Julianne Moore to Join CARRIE Remake as Crazy Mother

Last month it was rumored that Julianne Moore was in the running to take on the role of the insane mother in the Kim Peirce directed remake of Stephen King's Carrie. Chloe Moretz is already attached to take on the title role, and Moore is currently in talks to take on the role of Margaret White, creepily played by Piper Laurie in the 1976 movie. I can easily see Moore in this role, there's no doubt she would be scary as hell as an insane religious fanatic. 

The horror thriller focuses on a misunderstood teenage girl named Carrie White, and her extraordinary telekinetic powers, which leads her on a violent rampage of bloody revenge. High school can be a brutal place, but don't mess with the little girl that can kill you with her mind. 

The original film was directed by Brian De Palma and starred Sissy Spacek, John Travolta, Amy Irving and Piper Laurie. This latest big screen version of the story is supposed to be more faithful to the King book than the original movie.

Can you see Moore taking on this part?
