Carrie Remake Moving Forward
Source: Deadline
May 19, 2011


MGM and Screen Gems are moving forward with a new version of Stephen King's Carrie. Deadline has word that Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has been brought aboard to draft the screenplay.

Released in 1974, Carrie was King's first published novel and tells the story of a high school girl who, through telekinetic powers, takes revenge on peers that have mocked her.

Most famously adapted for the screen by Brian De Palma in 1976, Carrie received a sequel in 1999 and a made-for-TV adaptation in 2002. The story was also the basis for a famously-troubled Broadway adaptation in 1988 which has some coincidental ties to Aguirre-Sacasa's most recent gig, rewriting the Broadway show "Spider-man: Turn Off the Dark."

The new version of Carrie is said to be less a remake of the De Palma film and more a re-adaptation of the original text.

Scatter, I may very well borrow that line--it's a very good one indeed.

Oh no way! That movie is sacred to me. With the exception of John Travolta, I loved everyone in Carrie!  Sissie Spacek is soooo pitiful and her mean ol' nutcase of a mother! But my favorite part is the weird unsettling music she and William Katt (Tommy) are dancing to- right before "you-know-what" happens! That sticks in your head for days- no lyrics- just the moaning vocals of the song. The 70s had some freaky soundtrack music! But anyway, I don't think that I'll warm up to a redux!

Considering how high school girls act and treat each other today, 1976's "Carrie" is practically a Disney teen musical. But, in our post-Columbine society, won't school officials be afraid that bullied teenage girls will actively seek to develop telekinetic powers after seeing the remake?
