and I’m probably going to check out the Walk of Fame. I’m looking forward to checking out L.A. for the first time as I never been to Hollywood before. Always wanted to. Soon I’ll be able to in Oct. I’ve been to San Diego in California but never Los Angeles yet.

Report: Stephen King wants Lilo to play the new Carrie…

The new “Carrie” remake has found it’s writer. MGM has hired play writer, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa to pen the script for the new “Carrie” re-boot. Stephen King himself speaks to Entertainment Weekly about his opinion on the remake.

Stephen says he loves the original “Carrie” movie that was directed by Brian Depalma. He says if they could get Lindsay Lohan to star as the new Carrie White and get either David Lynch or David Cronenberg to direct it, he might like the remake.

Read his statement about the “Carrie” remake, here.

If you think Stephen loves all of his movies that were based on his books, then you are wrong. King is a very honest man. He isn’t afraid to say if one of his movies is really bad and he always hated Kubrick’s version of “The Shining” starring Jack Nicholson.

Another thing, the new “Carrie” remake needs to have a cameo appearance by Sissy Spacek herself. A “Carrie” remake could be good if made right. It needs a good script, good casting, and good directing.
