Stephen King’s Carrie Is Getting a Limited Series On FX TV
If there was anything that we needed to change, it was this Carrie movie. Luckily, Stephen King’s popular novel “Carrie” is going to turn into TV entertainment yet again. FX TV will be hosting the series after the release of the book back in 1974. The novel has been adapted many times in the past, with the first movie coming out in 1976. Back then, Brian De Palma directed the movie whereas, Sissy Spacek performed as Carrie.
Stephen King’s Carrie Will Not Be A White Woman
The news comes directly from Collider, who first reported it. Right now, there is no script, and no release date, there is only a very early development process going on. However, the report claims that instead of the previous movie where Carrie was a white woman, this time things will be different. A trans performer or even a woman of color will be starring in the role of Stephen King’s Carrie. FX TV declined to comment about the upcoming limited series.
In an honest review, while Carrie has come up on TV several times in the past, De Palma’s version of the story is considered the best. Because of that film, a sequel, “The Rage: Carrie 2”, is a largely forgotten title. There is also a 2013 version directed by Julianne Moore. Chloe Grace Moretz starred as the main role then.
FX TV is said to have one of the top track records of its shows in the entertainment business. Therefore, if they are seeing something in Stephen King’s Carrie, then we can expect something good to come out of the limited TV show.
This year we have already seen several of Stephen King’s works show up on the TV screens. “It: Chapter 2″ and “Doctor Sleep”, along with Paramount’s “Pet Sematary” and “In the Tall Grass” by Netflix. HBO is also working on a title by King called “The Outsider”, releasing on January 12.
Right now there is no other information available on the new Carrie TV show, but keep watching this space as more information pours in!
