No, not the Broadway flop, which is being reworked. The Stephen King novel, and Lindsay Lohan wants the part……………………….Jessica Christ, Brian DePalma did a great job of the original, the script actually stuck quite closely to the book, and this is just NOT NEEDED.
And that is exactly what Stephen King thinks. Found this after I wrote the above………..
“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.”
If Hollywood is going to insist on raping my youth, I am going to start taking roofies.
And who can be better than Piper Laurie?
Love that scene.
