Director of ‘Carrie’ Remake So Excited She Makes Her Own Poster

Director Kimberly Peirce is so thrilled to be remaking ‘Carrie,’ and so excited that she’s landed Chloe Grace Moretz for the title role, that she’s gone ahead and made her own poster for the movie before shooting a foot of film.

As reported last week, Peirce and MGM offered the role to Moretz after auditioning a number of young actresses over a two-week span. Now that Moretz is apparently a done deal for the part, Peirce apparently just got so overwhelmed with enthusiasm about landing her (Moretz is reportedly who she wanted all along) that she’s designed her own poster for the movie and put it up at her Facebook page.

It’s actually pretty cool and simple — just a large closeup of Moretz’s face, with a tear coming out of her right eye and blood (presumably from the bucket of pig’s blood dropped on her at the senior prom) trickling down the left side of her head. A simple tag reads, “Know her name. Beware her power.”

‘Carrie,’ of course, was Stephen King’s first published novel back in 1974 and was made into a still-chilling and quite excellent film by Brian De Palma in 1976. A 2002 TV miniseries starring genre fave Angela Bettis followed, along with two failed attempts to stage the tale as a Broadway musical.

Our biggest question is this: sure, Moretz has been playing some pretty dark roles in movies like ‘Kick-Ass’ and ‘Let Me In,’ but can she play a painfully reclusive and, frankly, homely-looking wallflower? While striking, Peirce’s poster also makes Moretz look quite pretty. We’ll just have to wait for the first set photos when ‘Carrie’ begins shooting later this year.
