'Carrie,' based on the novel by Stephen King, was adapted by Brian DePalma in 1976 and remade for TV in 2002, starring Angela Bettis. It was also a Broadway musical. Twice. And it's going to be a horror movie again. Now it looks like MGM has found their lead for that 'Carrie' remake.

Moretz has gained notoriety for her edgier film choices, with roles in 'Kick-Ass,' 'Let Me In' (the remake of the Swedish horror film), and a recurring guest role on '30 Rock' as Jack Donaghy's arch-nemesis.

The plot follows teenager Carrie White, a meek girl who lives under the tyranny of her God-fearing mother and the relentless taunting from her peers at school -- that is, until she discovers she has telekinesis and goes bonkers.

The bucket of pig's blood has yet to be cast, but we're keeping our fingers crossed for Andy Serkis.
