Carrie As A Limited Series?

Posted: December 22, 2019, 00:34
Collider reports that yet another adaptation of Carrie might be happening. This time as a limited series by FX and MGM and Carrie will probably be played by a trans performer or an actress of color rather that a white woman if the reports are true.

Following a successful partnership on Fargo, FX and MGM Television are developing a limited series based on Stephen King‘s classic horror novel Carrie, Collider has exclusively learned.

Though it’s still very early in the development process and there’s no script yet, sources say that this time around, telekinetic teen Carrie White will likely be played by either a trans performer or an actress of color rather than a cis white woman, as in past adaptations. FX declined to comment, while a representative for MGM TV did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

What are your thoughts on this? Do we need yet another adaptation of Carrie?
