Carrie Remake Pushed Back From March To October

As much as I love Brian DePalma’s film, I’ve been looking forward to Kimberly Peirce‘s do-over of Carrie. Until now, the film was set for release in March – so soon! – but Sony have just bumped it back to October 18th – so far away!

So why did they do this? To better fit with the Hallowe’en vibe? To chime with the film’s prom-based plot points? To give them more time for even more marketing?

Or so that they might rework things a little?

We don’t know, of course. We may never know.

Incidentally, Carrie’s March 15th date has now been given to something called The Call. I was having a hard time thinking what this might be so I searched “the call” 2013 in Youtube, and here’s what I found…

What a bizarre coincidence.

The Call, incidentally, was previously called The Hive. It doesn’t seem to have a trailer yet, stars Halle Berry and was directed by Brad Anderson. Maybe Sony just needed a dumping spot for this one…
