Director Kimberly Peirce‘s remake of Stephen King‘s Carrie has been pushed back from a March 15th 2013 release date to October 2013. No word on the decision behind this move. No announced reshoots or additional production requirements have been rumored. Most likely this is a marketing move to place the movie during the Halloween season to capitalize on that additional seasonal movie goer market. Chloë Grace Moretz stars as Carrie and for those not familiar with the story the synopsis is below.
“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.”
