King has commented on the remake of Carrie and he is very clear as to who he wants to see as Carrie... The following is from Talk Stephen King:

EW has a great quote from King about news of the Carrie remake. Like all of us, I think he's left scratching his head as to why such a project is necessary. In fact, he says the movie was better than the book!

King says, “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, 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."

And then there's this wonderful gem: "Although Lindsay Lohan as Carrie White… hmmm. It would certainly be fun to cast.”
