He thinks it’d be fun to cast
Today, they got him to comment on the Carrie remake recently set up at Screen Gems. Here’s what he had to say:
“Iâ??ve heard rumblings about a Carrie remake, as I have about The Stand and It. Who knows if it will happen? The real question is why, when the original was so good? I mean, not Casablanca, or anything, but a really good horror-suspense film, much better than the book. Piper Laurie really got her teeth into the bad-mom thing. Although Lindsay Lohan as Carrie Whiteâ?¦ hmmm. It would certainly be fun to cast. I guess I could get behind it if they turned the project over to one of the Davids: Lynch or Cronenberg.”
And there you have it. But knowing Screen Gems, they’ll get a no-name “visionary” and simply churn out a turd.
