Kimberly Peirce recently spoke about bringing CARRIE'S themes into the modern, very relevant climate, as well as how her young star is preparing for the role.
The BOYS DON'T CRY director took to her Facebook (where she recently shared and nodded approval towards the above fan art), to comment on how the new iteration of the Stephen King novel will play into the current hot topic of bullying.
Peirce writes, "I am also modernizing the story as one has to in order to bring any great piece of work written in one era into the next and especially given how very relevant this material is right now."
She adds, "Chloe is going deep into character to get this right....sewing her own dresses, spending time in her closet....and so much more....Thanks for all the great wishes. We are on it! And privileged to be working with such great source material."
I realize that the headline is a bit facetious, but I am rooting for this. CARRIE is a great story, and Peirce could very well have a strong grasp on how to get this right, especially in the aforementioned "moment" that anti-bullying is having.
CARRIE is scheduled to be out March 15, 2013.
