Chloe Grace Moretz determined to play Carrie

Jul 19 2013, 1:54am CDT | by

Chloe Grace Moretz knew she had to star in 'Carrie'.

The actress takes on the iconic titular role in the upcoming remake of Brian De Palma's classic 1976 horror film, and says she couldn't imagine anyone else in the role after she read the script.

She explained: ''I went in for a meeting with MGM. They were like, 'Oh we have a couple of projects we'd like you to think about', and I was like, 'Oh cool.' They said, 'One's Carrie', and I was like, 'Oh God, what does that entail? What type remake is it gonna be? Is it gonna be a real, beautiful movie or something slasher-y and tentpole-y?'

''They sent over the script and when I read the script, I just inhaled it. You know when you read a script within three hours, you know that it's a movie that you have to do. Immediately I read the character of Carrie and I couldn't imagine anyone else doing this role. I couldn't imagine going, 'Yeah, here's the script, you go take the role.' I felt the need to go and fight for this role to the death, and that's exactly what I did.''

The 16-year-old star admits director Kim Pierce was initially unsure about casting her in the role, but this only fuelled her even more to land the part.

Moretz added to Collider.com: ''As an actor you always want to be challenged and you always want to have someone tell you, you can't do something, because I always want to be like, 'I can do it and I'll show you I can and I'll do it better than anyone can.' ''

'Carrie', which also stars Julianne Moore, is in cinemas later this year.

Chloe Moretz Says Piracy Means 'Kick-Ass 3' Probably Won't Happen

Aug 27 2014 12:02pm CDT | Source: First Showing

Gifted young actress Chloe Grace Moretz has been making the publicity rounds for her latest tearjerking drama If I Stay, and that means she's been fielding questions about projects other than the current one she's promoting. And considering most of the general population knows he as the foul-mouthed, ass-kicking Hit-Girl from Kick-Ass and last year's underwhelming sequel, she was inevitably asked ab ...

If I Stay Review: Chloe Grace Moretz Grows Up

Aug 22 2014 8:45am CDT | Source: movie fanatic

Author Gayle Forman certainly chose wisely to have director R.J. Cutler helm the film adaptation of her novel If I Stay. And when it was first bought by Hollywood, Forman has said that she wished Chloe Grace Moretz was older because she would be perfect to play Mia. Well, the stars aligned. It took a couple of years to get the film off the ground and now, the young star is old enough. Moretz is a revelation as Mia and manages to score her first adult-ish ro ...
