Brian De Palma’s adaptation of Steven King’s Carrie is one of the all time greats. That’s not to say that Kimberly Peirce can’t also do a wonderful and significantly different job and I like the casting of Chloe Moretz who shows real potential to transcend her little girl roots. At the same time, I don’t have a lot of faith in the current state of cinema that MGM even WANTS an interesting movie. How much do you want to bet this one comes in as PG-13? I know that doesn’t mean much to a lot of people, but to me it’s a sign the studio is more concerned with mass audience potential than any kind of fidelity to the original material.
