Carrie Remake Featuring Found Footage?

Oh please, tell me it’s not true.  I’m so over this found footage aspect of horror.  And don’t get me started on the remake aspect of it.  In any case, this is the gossip that caught my attention.  Read on for the details.

MGM top dog Roger Birnbaum was on hand to speak to the film students at the University of Denver and he dropped two interesting pieces of information about a pair of projects in the works at the studio. Movies.com gathered up the intelligence from Reddit – sooooo take with a grain of salt.

Birnbaum let slip that the upcoming Carrie remake, directed by Kimberly Peirce, will incorporate elements of “found footage.” That’s pretty easy to digest.

Over the next year, we’re going to be seeing a lot of films that “inject” a bit of a found footage narrative without wholly embracing the storytelling technique (Chernobyl Diaries, for instance). The original Stephen King novel also incorporated a recount of Carrie’s antics, which – if I recall – the made-for-TV film starring Angelis Bettis embraced. So, could you say that the new Carrie is riding a fad? Not really.

On a side-note regarding the film, Deadline says MGM has officially offered the role of Carrie’s mom to Julianne Moore. Both Moore and Jodie Foster have always been frontrunners.
