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.

If I Stay Trailer: Welcome Back, All of the Emotions

Jul 23 2014 8:26am CDT | Source: movie pilot

The traumatic romance genre is a fickle thing. Back in the old days, practically every other movie featured a tragically doomed romance. From the old school melodramas of Douglas Sirk, through 1970's Love Story, and all the way up to 1982's Sophie's Choice, the genre was a consistent guarantee of box office success.Then things went a little more...80's. Funny came back, hard. Action got serious, and took over the box office.But, as is so often the way, sadness was ...

Keira Knightley hangs with the kids todayFor some people, the term “mid-life” crisis conjures visions of blokes with bad comb-overs ditching long-suffering wives for pneumatic new models and buying sports cars.

‘Laggies’ Trailer: Keira Knightley Has a Quarterlife Crisis

Jul 16 2014 1:00pm CDT | Source: slash film

Dramas about overeducated, underemployed 20somethings in the throes of a quarterlife crisis are a dime a dozen on the indie film circuit. But Laggies seems worth a look anyway, if only because of the names attached. Lynn Shelton (Your Sister’s Sister) directed the coming-of-age tale, which follows an aimless 28-year-old (Keira Knightley). When her anxieties about impending adulthood come to a head, she runs off to move in with a 16-year-old girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) and her single dad (Sa ...
