Director Kimberly Pierce’s impending remake/adaptation of CARRIE, Stephen King’s bestselling novel and Brian De Palma’s immortal 1976 filmed version, was previewed in a panel at this weekend’s past New York Comic Con. But prior to this, director De Palma talked with Fango about his own personal feelings about the project:
“I know Kimberly Peirce, I’ve known her for twelve years,” De Palma told FANGORIA in Toronto.
“I met her in Paris when she was on a press junket for BOYS DON’T CRY. We spent some time in New York together, we used to go to the theatre together. She’s a bright, talented person. I tried to encourage her to make a movie very quickly after the success of BOYS and it took her years to find right material…but anyway, she contacted me when she decided to do CARRIE. We discussed the right way to approach it, who she was going to cast and we had a few discussions about it and basically I gave her my blessing. She’s a very talented girl and I’m really excited to see what she does. It will be more like the book, I think, which is Sue Snell’s testimony which puts Carrie in kind of brackets…”
