I know we’ve got some Chloe Moretz stans lurking around here, so I’m sure you’ll be glad to see her pop up on EB… and to learn that I’m not going to slate her for being too big for her britches (because I was probably being a bit cranky that day). I’m just here to talk about the Carrie remake, which actually looks pretty good (and will be, guaranteed, since Julianne Moore is in it). You see, Chloe feels like it’s one of the most important roles in her career – not just because it’s a lead role in a major blockbuster, but because she got to be more vulnerable than ever before with this one and put her own spin on the character.
From Flicks and Bits:
“The role of Carrie is an incredibly emotional role. It’s probably the most vulnerable I’ve ever been as an actor, so in some ways it’s kind of terrifying for people to see it, but at the same time it’s very exciting and kind of an awakening for me because it’s something I’ve never done before.”
“We were able to put our own spin on [the character], just because we wanted it to be original. And I didn’t want to watch the movie or anything. So what we really did was, we had the book there on set every day, and we compared a page in the script to a page in the book and really, that was our big thing.”
“Hopefully people will really like this Carrie and they’ll really be interested in her look. It’s so different than the first one, I think. I think that she is such a different style of Carrie. I think also… that we have the modern facilities to be able to… keep the same consistent blood throughout the entire movie until she washes it off.
“Keep the exact same blood spatters and just kind of keep it so linear. Unlike with the first movie, they didn’t have the ability. You see the blood drop and then cut. It’s like a different splatter and everything. But, you know, it’s that time period. In this time period, you sort of have people looking for, ‘Oh, the blood went from her left cheek to her right cheek. Oh my God’. So we had to make it so strategic that I hope people really like that.”
Cool, sounds good. I’m glad they went in a different direction and weren’t trying to do a carbon copy remake of the original, because then I think it would’ve tanked. However, this could potentially be pretty awesome.
Will you see the new Carrie or have you already?
