It is said that Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa will stick much closer to Stephen King's novel than the original movie did. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has worked with Stephen King in the past, penning a graphic novel based on Stephen King's book The Stand.
Oddly enough, Carrie wasn't one of the projects listed when MGM announced a slew of remake projects, which include RoboCop, Poltergeist, Mr. Mom, and others.
The original Carrie starred Sissy Spacek as the title character, an ostracized young girl who uses her special gifts to get even with her tormentors.
No production schedule was released for the Carrie remake.
