If you’re looking for a horror fix this October, then MGM and Screen Gems has you covered with Kimberly Peirce’s new adaptation of Stephen King’s classic horror novelCarrie. For those unfamiliar with the story, it centers on a bullied teenage girl (played by Chloe Grace Moretz) who discovers that she has telekinetic powers and decides to dish out retribution against her tormentors including her abusive mother (played by Julianne Moore). For more on the film, watch the first clip, check out a bunch of new images with a cool viral video, and read Adam’s 25 things to know from his set visit and his interviews with Moretz, Peirce, and Judy Greer.
A few days ago, I got to speak with Judy Greer in Los Angeles. She talked about what her friends and family thought when she told them she’d be remaking Carrie, the challenge of making a movie where the lead actress is under eighteen, whether anything change during production, deleted scenes, and more. In addition, Greer told a great story about reading the script for Tomorrowland for the first time and her emotional reaction. Hit the jump to watch.
