MGM CEO Roger Birnbaum dropped some hints at University of Denver this week (about 25 min from me ffs) about upcoming MGM projects including the Carrie reboot starring Chloe Moretz in the title role. Apparently the reboot might be filmed in a found footage style either fully or partially.
If you don't know what found footage is, it basically is the element of a found home movie. Most scenes are done in one cut and have more of a documentary feel to them. Many recent movies have used the format such as Chronicle, Paranormal Activity, Cloverfield, Quarantine, REC, The Last Exorcism, Apollo 18, Project X, etc..
Um... the fuck? I understand they are trying to modernize it but I don't really see how this is possible. Unless by modernizing they are going to use the element of cell phone cameras during the prom scene, or something. I don't know if I like this.
