Stephen King’s Carrie is being adapted once again. With three adaptations of one of King’s most famous works already in existence, it was a bit of surprise when we learned via Collider that yeat another version is in the works. There is one difference, this time Carrie‘s getting a limited series from FX and MGM.
There may be one change to the iconic character played in the past by Sissy Spacek, Angela Bettis, and Chloë Grace Moretz. According to Collider’s Jeff Sneider, Carrie White will likely this time be played by an actress of color or a trans actress.
Though it’s still very early in the development process and there’s no script yet, sources say that this time around, telekinetic teen Carrie White will likely be played by either a trans performer or an actress of color rather than a cis white woman.” Sneider stated.
King’s famous tale centers on Carrie White, a shy, high school outcast who has been extremely sheltered by her overbearing and over religious mother. After being bullied by classmates and humiliated at the prom, Carrie unleashes her telekinetic powers on her classmates and teachers at the dance.
