Warm up the bucket of pig blood ? we?re getting closer to finding us a Carrie! A gaggle of actresses have been reading for the lead role in Kimberly Peirce?s adaptation of Stephen King's book (which will reportedly hew closer to the source than Brian DePalma's 1976 horror classic), and now we're told the field has narrowed to two main contenders: the 15-year-old Chlo? Moretz (Kick-Ass) and the 24-year-old Haley Bennett, who is starring with Ryan Gosling in Terrence Malick's next project, Lawless.

These two sit at the top of a list of candidates that has included such young up-and-comers as Dakota Fanning (all growed up and, lately, a Volturi in Twilight), Emily Browning (Sucker Punch), Bella Heathcote (In Time), and Lily Collins (Mirror Mirror), who have all read for Peirce. We also hear that earlier this week, The Descendants' Shailene Woodley passed on an offer from MGM to take the title role.

Meanwhile, we're also told that for the role of Carrie's unhinged fundamentalist mother, Peirce has approached Jodie Foster and is interested in Julianne Moore. It's not so strange to aim for past Oscar winners for a horror flick: After all, both Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie (who played her mom) got nominated for the film.

Actually, I'm more concerned that it will get compared to Chronicle instead

of the other way around: Kid gets picked on and ends up using superpowers

for revenge.

Original is a classic. This is bound to be incredibly awful just based on the times we now live in. I can only imagine all of the high school stereotypes that are going to make their way into the film. Oh well, another movie Hollywood is going to taint forever due to not wanting to take a risk on original ideas

Chloe Moretz is Carrie!

After meeting and reading a group of young actresses for Carrie, MGM and director Kim Peirce have made their decision and made the formal offer today to Chloe Moretz, reports Deadline.

If negotiations work out, she'll play the title role in the remake of the Brian DePalma original that was based on the 1974 Stephen King bestseller. She's expected to play the shy high school student "Carrie White, who is raised by a nightmarish religious fanatic mother, and comes to grip with devastating telepathic powers just as she reaches puberty. She eventually uses those gifts for lethal means when fellow classmates use the prom as an excuse to humiliate her before the entire school in a parable about bullying."

Sissy Spacek played the character in the first movie, with Piper Laurie playing her mother, and Amy Irving, Nancy Allen, John Travolta, Betty Buckley and William Katt rounding out the cast. Both Spacek and Laurie got Oscar nominations for their work in the 1976 film.

Moretz is building an impressive resume from Let Me In to Kick-Ass, (500) Days of Summer, Hugo and the forthcoming Tim Burton-directed Dark Shadows with Johnny Depp.

Yes, a forgettable 2002 TV movie (NBC) starring Angela Bettis. An hour too long, a Tommy Ross that looked 30+, and a narrative that was boring.

Sucked.

Principal photography has commenced in Toronto, Ontario on the highly anticipated horror film CARRIE, it was announced today by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) and Screen Gems. Director Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don?t Cry; Stop-Loss) reimagines Stephen King?s best-selling novel for MGM and Screen Gems? take on the enduring genre classic. Starring Chloe Grace Moretz (Hugo), four time Oscar-nominee Julianne Moore (Crazy, Stupid, Love; The Kids are Alright) and Judy Greer (The Descendants), CARRIE tells the supernatural tale of a telekinetic teenage girl tormented by her peers. CARRIE is slated for a 2013 theatrical release.

The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Moore) and her daughter Carrie (Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson (Portia Doubleday, Youth in Revolt), but only Chris? best friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde, The Three Musketeers), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (newcomer Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc. Brian De Palma?s 1976 film version of CARRIE earned Oscar nominations for stars Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie.

MGM and Screen Gems? CARRIE is directed by Kimberly Peirce and produced by Kevin Misher (Public Enemies). J. Miles Dale (The Vow) serves as executive producer and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Big Love) wrote the script from King?s original story. CARRIE?s creative team includes Director of Photography Steve Yedlin (Looper), Production Designer Carol Spier (Eastern Promises),Costume Designer Luis Sequeira (The Thing) and Editor Lee Percy (Boys Don?t Cry).

Wonder if this will be set in the 70's again, if so, it might work.

It's supposedly being updated to be set in the present day.

Yeah this goes in my doesnt need a remake basket. I'll wager a fine crisp $10 bill says the 1970 version still comes out on top.
