"THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT THE MOVIE... WE'RE TAKING A LOT OF HIS NOTES," BUT REALLY GOING BACK TO THE BOOK
In an MTV Movies Blog video posted today, Chloe Moretz tells Josh Horowitz that the Carrie remake, being directed by Kimberly Peirce, is getting input from Brian De Palma himself. Asked if she has seen De Palma's version, Moretz replied, "Yeah, I saw the De Palma movie actually during... I was making Let Me In at the time. And that's when I first saw it. No, I mean, De Palma's movie is absolutely amazing, and we're definitely taking... you know, Kim is actually really good friends with De Palma, and, you know, they're talking about the movie and everything, and they're good friends. So we're taking a lot of his notes and stuff, but what we're really doing is we're taking the book, and we're breaking the book down, and we're putting a lot of elements from the book into our story. So it's... it's more of like a Black Swan version of it. So you really see the mythology in the character, and you really see everything going on with Carrie, and it's darker."
