Report, Screen Gems And MGM Horror Flick Will Hit Theaters 37 Years After Original ‘Carrie’ Debuted, Highlight Hollywood News
Today fans of the cult classic “Carrie” and moviegoers dying to see the new film will have to wait another 10 months before seeing Screen Gems’ and MGM’s Carrie remake. The horror pic, starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore, is being pushed back from March 15 to Oct. 18 to take advantage of Halloween, according to studio insiders. It opens one week before the seasonal staple Paranormal Activity 5.
Brian De Palma’s original Carrie, marking Sissy Spacek’s breakout role, opened on Nov. 3, 1976, roughly the same corridor.
Moretz also will have more time to do publicity, since her Kick-Ass 2 already will have opened in theaters. The sequel debuts June 28. Sony also announced several other calendar changes Thursday. TriStar thriller The Call, starring Halle Berry and Abigail Breslin, will take the March 15 spot, while No Good Deed, also a thriller, is being pushed from Oct. 18 to Jan. 17, 2014. No Good Deed, from Screen Gems, stars Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson.
