Steven King Wants Lindsay Lohan To Play Carrie, If A Remake Happens

“I’ve heard rumblings about a ‘Carrie’ remake, as I have about ‘The Stand’ and ‘It.’ Who knows if it will happen? The real question is why, when the original was so good? I mean, not ‘Casablanca’ or anything, but a really good horror-suspense film, much better than the book. Piper Laurie really got her teeth into the bad-mom thing. Although Lindsay Lohan as Carrie White … hmmm. It would certainly be fun to cast. I guess I could get behind it if they turned the project over to one of the Davids: Lynch or Cronenberg.”

—Steven King shares that he’d prefer that the original “Carrie,” one of our top 10 prom movies, not be remade. But if it is, he could see LiLo in the lead role. I dunno—that could be pretty awesome. And I cosign on David Lynch directing. [EW]
