Chloe Moretz Cast in ‘Carrie’ Movie

YAY! Chloe has officially been offered the role as Carrie in “Carrie” movie earlier today.

fter meeting and reading a group of young actresses for Carrie, MGM, Screen Gems and director Kim Peirce have made their decision and made the formal offer today to Chloe Moretz. If negotiations work out, she’ll play the title role in the remake of the Brian DePalma original that was based on the 1974 Stephen King bestseller. She’s expected to play the shy high school student Carrie White, who is raised by a nightmarish religious fanatic mother, and comes to grip with devastating telepathic powers just as she reaches puberty. She eventually uses those gifts for lethal means when fellow classmates use the prom as an excuse to humiliate her before the entire school in a parable about bullying. Sissy Spacek played the character in the first movie, with Piper Laurie playing her mother, and Amy Irving, Nancy Allen, John Travolta, Betty Buckley and William Katt rounding out the cast. Both Spacek and Laurie got Oscar nominations for their work in the 1976 film.

The studio and Peirce have been meeting with actresses for the past two weeks. Word all along was that while names like Dakota Fanning were circulating, Peirce and the studio had an eye on Moretz. The studio denied it at the time, but what actually happened is, Moretz didn’t meet with Peirce until last weekend. She got the job immediately. Moretz, who first came on with performances in Kick-Ass, (500) Days Of Summer and Let Me In, is at the top of the crop of young actresses. Coming off Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, her next major film is the Tim Burton-directed Dark Shadows with Johnny Depp. She’s repped by WME and 3 Arts. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa wrote the script and Kevin Misher’s producing.

Insiders said that once they make Moretz’s deal, they will focus on landing the psycho mom and supporting cast and they will shoot this year.

Chloe Moretz & Haley Bennett Are The Finalists For The Carrie Remake

Chloe is one of the finalists for the remake of Carrie:

It seems that after nearly a year of being in development the Carrie remake is now in the heart of pre-production. Kimberly Peirce, director of Boys Don’t Cry has been attached to the project for almost three months now, but one major component still missing is an actress for the title role. We’ve heard rumors before, including ones about Megan Fox and Hailee Steinfeld, but there has been no official word. Today Vulture apparently got their hands on the two finalists for the part.

The site says that both Chloe Moretz, best known for playing Hit Girl in Kick Ass, and Haley Bennett, who will be seen alongside Ryan Gosling in Terence Malick’s Lawless, are finalists for the lead in Carrie. The two actresses have beat out a lot of big names thus far, including Dakota Fanning, Emily Browning, Bella Heathcote, and Lily Collins, all of whom read for the director. But just because Moretz and Bennett are now the big names being looked at, doesn’t mean they always were: the report says that Shailene Woodley, who showed off her incredible talent in last year’s The Descendants, was offered the character but turned it down. What’s interesting about Moretz and Bennett is that there is quite a large age gap between them. Moretz is only 15 years old while Bennett has reached the age of 24.

But there isn’t only one big role inCarrie; there’s also the part of the tortured girl’s mother than needs to be cast. Vulture says that Jodie Foster has been approached about playing the unhinged woman while Julianne Moore is also being considered.

I’m thinking that the people in charge of casting somehow don’t get what Carrie is about because you can’t cast a pretty young actress in the part. The character is a tortured, meek girl who is constantly bullied by everyone in her life. That’s not exactly a part that should be highlighted by glamour.
