We’ve already started to fangirl out about the upcoming Carrie remake staring Chloe Moretz. With all these new details emerging about the movie…might as well go all the way, right? Squee! “I start that June 1st,” Moretz told ComingSoon about shooting the film. “…It’s going to be very well done. I don’t want to jinx it…” Hey, as long as there are gallons of pig’s blood involved, consider our tickets Fandango’ed! If you guys aren’t quite so convinced yet, here are five reasons we’re pretty sure the new Carrie will be crowned queen:
2) It takes place today: “It’s set in modern times, so it’s a lot different,”Chloe told ComingSoon.” We wouldn’t be surprised if that means they’ll be focusing more on the bullying aspect of the novel…
3) It’s going to have that Black Swan steez: “It’s darker and much more psychological. More Black Swan,” Moretz explained. “You’re really looking into her mind and it really looks into the relationship of Margaret and Carrie.” Yup, the mother-daughter relationships are pretty similar between the two films. And pretty gross.
4) The director of the original Carrie Brian De Palma is besties with the director of the remake Kimberly Pierce. “De Palma’s movie is absolutely amazing,” Chloe told MTV at CinemaCon. “Kim is actually really good friends with De Palma, and they’re talking about the movie and they’re good friends, so we’re taking a lot of his notes.”
5) Chloe is going to make Carrie’s prom dress…herself…out of curtains: “One of my ideas for the character was to actually go and make my own dress, and I’m actually using my friend’s old drapes and making my own dress,” Moretz revealed to MTV. “And I’m going to sew it and everything, and I’m actually going to go out and wear it for a few weeks.” Wow, we are terrified at how excited we are for this movie. Just terrified.
