Stephen King’s “Carrie” is getting another adaptation, as FX is in development on a limited series based on the iconic horror novel & film.
The project, first reported by Collider, is in its early stages, and a writer is not yet attached. There are no further details. But, the most recent version of the iconic story was the 2013 Sony Screen/Gems film starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore, directed by Kimberly Pierce and penned by Lawrence D. Cohen and Roberto Aguiire-Sacasa.
Sources say other versions have included “Carrie: The Musical,” which first debuted on Broadway in 1988, a “Carrie” TV movie in 2002 from director David Carson and writer Bryan Fuller, and the 1976 Brian De Palma film which earned Sissy Spacek a best actress nomination and Piper Laurie a best support actress nomination at the 1977 Academy Awards.
Carrie would join several Stephen King adaptations for TV and film. Jerusalems Lot being brought to life at Epix, starring Adrien Brody, while “The Dark Half” is being adapted as a movie at MGM, with “Her Smell” director Alex Ross Perry attached to direct. King’s “Castle Rock” recently wrapped its second season on Hulu, and an adaptation of King’s “The Stand” is set to air on CBS All Access.
