Julianne Moore will play Carrie's fanatically religious mother Margaret White. Portia Doubleday (Youth In Revolt) has also been cast as the girl who started it all Chris Hargensen. Gabriella Wilde has also been chosen to play the role of Sue Snell.
About the new film, Chloë Moretz says, "… We’re kind of going off the book. It’s darker and much more psychological. More ‘Black Swan.’ You’re really looking into her mind and it really looks into the relationship of Margaret and Carrie. It’s set in modern time, so it’s a lot different… It’s something that’s very different from me. It’s an out of body thing. I’m becoming a totally different person for it. I’m letting go of all of my self-esteem issues and just kind of going into it. You have to."
