    The original Carrie had the better actors. The remake was far more faithful to the book (with the exception of the ending) but the actors weren't as outstanding as with the first one.

    Wish they could have had the first actors in the second story.

    As for another remake? WHY?

    LOL!!:guffaw:

    Spacek isnt creepy looking IMO. Ginger girls just have a certain look about them (light eyelashes and eyebrows tends to give them a "blank" look), but it did add to the character so kudos for casting her in the first place.

    As for Spacek playing the mother...only if she could pull it off. Her presence doesn't say "psycho" to me but I haven't seen her act in eons so who knows.

    Didn't Megan Fox already do something like this? Well not exactly, but Jennifer's Body had supernatural elements in a high school with a school dance at the end.

    I agree. I hope studios are smart enough to stick with legitimate actors and not media trash.

    Yeah, the movies were pretty much the same. That movie flopped really badly. Makes me wonder why anyone would want her for this.

    Chloe Moretz picked for 'Carrie' remake

    http://www.cnn.com/2012/03/27/showbiz/ent-carrie-remake/index.html

    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. :rommie:
