Chloe Moretz Beat Out Selena Gomez For The Lead Role In 'Carrie'

Tue, March 27, 2012 5:38pm EDT by 19 Comments

Chloe may have snagged the lead role of Carrie, but Selena almost got the part!

Chloe Moretz has some big shoes to fill! The 15-year-old Kick-Ass star was offered the lead in Stephen King’s remake of Carrie and she couldn’t be happier!

“Never been so happy in my life! Thank you Kim Pierce and thank u MGM for the chance of a lifetime i will never forget,” she tweeted.

In the film, Chloe will play Carrie White, a telekinetic teenager who turns prom night into a bloodbath after she’s humiliated by the popular kids. Naturally, there was fierce competition for the iconic role, including acting veteran Dakota Fanning.

Selena Gomez was also considered for the role, but ultimately we went after Chloe,” an industry insider exclusively tells HollywoodLife.com. “We think she would be perfect for the role that made Sissy Spacek an international star!”

Are YOU excited about the re-make of Carrie?

This is old news lol but idc stop being mean to Chloe guys. I love Chloe and SHE IS pretty. omg If I were a guy I would have a crush on her. You don’t need to be ugly to be a victim of bullying. Pretty girls get bullied too. Just be nice guys pls smh btw I love Selena too, she’s so cute but yeah, don’t be mean to Chloe or Selena cause they’re perf k bye

P.S. Chloe IS pretty (also Selena, they’re both amazing)

NO disrespect to Chloe, but Carrie wasn’t a pretty girl and Selena is to pretty for a part like that.

I’d prefer Selena. Chloe is too young to play Carrie. Carrie shows her breast (full breast with nipples). Chloe is 15 or 14. That’s not a wise choice for a girl that age to play Chloe. I hope they don’t lower the film to pg-13. I should be a R rated flick. Bloody too! It won’t be the same if they don’t show Carrie’s tits. Selena is a woman now. It’s more reasonable for her to show her tits.

It was an awful awful film. So much that it was considered “cult”. Why on earth they wanna redo it?!
