Playwright/screenwriter Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has been hired to write a remake of the 1976 horror classic Carrie for MGM. The writer was recently brought on to re-work the Broadway superhero musical, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.
It is said that Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa will stick much closer to Stephen King's novel than the original movie did. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has worked with Stephen King in the past, penning a graphic novel based on Stephen King's book The Stand.
No production schedule was released for the Carrie remake.
