Chloe Moretz, the young actress who has made a name for herself in showbiz by portraying unconventional characters such as “Hit-Girl” in “Kick-Ass” and a lonely, brutal vampire in “Let Me In”, is now about to wow audiences with her portrayal of Carrie White.
The remake of Brian De Palma’s visionary adaptation of Stephen King’s book “Carrie” comes at a time when bullying is a huge and frightening epidemic. With the explosion of social media and just about every teen spending hours on sites like Facebook and Twitter–where they are constantly exposed to the cruelty of internet trolls and their own peers–bullying has made headlines over the past couple of years, leading to teen suicides and altercations. Now, director Kimberly Peirce says she wants to incorporate those things into the retelling, modernizing the story a bit and making it easier for young people to relate to.
Check out the teaser trailer below and see “Carrie” when it debuts in March.
