A History of Carrie From the Book to the New Stage Adaptation

The always excellent Bev Vincent wrote a great article about the film and stage adaptations of Carrie.

These days, it seems like just about every film adaptation of a Stephen King novel is slated for a remake. Kimberly Pierce, director of Stop-Loss and Boys Don't Cry, is reportedly in talks to remake Carrie from a script by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for MGM and Screen Gems. The script is supposedly "more faithful" to the novel than Brian De Palma's classic version, which came out 35 years ago. Yes, you read that right: 35 years ago. Hard to believe.

Check it out on Fear Net, News from the Dead Zone.
