The remake of Brian De Palma's 1976 horror classic is coming to the screen next year with Chloe Moretz taking over for Sissy Spacek in the title role of a troubled (to say the least) girl and Julianne Moore replacing Piper Laurie as a less-than-ideal mother. A new teaser offers a glimpse of Moretz near the end.
The original "Carrie," based on the Steven King novel, has been enshrined in the horror canon ever since its release, making it a tough one to beat. The director of the new version is Kimberly Peirce, who seems to be reaching outside her comfort zone ("Boys Don't Cry," "Stop-Loss"), and the writer is Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, a comic-book author.
"Carrie" is due for release March 15.
