Casting Update: Portia Doubleday & Judy Greer Join Carrie Remake

Portia Doubleday & Judy Greer are joining Chloe in the Carrie remake.

MGM and Screen Gems have set Portia Doubleday to play bad girl Chris Hargensen and Judy Greer to play the gym teacher Miss Desjardin in the Kim Peirce-directed Carrie remake. Nancy Allen played Hargensen in the original and Betty Buckley played the sympathetic gym teacher who comforts Carrie White when she menstruates and doesn’t understand what is happening because of the guilt hammered into her by her repressive mother. Hargensen triggers Carrie’s telekinetic powers with an atrocious prom prank. The film stars Chloe Moretz as Carrie White, Julianne Moore is playing her mother, while Gabriella Wilde plays Sue Snell.

Chloë Grace Moretz on Carrie Remake & Being an Official “Face of the Future”

Check out Chloe’s interview with Vanity Fair at Max Mara Cocktail Party on Monday:

On Monday night, Chloë Grace Moretz took a welcome respite from her supernatural summer jobs—after a shape-shifting turn in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, she’s begun preparing for MGM’s Carrie remake in the title role—to be honored as the 2012 Max Mara Face of the Future. Before formally accepting the award, Moretz was toasted at a cocktail soirée at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood, co-hosted by the Italian fashion house and V.F.’s West Coast editor, Krista Smith. Just as the sun was aptly setting over the hotel’s terrace, the 15-year-old starlet—whose many film faces have included a vigilante killer in Kick-Ass, a wise-beyond-her-years little sister in (500) Days of Summer, and a Parisian orphan in Martin Scorsese’s Hugo—confided in about her awards-ceremony jitters and making Carrie.

“I’m nervous more than anything,” Moretz said of the speech she’s set to give tonight at the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards, where she’ll be presented with the Max Mara honor. “And a little tired because I just flew back Saturday. I agree with everything about Women in Film. I don’t have a speech ready—but I do, but I don’t. I hate crowds! I was never a stage actor—a live audience is different entirely.”

Although floored by the award, which has been given to Elizabeth Banks, Emily Blunt, and Zoe Saldana in years past, Moretz explained that she’s much more comfortable with the intimacy of a film set. Such as that of Carrie, director Kimberly Pierce’s upcoming reboot that will star Moretz in Sissy Spacek’s Oscar-winning role.
