FX Developing Limited Series Based on Stephen King’s ‘Carrie’

Following a successful partnership on Fargo, FX and MGM Television are developing a limited series based on Stephen King‘s classic horror novel Carrie, Collider has exclusively learned.

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, as in past adaptations. FX declined to comment, while a representative for MGM TV did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Carrie has been adapted several times, though never better than Brian De Palma‘s original 1976 version starring Sissy SpacekPiper LaurieAmy Irving, and a very young John Travolta. That film spawned a 1999 sequel — Irving’s Sue Snell returns — titled The Rage: Carrie 2, which has been largely forgotten. More recently, Kimberly Peirce directed a 2013 adaptation starring Chloë Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore that fell somewhere in between on the spectrum. That’s just one reason of many why this project’s potential casting twist is so interesting — because it would bring something new to the Carrie table.

Keep in mind that FX has one of the best track records in all of entertainment, so if they see the appeal of tackling this story again through a modern, more inclusive, still terrifying lens, then I trust them completely. I have no idea who wrote the script or who is producing this version of Carrie, but if John Landgraf says ‘yes,’ he typically has a very good reason.

Of course, we’re in the middle of a King renaissance of sorts. This year alone, the prolific author was behind WB’s horror movies It: Chapter 2 and Doctor Sleep, as well as Paramount’s remake of Pet Sematary and Netflix’s In the Tall Grass. Up next is HBO’s The Outsider, which is worth the wait until its arrival on Jan. 12, and then The Stand is coming to CBS All Access courtesy of director Josh Boone.

To find out who stars in The Stand, read our scoop about Alexander Skarsgard and the rest of the cast right here.

Monday the 16th: Ever wonder what Jason Voorhees does after the 13th?

Monday the 16th is an amusing short film from Michael Kallio that takes a look at Jason Voorhees’ life after Friday the 13th. What does the hockey mask wearing slasher do to fill his time?

Monday the 16th is a hilarious spoof on Sean S. Cunningham’s Friday the 13th series of films from the mind of Michael Kallio. It answers the question, what exactly does Jason Voorhees (Darren Mangler) do after his “camping” vacation weekend is over?

If you are a fan of Mike Judge’s Office Space, then you are going to love this horror parody short film. When Jason isn’t chasing teenagers in the woods with a machete, he works for “the fifth most productive hockey equipment manufacturing company on the eastern seaboard.”
