Film fans who consider Brian DePalma's 1976 movie Carrie an inadequate interpretation of the Stephen King novel will be delighted to learn that MGM is planning a "retelling".

Sissy Spacek in CarrieAccording to the Hollywood Reporter, the studio has teamed up with Screen Gems for the project, and brought on board playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa to pen the screenplay.

The scribe has recently been working on "troubled" musical Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark, and previously adapted King's The Stand for a Marvel graphic novel.

DePalma's Carrie – starring Sissy Spacek (pictured, having a bad hair moment at the senior prom) and John Travolta – is a bit of a horror classic, so it remains to be seen just what added value MGM can squeeze from a rehash. ®
