Chloe Moretz speaks about her "Carrie" remake Role

Even though filming doesn't start in a couple months, Actress Chloe Moretz briefly spoke about the upcoming horror remake and her approach as the titled character.
The lowdown goes as follows: Carrie White (Moretz), is a shy high school student who is raised by a nightmarish religious fanatic mother (Julianne Moore), and comes to grip with devastating telepathic powers just as she reaches puberty. She eventually uses those gifts for lethal means when fellow classmates use the prom as an excuse to humiliate her before the entire school in a parable about bullying.

The actress revealed: “I am changing everything about me: my hair, my look. I’m doing my own take on "Carrie". The script is totally different from the original film. It’s more like the book. It’s a more Black Swan version, it messes with your mind. You’ll see things, and you don’t know if you’ve seen them.” Moretz also spoke on Julianne Moore, who plays Carrie’s terrifying mother. “I don’t know if we are supposed to bond (because of our characters’ relationship), but I feel like we both will because we’re both cool,” Moretz joked. “I’ll be like, ‘Hey, want to go to Wonderland?’ It’s this park like Six Flags. They have this crazy thing that goes like 200 miles per hour, and there is, like, an 80-degree drop from 360 feet in the air. It’s epic. I can scream my lungs out, but I can’t do speeches.”

Its possible Chloe could be going for a goth look, but considering the ways in which high school has changed since 1976, Chloe could embody any number of cliques and still be considered an outcast. She could be “artsy” or even a seemingly dumb popular girl and still get the pig’s blood dumped on her at prom.

‘Carrie’ was first adapted by Brian DePalma in 1976, with Sissy Spacek playing Carrie and Piper Laurie playing her mother and both earned Oscar nominations for their performances. The remake is scheduled to arrive in US theaters on  March 13th, 2013.
