Chloe Moretz says her Carrie remake will be dark and psychological


30 April 2012

Kick Ass heroine Chloe Moretz has spoken out about her upcoming role in the remake of Stephen King's Carrie revealing that the new take will be darker, more psychological.

The Hugo actress takes on the title role, following in the footsteps of Sissy Spacek and with filming beginning on June 1 under the direction of Kimberly Peirce, the young actress tells ComingSoon.net "It's going to be very well done. I don't want to jinx it, but Peirce is a genius, genius, genius director, I would never do it with someone that I don't trust. I trust her more than a lot of the directors I've worked with. She's the right woman for the job.

I'm actually not looking at the original, even though De Palma's movie was one of the best movies ever made, it's completely iconic, and I'm proud to be able to be doing a retooling of it. We're kind of going off the book.

It's darker and much more psychological. More Black Swan. You're really looking into her mind and it really looks into the relationship of Margaret and Carrie. It's set in modern time, so it's a lot different."

Moretz could be seen in Carrie with Oscar nominee Julianne Moore who has been offered the role of Carrie's mother Margaret White.

Moretz will next be seen in tim Burton's Dark Shadows on May 11 alongside Johnny Depp.
