Chloe Moretz picked for 'Carrie' remake
Los Angeles (CNN) -- "Kick-Ass" actress Chloe Moretz has been chosen for the title role in a movie remake of Stephen King's "Carrie," a horror story about a teenaged girl whose telekinetic powers turn a high school prom into an inferno.
The original 1976 movie, directed by Brian DePalma, launched John Travolta's film career and earned Oscar nominations for Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie.
Moretz, 15, tweeted about it Tuesday: "Never been so happy in my life! Thank you Kim Pierce and thank u MGM for the chance of a lifetime i will never forget!"
I like Moretz as an actress and think she is adorable, but isn't she WAY too pretty to play Carrie? At least they picked someone that's the right age for the part instead of a 26 year old actress like in the original.
Since Moretz is doing this thing, I might actually see it now.
