It seems that Chloë Grace Moretz is among the leading contenders to take the lead role in the Carrie remake says Vulture. 24-year-old actress Haley Bennett is at the front of the line as well. The pair seemingly rose a few notches after Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) recently turned down the part.
Based on author Stephen King's book--the 1976 version directed by Brian De Palma is a horror classic about a timid and tortured girl (Sissy Spacek) who uses her telekinetic powers to punish her tormentors
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, a playwright who was brought in to rework the troubled Broadway production Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark, is writing the new script which is said to be both more faithful and more realistic than the previous 1976 version.
Both Moretz and Bennett would be great in the role with Chloe a bit more age appropriate at 15
Dakota Fanning, Emily Browning (Sucker Punch), Bella Heathcote (In Time) and Lily Collins (The Blind Side) have all auditioned for the role in the past for director Kimberly Peirce ("Boys Don't Cry")
Peirce is looking for a high-profile actress to play Carrie’s mother and is talking to Jodie Foster and Julianne Moore, played in the original De Palma film by Oscar nominee Piper Laurie.
This role is an easier choice Hands down hoping Foster takes it!
