Moretz Goes To The Prom As Carrie White

March 28, 2012

Chloe Moretz (“Hugo,” “Kick-Ass“) shared the news via her Twitter feed she’s won the role of Carrie in the upcoming remake of Carrie.

24-year-old actress Haley Bennett was in contention as well after Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) recently turned down the part.

Based on author Stephen King‘s book–the 1976 version directed by Brian De Palma is a horror classic about a timid and tortured girl (Sissy Spacek) who uses her telekinetic powers to punish her tormentors

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, a playwright who was brought in to rework the troubled Broadway production Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark, is writing the new script which is said to be both more faithful and more realistic than the previous 1976 version.

Dakota Fanning, Emily Browning (Sucker Punch), Bella Heathcote (In Time) and Lily Collins (The Blind Side) have all auditioned for the role in the past for director Kimberly Peirce (“Boys Don’t Cry“)

Never been so happy in my life! Thank you Kim Pierce and thank u MGMfor the chance of a lifetime i will never forget” says Moretz.

Peirce is looking for a high-profile actress to play Carrie’s mother and is talking to Jodie Foster and Julianne Moore, played in the original De Palma film by Oscar nominee Piper Laurie.
