Earlier this week, we learned new details about the latest adaptation of Stephen King's Carrie. Now, Sissy Spacek, who played the title role in Brian De Palma's 1976 film, is throwing in her two cents. So what does the original Carrie think about the new movie?
In an interview with ComingSoon, Spacek seemed excited about the film and everyone involved, especially Kimberly Peirce. "They hired a really wonderful director, very talented," she said. "It'll be interesting."
A lot of people feel that the new Carrie is unnecessary. Since De Palma's version is considered a classic, Peirce's film has a lot to live up to. But Spacek thinks it's possible for both to coexist.
"Our film, it is what it is what it is, and it stood the test of time, but I think that's great, it's like an homage not only to the book but to the film, not only to Stephen King but to Brian De Palma. It's been made many times. There have been several television movies, Carrie 2, two musicals! I remember thinking the first time there was a musical on Broadway, 'Oh my Gosh! The people who ordinarily go to the theaters, that's not really the audience."
The Oscar-winning actress is definitely interested in how the new Carrie turns out. She may be one of the first people in line to see it. Could you imagine Spacek and Moretz standing side by side at the film's premiere? Make it so!
