Julianne Moore has now confirmed her role in the Kimberly Peirce directed remake of classic Stephen King horror tale Carrie. She’ll be playing Carrie’s mother – a domineering religious fanatic who has done her best to shelter her daughter from the evils of the world. But when Carrie gets her first period, she sees it as a manifestation of sin, and locks her in a cupboard while she begs for forgiveness.
Gabriella Wilde has also signed on for the role of Sue Snell, the leader of Carrie’s teenage tormentors. She’s in for a nasty surprise when Carrie reveals that they probably should have picked on a different girl.
Shooting begins in June with Chloe Moretz (last seen in Dark Shadows) in the title role. Moore meanwhile has two films in post-production – What Maisie Knew and The English Teacher and has just finished filming fantasy drama The Seventh Son. Wilde was last seen in *hawk spit* The Three Musketeers and is about to start work on Squatters.
