MGM, Screen Gems Toss ‘Carrie’ Into The Reboot Machine

It’s still prom season and that means there’s still time to dump a bucket of blood on your favorite school outcast. Remember to always use pig’s blood, and play it safe, guys.

MGM and Screen Gems are teaming up to reboot Carrie, the horror classic based on Stephen King‘s first published novel. Now that MGM is more financially stable, they’ve been rebooting everything and anything, from Robocop to Child’s Play. You can’t walk down the street without overhearing a conversation like, “when are they gonna make another new version of Carrie, after Carrie 2: The Rage was such a hit?” That’s probably why the studios hired comic book writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who wrote the new, less horrifying version of Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, to pen the screenplay.

Oh, one more prom safety tip: make sure the outcast you dump pig’s blood on doesn’t have psychic powers. That’ll cause the evening go south real fast. (Hollywood Reporter)
