The prom queen you don’t want to throw tampons at, Carrie White, is making her way to the same network responsible for American Horror Story, FX.
Collider reported today that Stephen King’s temperamental high school student probably won’t be played by a cis white female either, but rather a trans woman or a person of color.
But the announcement is so fresh that a script hasn’t even been written yet and details about producing and writing credits aren’t even available.
Of course, the source material is 45 years old and there have already been three movies based on the novel, plus a “sequel.”
The first adaptation was the Brian De Palma directed original in 1976 starring Sissy Spacek, then came the 2002 TV interpretation with Angela Bettis and finally the 2013 cinematic reboot starring Chloë Grace Moretz.
There was also a well-received but odd “sequel” at the turn of the century called “The Rage: Carrie 2” that basically followed the same plot as the original tale with a few differences including the titular character’s name and a weird plot twist.
There are no details on when the series will air on FX but iHorror will keep you posted.
