The Playlist By Simon Dang | The Playlist August 23, 2012 at 8:38AM

It would seem that, for whatever reason, folks are more curious than wary about Kimberly Peirce's remake of Brian De Palma's classic adaptation of Stephen King's "Carrie." Whatever the outcome may be, we're guessing that curiosity will continue to win out with the arrival of the impressive first official look at Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore, who'll be starring as timid high-schooler Carrie White and her fundamentalist mother Margaret respectively -- roles portrayed in De Palma's originally by Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie.

It would seem that, for whatever reason, folks are more curious than wary about Kimberly Peirce's remake of Brian De Palma's classic adaptation of Stephen King's "Carrie." Whatever the outcome may be, we're guessing that curiosity will continue to win out with the arrival of the impressive first official look at Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore, who'll be starring as timid high-schooler Carrie White and her fundamentalist mother Margaret respectively -- roles portrayed in De Palma's originally by Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie.

Moretz already has strong horror remake genes, having starred in Matt Reeves' "Let Me In," a re-do of Tomas Alfredsson's Swedish film "Let The Right One In," and described Peirce's new take on King's tale as "more like the book. It’s a more 'Black Swan' version—it messes with your mind. You’ll see things, and you don’t know if you’ve seen them.” A more psychological depiction of the story? So far, so good.

"Carrie" centers on the titular high schooler who unleashes her telekinetic powers after being pushed too far by her fundamentalist mother and fellow school mates at prom. Judy Greer co-stars as empathetic teacher Miss Collins with Portia Doubleday playing Chris Hargensen, Alex Russell as Billy Nolan and Gabriella Wilde as Sue Snell.  The film lands on March 13, 2013.
