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.

Producer Todd Black Talks Tailoring the Role for Denzel Washington, Long Dialogue Scenes, Franchise Potential, and More on the Set of THE EQUALIZER

Sep 3 2014 2:11pm CDT | Source: Collider

Last August, when director Antoine Fuqua was filming The Equalizer outside of Boston, I got to visit the set along with a few other reporters.  Adapted from the 1980s TV series of the same name, the pic reteams Denzel Washington with his Training Day director as he plays a former black ops commando who comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl (Chloe Grace Moretz).  Soon thereafter, things go south and he finds himself squaring off against violent R ...

‘The Equalizer’ Trailer and Poster: Don’t Mess With Denzel

Sep 3 2014 9:30am CDT | Source: slash film

You’d think people would know better by now than to mess with Denzel Washington, but then again his movies wouldn’t make any sense if they did. So in the latest The Equalizer trailer he finds himself targeted by Russian mobsters, who quickly realize he’s much more than the mild-mannered retail worker he pretends to be. What he is exactly isn’t quite clear, but despite his easy jokes about being a former Pip (as in Gladys Knight & the) it’s obvious he has a dark, da ...
