Chloe Moretz says ‘Carrie’ remake will ‘mess with your head’

Chloe Moretz says the ‘Carrie’ remake will “mess with your mind”.

The “Kick-Ass” actress compares the forthcoming remake of the 1976 horror film to 2010 thriller “Black Swan” (which starred Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman)and admits the rebooted movie will be mainly based on the Stephen King novel of the same name.

“The script is totally different from the [original]. It’s more like the book. It’s a more ‘Black Swan’ version – it messes with your mind. You’ll see things, and you don’t know if you’ve seen them.”

Chloe stars as the title character, Carrie, a bullied schoolgirl who discovers she has psychic powers and uses them to cause havoc in her hometown, alongside Julianne Moore, who plays her onscreen unstable mother.

She added to Vanity Fair magazine, discussing the first film: “I’m not watching it in preparation for the movie, because we’re doing something totally different, and I’m trying to bring my own take into it. I am changing everything about me–my hair, my look. I’m doing my own take on [the character].”

Portia Doubleday (Youth in Revolt) and Judy Greer (Arrested Development) were also added to the lineup.

“Carrie” is due to be released on March 15, 2013.
