Dark Shadows star Chloe Grace Moretz is excited to be the new Carrie, starting work on June 1 in Toronto on the new adaptation of the classic Stephen King novel. But one major voice has been silent about the casting choice, and that's original Carrie Sissy Spacek – until now.
"I think she's a wonderful actress," Spacek tells ComingSoon.net while promoting her new memoir, My Extraordinary Ordinary Life, adding of the idea that Julianne Moore would be playing the role of Carrie's mother originated by Piper Laurie, "That's great!"

Boys Don't Cry director Kimberly Pierce will helm the MGM remake based on King's first published novel about a shy high school student whose home life is hell, thanks to her oppressive, overly religious mother, and wreaks havoc at the prom with her telekinetic powers. Spacek earned an Oscar nomination for the Brian De Palma-directed, 1976 original.
