Chloe has been offered the title role in MGM’s remake of Brian DePalma’s classic horror film, Carrie. Based on the best-selling Stephen King novel, the film focuses on a teenage outcast who discovers she has telekinetic powers, which she uses to exact revenge on her tormentors.
Sissy Spacek’s performance in the 1976 film earned her a Best Actress nomination at the Oscars the following year.
Kimberly Peirce, who garnered critical acclaim for her 1999 film Boys Don’t Cry, will be directing the remake. The script was written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
Advocate reports that Jodie Foster and Julianne Moore are among the actresses being considered for the role of Carrie’s abusive mother, Margaret, played by Piper Laurie in the 1976 film.
Nine character posters have been released to promote Dark Shadows, one of which features Chloe as Carolyn Stoddard.
Dark Shadows hits theaters on May 11, 2012.
