Production on the remake of the 1976 high-school horror classic adapted from the Stephen King novel "Carrie" is officially underway and star Chloe Moretz has already been spotted on set in the costume that reflects her character's sheltered existence and suppressed upbringing.
The actress spoke a bit about the look of the titular character in an interview with Coming Soon earlier this year.
"It's something that's very different from me," she said. "It's an out of body thing. I'm becoming a totally different person for it. I'm letting go of all of my self-esteem issues and just kind of going into it. You have to."
Take a look at Moretz on set as well as the synopsis for the film below.
Director Kimberly Peirce reimagines Stephen King's best-selling novel for MGM and Screen Gems' take on the enduring genre classic. Starring Chloë Grace Moretz, Julianne Moore and Judy Greer, "Carrie" tells the supernatural tale of a telekinetic teenage girl tormented by her peers
The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Moore) and her daughter Carrie (Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson (Portia Doubleday), but only Chris' best friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc. Brian De Palma’s 1976 film version of "Carrie" earned Oscar nominations for stars Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie.
"Carrie" opens in AMC Theatres on March 15, 2013.
