Yeah, A Remake Of CARRIE Sounds About Right

City of Films

Somebody somewhere thought it would be a good idea to try another big screen telling of Stephen King’s Carrie (his first published novel).  That somebody I’d like to predict will be wrong.  MGM and Screen Gems announced last year that they hired playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa to write a new script for Carrie, he’s the guy
