We already knew that Julianne Moore’s name was in the mix for potentially playing the role of Margaret White in the new “Carrie” remake. According to Deadline.com, Moore has been officially offered the role of the crazy mom with an absolutely insane personality.
Margaret White is the role of Carrie’s mother. She is very religious, but not the singing, laughing, church carnival type of religious, or even the bible-thumping door-to-door lunch interrupters… the out of her mind insane type.
The remake will be directed by Kimberly Peirce. If Moore takes this role, it could mean an Oscar nomination for her, as it did in 1976 for Piper Laurie who played Margaret White.
