So okay, the more I see about this film the more excited I am to see it. Chloe looks awesome as blood-splattered Carrie at the prom, and Julianne Moore is fantastic and I basically don’t think she can do any wrong, ever, so of course I’m excited to see her as Carrie’s mother.
That’s literally all I have to say about this today. Let me know what you think of these photos in the comments below!
So you know how they’re remaking Carrie? Well, they’ve offered the role of Margaret White, Carrie’s mother, to Julianne Moore.
Personally, I love Julianne Moore, and I think she’d be amazing as the insane, fanatic Margaret White. Assuming she signs on to do the film, I think the combination of Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore will be enough to ensure that it’s a good remake. I love the original, and I’d go see the remake regardless, but the fact that I love both of these bitches makes me really excited for this.
Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie both got nominated for Oscars for these roles when the original film was released in the 70′s, so hopefully Chloe and Julianne will live up to the expectations that I and all the other fans of the original have. I’m not particularly worried, Julianne’s amazing in everything (except maybe Evolution, which I haven’t seen.) and Chloe is fast becoming one of my favourite tween actresses.
There are so many Carrie characters in Hollywood that I’m probably going to have to rename my blog PopCarriePerversion. Okay, there’s just the two, isn’t there. But whatever, let’s get to it.
I’m so excited. Okay, let me start at the very beginning and say that Carrie is one of my favourite old slashers. It was the first R rated movie my parents let me see (although my Dad watched it with me and fast forwarded past the scene where the mean girl blows John Travolta in the car), and I loved it. As a side note, I love John Travolta. I also love the sequel The Rage: Carrie 2, which came out a couple of years after I saw the first one. Again, my dad watched it with me, but that was because I couldn’t get into the cinema to see it because I wasn’t 15 yet, and then I made him sit away from me and my friend because I was a bratty little cunt who was too cool to have parents when I was a teenager. Anyway, watch the trailer for the 1974 movie again so that you can recall how good this movie is:
Aside from loving Carrie, I’m also a big fan of Chloe Moretz. I think she’s adorable, I want her, Elle Fanning and Lourdes Leon to be the holy trinity of NYC socialites when they’re old enough. They’re the fiercest tweens in Hollywood. Also I thought she was good in 30 Rock, Kick-Ass, and Dirty Sexy Money (yes, I watched Dirty Sexy Money. And it was awesome.). Point is, I’m totally excited for this remake, and I’m very much for Chloe being Carrie. But who’s going to play the rest of the characters?
Let’s play dream cast, yeah?
Elizabeth Olsen would be that Sue Snell, who was Amy Irving’s character in the original:
The bitchy girl who is behind the pigs blood would be played by Zoey Deutch:
Carrie’s mother would be played by Kristine Sutherland, although she’s probably pushing it to play the mother to a high school girl now:
As for the boys, I actually can’t think of guy actors I like who’d be young enough to play the roles, so I’m going to keep their spots open for now. I don’t know, do you guys have any ideas? Post your dream cast in the comments and let’s all go see it together when it comes out in 2013. I’m not kidding. Put it in your calendars now.
