A girl, a prom and a bucket of blood set the stage for terror in Director Kimberly Peirce’s reboot of the Stephen King horror classic Carrie.
Peirce puts a modern spin on the story of a young misfit girl whose flowering into womanhood unleashes a terrifying power on those who have abused her both at school and at home.
Following the appropriately scheduled Halloween night DGA membership screening in Los Angeles, Peirce sat down with Director Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man) to discuss how she reimagined the film as a superhero origins tale.
In addition to Carrie, Peirce’s other works include the feature films Stop-Loss and Boys Don't Cry; and the short film The Last Good Breath. She joined the DGA in 2004.
