(CelebNMusic247-News) Director Kimberly Peirce Talks Carrie Remake

When you think of horror classics one girl always comes to mind and that’s Carrie, the ground breaking horror film that starred Sissy SpacekPiper Laurie Amy Irving and John Travolta.

Kimberly Peirce explains how she chose to revisit the Stephen King novel already made filmically famous by Brian De Palma.

Here is what she had to say on the Carrie remake:

“I really, deeply, honestly, 100 per cent fell so in love with King’s writing and with his characters. I love that it’s such a richly psychological book. It’s so dense.”

On bring her own unique approach to the material:

“I took a page out of the novel to really make it a mother/daughter story. Carrie is your protagonist but the mother/daughter story is the heart and soul.”

Peirce added:

“It also seems as if the perspective of a female director could be key for Carrie.”

“I also know how girls act and get along with each other. I know how women use power too.”

The new Carrie stars  Chloë Grace Moretz [Kick-Ass, Dark Shadows, Let Me In] Julianne Moore and Judy Greer.

Carrie opens on 5 April 2013.
