"I start that June 1st," aldus Moretz. "...It's going to be very well done. I don't want to jinx it, but [Peirce] is a genius, genius, genius director. I would never do it with someone that I don't trust. I trust her more than a lot of the directors I've worked with. She's the right woman for the job."
Volgens Moretz wordt er niet teveel gekeken naar de originele verfilming van het eerste boek van schrijver Stephen King. Deze verschijn in 1974 en werd geregisseerd door Brain De Palma: "I'm actually not looking at the original, even though De Palma's movie was one of the best movies ever made. It's completely iconic and I'm proud to be able to be doing a retooling of it. We're kind of going off the book. It's darker and much more psychological. More 'Black Swan.' You're really looking into her mind and it really looks into the relationship of Margaret and Carrie. It's set in modern time, so it's a lot different."
Moretz zegt ook nog iets over de indrukwekkende eerste fan-made poster, gemaakt door ene Pierre-Luc Boucher, die ook op het bureau van Peirce belandde: "That was a cool poster! Kim sent that to me. She said, 'Oh my god, you've got to look at this. It's really, really, really cool!' We both felt so pumped. Now we're chomping at the bit to get in there." Check de poster hieronder:
