Who Are the Contenders for Carrie?

Look, as much as I love the Sissy Spacek-starring, Brian DePalma-directed Carrie, this remake that is in development at Screen Gems is taking hold of my curiosity.

Admittedly, I had no interest when it was first announced.  After all, we had already seen a sequel get made.  Then there was a made-for-television adaptation starring May‘s Angela Bettis.  In January, Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry) was attached to helm the new Carrie, and that seems like a good fit in my book.

Now, it’s being reported that two actresses are in the running for Carrie White herself.

Vulture states Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass) and Haley Bennett (The Hole) are the top contenders.  There’s close to a ten-year age difference between the two actresses.  Which one do you think would make the best fit?

As for Carrie’s crazy mom, apparently there are talks of Jodie Foster (wowza) and Julianne Moore.

Again, strong, interesting choices.  And both actresses played Clarice Starling.  Weird.
