Those eagerly anticipating the new film adaptation of Stephen King’s classic horror novel, Carrie, will have to wait a bit longer; the release date has been moved from March to the classic month for horror, October, debuting on the 18th. That is the same date as the release of another big book-to-movie title, The Seventh Son, based on Joseph Delaney’s Revenge of the Witch, the first title in the Last Apprentice series (HarperCollins/Greenwillow, 2005). Curiously Julianne Moore stars in both, as Carrie’s deranged mother in the former and as Mother Malkin, “the most evil witch in the world.” in the latter.
The original 1976 adaptation of Carrie was directed by suspense specialist, Brian De Palma. This time out, the movie is in the hands of a female director, Kimberly Peirce, whose feature debut was the 1999 Boys Don’t Cry. Carrie is played by Chloë Grace Moretz.
