Total Film has debuted this new behind-the-scenes featurette for the upcoming take on Stephen King’s best-selling novel, ‘Carrie.’ The film tells the story of a shy high school student (Chloë Grace Moretz) who is raised by a nightmarish religious fanatic mother (Julianne Moore), and comes to grip with devastating telepathic powers just as she reaches puberty. She eventually uses those gifts for lethal means when fellow classmates use the prom as an excuse to humiliate her before the entire school in a parable about bullying. The likes of Judy Greer, Alex Russell, Megan Hilty, Gabriella Wilde, Ansel Elgort, Portia Doubleday and Ivan Hoey Jr co-star alongside Moretz and Moore. The Kimberly Peirce-directed (Boys Don’t Cry, Stop-Loss) film is set for a October 18th release in the US and a November 29th bow in the UK. The official synopsis for ‘Carrie’ is as follows.
The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Moore) and her daughter Carrie (Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson (Portia Doubleday, Youth in Revolt), but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde, The Three Musketeers), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (newcomer Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc. Brian De Palma’s 1976 film version of CARRIE earned Oscar nominations for stars Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie.
THR bring word that Michael Shannon will star opposite Andrew Garfield in ’99 Homes,’ an indie drama that will be helmed by Ramin Bahrani, the award-winning filmmaker behind ‘Man Push Cart.’ The script, which Bahrani wrote, tackles recent economic headlines and would see Garfield play a man who loses his home to foreclosure. Desperate, he eventually finds work with the real estate broker who took his house and soon is not only evicting homeowners but helping the man embezzle money from the government. While his financial worries disappear, his conscience begins to break him down. Shannon will play the broker.
Ramin Bahrani has shown a propensity for tackling the harder edges of life. ’Man Push Cart,’ about a former Pakistani rock star turned Manhattan street vendor, won several international awards and was nominated for three Indie Spirits. His follow up, ‘Chop Shop,’ focused on a street orphan working in an auto-body repair shop. Michel Shannon co-starred as Zod in this summer’s Superman movie, ‘Man of Steel,’ and won praise for his performance in ‘The Iceman.’ He is wrapping up stage work at Chicago’s Red Orchid Theatre where is performing in ‘Sympatico’ and stars in season four of HBO’s acclaimed drama ‘Boardwalk Empire.’
