Chloë Grace Moretz seems attracted to gothic, supernatural roles and she's following up this year's Dark Shadows by heading into a remake of Brian DePalma's adaptation of Stephen King's Carrie, which she described to Coming Soon as a modern, more psychological take on the novel:
Moretz is one of those actresses who is fantastic in everything, but this seems a bad fit to me. Carrie is supposed to be an outcast, socially outdated and weird looking. Sissy Spacek was perfect casting for the character's otherworldliness, whereas Moretz has taken several modelling gigs. The novel is a perversely nasty little tome (not a criticism) and no matter how much Moretz gets 'uglied up', it's difficult to imagine her easily fitting into the part. We'll have to wait until March 15th to find out.
