Screen Gems has their eye on a possibly very appropriate director for its new iteration of CARRIE.
Deadline reports that MGM and Screen Gems are looking to have BOYS DON'T CRY director Kimberly Peirce take on the tale of the telekinetic teen and her many tormentors.
Having already directed an acclaimed and harrowing drama based around the anguish of an outcast, Peirce feels like a great choice, if a new take on Stephen King's novel must, in fact, happen. Oddly, the script from SPIDER MAN: TURN OFF THE DARK writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is said to be "more grounded" than De Palma's classic film and hue closer to the book, although I'm not sure why you'd need to ground a story specifically heightened by things like supernatural ability to work through the issues surrounding a young woman's coming-of-age. And if I remember correctly (it's been awhile), the novel goes even bigger at times.
