Look at This Awesome Fan-Made Poster for 'Carrie' with Chloe Moretz
Just one day after she was said to be a fronturnner for the role, Let Me In and Kick-Ass star Chloe Moretz officially entered talks to play the titular role in Carrie, a new adaptation of Stephen King's classic horror tale. There's no better time for the story to take place, what with all the talks about bullying infecting our schools, especially with The Weinstein Company's crusade to have their film doc Bully by as many young kids as possible despite getting an R-rating from the MPAA. Well, in no time at all, a fan made a cool poster, and the remake's director, Kimberly Peirce, gave her seal of approval to the simple but effective work.
Not only does the poster highlight one of the most memorable scenes from the original film, but it uses the blood to great effect as it looks like Carrie is also crying from being pushed to far by her high school peers. And check out that awesome tagline "Know her name. Beware her power." It's going to be hard to top this for a teaser poster, especially if the studio goes the standard glossy Photoshop route. This project is just getting off the ground, but we're already interested to see how it turns out. It will be hard to live up to Brian DePalma's original, but having a woman in the driver's seat this time should make for an interesting take.

She was terrible in Hugo.

Good news is she doesn't have to act to play Carrie, just be creepy as all hell and then go crazy and kill everyone.

She was good in Hugo but there wasn't much required of her.

She's a great actress, as witnessed in '30 Rock,' and 'Let Me In.'

She is a great actress, but I agree with Ryderup: she was terrible, terrible in Hugo.

She wasn't asked to do much in Hugo. Watch her in Let Me In, Kick Ass, or 500 Days of Summer if you want to see her act.

Well, she should have done less of whatever she was asked to do.

Should the poster say Beware of her power?

Love Chloe Moretz, and originally I was like "Yo the original Carrie was so awesome a remake will only make everything terrible and awful and ruin my life." But now I'm thinking they could really tap into all this crazy bullying stuff that goes on in schools today and make something just as powerful as the original, if not more so. So I'm cautious, but I say go for it. Carrie deserves to be introduced to this generation.

Carrie needs to be rated PG13 cause it will help a lot of kids who are bullied in school!!!

How will it help kids who are bullied? Inspire them to stare into a mirror until they develop telekinesis/pyrokinesis (forgot which) then go on a murderous rampage?

This poster is awesome! Has a 70's feel to it also, I'm impressed! This should be the theatrical poster.

Chloe Grace Moretz really impresses me. She is well grounded and has immense talent! Although not all of her roles have been worthy of her ability, Her performance (and that of the male lead) in "Let Me In" was one of the best dramatic performances I have seen in a very long time! It cemented her ability in the horror genre for me, and as a dramatic actor as well, forever. I am certain she is capable of a brilliant performance in a remake of the classic "Carrie", and am thrilled it is moving forward with her in the title role! I can think of no one better suited to play the part!

Isn't she too pretty for this? I mean everyone that has ever played Carrie (don't even bring up the one with the vine tattoos or whatever) has been a uniquely acquired beauty and this chick is just gorgeous. Wonder what her make under will look like, Love her as an actress though...didn't see hugo-seems that if I wanna keep liking her I shouldn't
