so whats up with this thing... a tv movie remake of something that didn't need to be remade... and shot on digital video. blah. why not adapt another king novel instead. i swear hollywood needs to go back to film school or something. ok so it makes sense now NBC has announced a remake of "Carrie" that will also serve as a backdoor pilot for potential new weekly series or franchises. While NBC has so far ordered only scripts on the Carrie project, both projects are likely to end up on the air. Scribe Bryan Fuller is attached to write the new "Carrie," which will follow closely the plot of the original 1976 feature about a teenage girl with special powers. The new picture, supervised by MGM TV topper Hank Cohen, will be set in the present and feature greatly enhanced special effects(so enhance the effects and degrade the quality). The story will also be tweaked to allow for either a weekly series or movie franchise. they want to make a carrie series or a franchise.. hmm guess carrie and carrie 2 didn't really mean anything. maybe they can turn it into something like you cant do that on television with blood instead of slime. that i would watch.
