Sony dates ‘Carrie’ remake for March 2013

Chloe Moretz stars in MGM's remake of Stephen King tale

Sony has set a March 15, 2013, opening for “Carrie,” MGM’s remake of Stephen King’s horror tale.

Chloe Moretz will star in the title role that made Sissy Spacek famous in 1976. Directed by Kimberly Peirce (“Boys Don’t Cry”) and scripted by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, story centers on a shy high-school student who uses her newly discovered telekinetic powers to exact revenge on her classmates.

MGM’s planning to start shooting the reboot this summer. “Carrie” will open against Relativity’s comedy “21 and Over,” starring Justin Chon, Miles Teller and Sarah Wright.

MGM, which emerged from a pre-packaged bankruptcy in late 2010, has opted to partner with other distributors for its films. It tapped Sony last fall to distribute “Skyfall” and the following James Bond film.
