With a release date slated last week, the wheels are now firmly in motion on the Kimberly Peirce's "Carrie" remake starring Chloe Moretz. With the lead actress now locked in, the task is now on hand to find someone to play the poor girl's deranged mother, and a name that has already been bandied about seems to be taking a more firm shape.

Julianne Moore Carrie

Update: Deadline reports Julianne Moore is now locked and Gabrielle Wilde ("The Three Musketeers") has also joined in the role of Sue Snell.

Update 04/27/12: Deadline reports that things have progressed and MGM has made a formal offer for Julianne Moore to take the role of Margaret.

Originally published 04/16/12: With a release date slated last week, the wheels are now firmly in motion on the Kimberly Peirce's "Carrie" remake starring Chloe Moretz. With the lead actress now locked in, the task is now on hand to find someone to play the poor girl's deranged mother, and a name that has already been bandied about seems to be taking a more firm shape.

Bloody Disgusting reported that Columbia Pictures is "speaking closely" with Julianne Moore to take on the role of Margaret White, the abusive, fundamentalist Mom of Carrie. Moore's name is one that has been knocking around since last month (Jodie Foster was also mentioned) but it seems things are perhaps getting a bit more formal. There is no doubt Moore could pull this off -- she can pretty much do anything -- and it would give her the rare opportunity to do horror, a genre she hasn't dabbled in all that often (there was "Shelter" but the less said about that the better). Not only that, but with Peirce at the helm, it's the kind of quality director that Moore generally looks toward.

So we'll see how this pans out, but Moretz and Moore? Sounds good to us. "Carrie" opens on March 15, 2013.
