Meet the new Carrie: Hugo’s Chloe Moretz

Meet the new Carrie: Hugo’s Chloe Moretz
March 27, 2012 Constant Readers

The feral ingenue from Kickass, Chloe Moretz, has been tapped to play the title character in a new MGM remake of Carrie. While she seems exactly zero scary, the whole Sissy Spacek creepy angle didn’t work for me in the original movie, so maybe the transformation from adorable blonde thing to psychokinetic lunatic will be perfect. Moretz, who inexplicably spoke with an English accent along with everyone else in Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, will be directed by Boys Don’t Cry filmmaker Kim Pierce.

Andrea: Did you hear that they cast Chloe Moretz in the Carrie remake?
Pat: Sounds familiar…
Andrea: She’s not even ugly?!
Pat: I posted it on our blog, with my argument that it didn’t work with creepy, bug-eye Sissy Spacek.
Pat: So they might as well try it with a more angelic actress.
Andrea: She was perfect.
Pat: She was AWFUL.
Andrea: I strongly disagree.
Pat: You strongly SMELL BAD.
