Carrie may once again be headed to your screen soon!
Stephen King might have another television adaptation coming. Deadline reports a limited series remake of Carrie is currently in development. However, it’s in a very early stage and apparently there isn’t even a writer attached to the project.
The story of Carrie has most recently been adapted into a feature film starring Chloe Grace Moretz in the titular role. It had an impressive supporting cast which included Julianne Moore, Ansel Elgort, and Gabriella Wilde with Riverdale‘s Roberto Aguirre Sacasa as the screenwriter. In fact, Aguirre Sacasa has long been a huge fan of the story, and he had Riverdale do its own take on Carrie: The Musical for the show’s first musical episode.
Previously, the book was also adapted into a movie with Sissy Spacek as the lead character and an equally impressive cast on the most recent film. The ensemble included Amy Irving, Piper Laurie, Nancy Allen, and John Travolta. The Rage: Carrie 2 was the sequel to that movie, however, it was generally panned by critics and fans. It also had a TV movie adaptation which isn’t as well known as the other versions.
Right now, Stephen King is currently becoming one of the hottest names in television adaptations. The Outsider will premiere on HBO this January with Jason Bateman, Cynthia Erivo, and Ben Mendelsohn set to star. Hulu currently airs Castle Rock, CBS All Access is set to debut The Stand, and EPIX recently gave a series order to Jerusalem’s Lot.
