Quote:

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.

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

The original film got a sequel and also another tv remake. You know that Hollywood has ran out of ideas when they start remaking movies that already had a remake.:rommie:

Nope, that's business as usual in Hollywood almost since day one.

Example: The 1941 version of The Maltese Falcon starring Bogart was the third adaptation of Hammett's novel in 10 years. A remake of a remake. :)

Wasn't the movie Point of No Return with Bridget Fonda, essentially La Femme Nikkita too? Or was that the american version you were referring to?

Luc Besson must be really obsessed with this premise.


Also the most recent movie, Hanna and upcoming movie Columbiana with Zoe Saldana?

As for a Carrie remake. Good luck with that one! I'd much rather see a movie about tomorrow's "Rapture" and the 153 days of Judgement Day in October.

It's going to SUCK!!!!

Hollywood is more about making money than making good cinema.

Seems to be the trend these days. Take News outlets...they are more about their political agenda than reporting the news accurately and without bias.

We are living in the dark ages again.

Well, as with all remakes, I say: bring it on--if it's good.

But it will have to be a pretty good movie to measure up to DePalma's.

And frankly, most of the remakes of 70s horror classics that I've seen have been pretty weak. So I'm not all that optimistic.

Geez...

What made the original Carrie work was how creepy Suzy Spacek (sp?) was already.. She looked the part already and acted incredibly in the role.

To do this again right (but since when has that mattered 'see the Amityville Horror remake with Ryan Reynolds'), they would have to find an actress who already has that creepy vibe... Putting a flavor of the month pretty face into the role ain't gonna cut it..

The sequel that Amy Irving starred in had its moments... Especially when she was offed toward the end.. Didn't see that coming at all..

I see this movie turning into a CGI overload during the prom scenes.

I haven't really thought of Dakota as creepy, but I'll admit I can picture her being a really good choice for the role.

^ Agreed. Never thought of her as creepy but she could do the job very well.

Maybe they should go TV given that article in Gen discussing the networks' current love of period pieces.

The 70s were great years.

Sissy Spacek should play the mother.
