Stephen King Talks About Carrie Remake

Stephen King Carrie Remake

So, how does the source of the story itself feel about the Carrie remake?

Well it turns out that Stephen King rather liked the Brian De Palma version, saying that it was even better than his own! Which means that he isn't too keen on a remake, unless…:

“I’ve heard rumblings about a Carrie remake, as I have about The Stand and It. Who knows if it will happen? The real question is why, when the original was so good? I mean, not Casablanca, or anything, but a really good horror-suspense film, much better than the book. Piper Laurie really got her teeth into the bad-mom thing. Although Lindsay Lohan as Carrie White… hmmm. It would certainly be fun to cast. I guess I could get behind it if they turned the project over to one of the Davids: Lynch or Cronenberg.”

A little jab at the Linds, there, but that's okay! Why? Because he brings up two AMAZING project leads who would be perfect for the remake.

Really. Inspired suggestions.

We couldn't think of anyone better than either David Lynch or David Cronenberg (our vote goes to Cronenberg for his use of organics in his horror)!

Seriously, if he has any pull, he needs to make that happen! And who knows, maybe the trade off would be that they DO cast Lindsay — David C. could pull an incredible performance out of her, guaranteed!

What do U think about the remake and these ideas? Did U love the original??

    I hope he doesn't allow this. It can't be done any better than the original, so what's the point? Oh right, more money with minimal creative effort. I'm sure if they do, they will cast some new tween to crap all over the role and make a quick buck off of desecrating another classic (Karate Kid remake).

    LiLo can't play a teenager. She looks like she's 40. Why remake the movie? The original was an excellent adaptation.

    you cant blame him 'carrie ' is an amazing classic of course hes not going to want lilo in there . except to get pigs blood on her head maybe . but u would want a decent actress to play a role like that .

    Is HollyWeird running out of ideas that they need to do crappy remakes of movies that should be untouched, like Carrie? The original was amazing , why is there a need to do a remake? How stupid!!!

    I get why everyone says that a Carrie remake isn't the best idea, the original was awesome! But I think I'd like to see what they would do with the remake…it's been over 30 years since the original, it'd be cool to see a modern take on it.

    Actually, I'm a HUGE King fan and have read every single one of his books, most of them multiple times. Therefore, I usually don't like most of his movies because they usually don't live up to his amazing literary works. I did however enjoy the original Carrie (which was the first one of his books I read as a teen.) I do have to admit that I am intrigued by his idea of casting Lindsay though. Kind of a fun idea!

    um…carrie was remade back in like 2000… and no i am not talking about the b-movie sequel the rage carrie 2, i'm surprised its getting another reboot he's right they should just leave it knowing hollywood directors will take away the suspense aspect of the film which builds up threw the movie and slap it into a big sex fest, gore fest, which carrie wasn't.
