"I’m Becoming A Totally Different Person" Chloë Grace Moretz Discusses Becoming The New 'CARRIE'!

With production of the new big screen adaption of Stephen King's Carrie set to commence in a month lead actress Chloë Grace Moretz [Kick-Ass] has been discussing her upcoming role as the titular Carrie in Kimberly Peirce's [Boys Don’t Cry] big screen remake. The adaption this time around will feature a 'found-footage' narrative approach. Carrie is slated for release on March 15th 2013. Hit the jump for the details.

Chloe Moretz: "...It's going to be very well done. I don't want to jinx it, but [Peirce] is a genius, genius, genius director. I would never do it with someone that I don't trust. I trust her more than a lot of the directors I've worked with. She's the right woman for the job."

On comparison to the original 1974 Brian De Palma film. As we know this new version will follow King's book more closely.

Chloe Moretz: "I'm actually not looking at the original, even though De Palma's movie was one of the best movies ever made. It's completely iconic and I'm proud to be able to be doing a retooling of it. 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."

How do you approach a character like this? 

Chloe Moretz: "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."

Her thoughts on the fan-made poster [created by Pierre-Luc Boucher].

Chloe Moretz: "That was a cool poster! Kim sent that to me. She said, 'Oh my god, you've got to look at this. It's really, really, really cool!' We both felt so pumped. Now we're chomping at the bit to get in there."
