If you thought that Chloe Moretz was too young and/or too cute to fill Sissy Spacek’s shoes in MGM’s upcoming Carrie remake, you might change your mind after seeing her doused in a bucket of blood. The image from Brian De Palma’s 1976 film is an iconic one and director Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry) seems to have done a decent job of recreating it here. But will the new film do anything to set itself apart or will it just coast by, content to hit all of the previous film’s familiar beats?
Carrie is currently in production in Toronto and this week EW has released two official photos from the movie. As you can see, the first one features Moretz as Carrie, but the other reveals Julianne Moore playing her abusive mother. While I think that Moretz will prove to be a solid choice, I’m not quite sold on Moore thus far. Check out larger versions of the photos after the jump along with some pics from the original for comparison.
