Interesting Quote: Stephen King

"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, [it's] 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."
Stephen doesn't know why there's a remake to 'Carrie'

And with Lohan?
If you wanna see "Carrie", watch "Carrie".

I would like to see a black boy named Cary in an all white school of haters.
It would have more meaning I feel.
Don't take this the wrong way, I love my caucasian brothers. I want the starring role.
