Currently one of the hottest leading ladies in Hollywood following her roles in Kick Ass, Let Me In and Dark Shadows, Chloe Moretz told Comingsoon.net┬áthat she’s “chomping at the bit” to get cracking on indie director Kimberly Pierce’s Carrie remake, which is entering production 1 June 2012 for a 15 March 2013 release.

“I’m actually not looking at the original,” revealed Moretz, “even though [director Brian] 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 [Stephen King’s] 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.”
