‘Carrie’ Remake Pushed To Halloween 2013
The Carrie remake from director Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry) has received a new release date, The Hollywood Reporter has shared. The Screen Gems and MGM horror film will now hit theaters on October 18th 2013, just in time for Halloween. The movie was initially targeting a March 15th 2013 debut date.
For the unknown, the ‘Carrie’ remake stars actress Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass) in the title role with seasoned performer Julianne Moore (The Kids are Alright) playing her mother, Margaret White. Judy Greer (Californication), Gabriella Wilde (The Three Musketeers) and Portia Doubleday (Youth in Revolt) also star.
The remake of the abused teenage girl with telekinesis comes thirty-seven years after the original film directed by Brian De Palma, adapted from the novel of writer Stephen King. The 1976 original included a cast line up of performers Sissy Spacek (The Help), Piper Laurie (Hesher) and Amy Irving (Alias).
The new release date will place ‘Carrie’ in competition with ‘Paranormal Activity 5’ that is due out in theaters on October 25, 2013. Screen Gems has also changed the release date for their thriller ‘No Good Deed’. Not the only production company to make revisions to their slate, Sony and Tristar have announced several new dates as well.
