Here we see Chloë Grace Moretz this past Tuesday on the Toronto set of her remake of Carrie, which is based more on the 1974 Stephen King novel than Brian DePalma’s 1976 classic thriller about a high school girl who unleashes her telekinetic powers on the cruel classmates who relentlessly bully her.
I am not exactly a fan of the concept of remaking a film that doesn’t need to be remade, but I am willing to keep an open mind — especially since the filmmakers seem willing, even eager, to put a different spin on it.
Chloe, 15, told Vanity Fair magazine: “I am changing everything about me — my hair, my look… I’m doing my own take on [Carrie White]. The script is totally different from the [1976 movie]. It’s more like the book. It’s a more Black Swan version — it messes with your mind. You’ll see things, and you don’t know if you’ve [really] seen them.”
