‘Carrie’ remake pushed to October

Sony's remake of “Carrie,” originally scheduled for release in March, has been pushed back to October, Variety reports, where the studio feels the second screen adaptation of Stephen King's classic horror novel will be better positioned to find an audience two wees before Halloween.

This “Carrie” sees director Kimberly Peirce (“Boys Don't Cry,” “Stop-Loss”) take over for Brian De Palma and Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore for Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie. “Carrie”'s new release date is one week in advance of “Paranormal Activity 5,” the previous four installments of which have dominated the box office in traditionally horror-friendly October. A competition between Sony and Paramount (“Paranormal Activity”'s studio) thus looms: “Carrie,” as a new take by a woman director on a female-centric story previously told by men, seems to be positioned as the thinking moviegoer's October horror movie, in opposition to the fifth installment in an ongoing series. The commercial juggernaut that is the “Paranormal Activity” series cannot be discounted, though, and as all matters pertaining to movie commerce, it remains to be seen what will actually happen.

Taking “Carrie”'s place on March 15th will be “The Call,” starring Halle Berry as a 911 operator who has to save a girl (Abigail Breslin) from a killer. “The Call” is directed by Brad Anderson (“Session 9,” “The Machinist”).
