Chloe Moretz wins title role in 'Carrie' remake
'Kick-Ass' star wins the crown over a host of other actresses
Chloe Moretz is heading to the prom - and it's not going to be pretty.
Following our report yesterday that the "Kick-Ass" actress was in competition with "Haunting of Molly Hartley" star Haley Bennett for the title role in director Kimberly Peirce's "Carrie" remake, Deadline is now saying that Moretz has officially been offered the part. Moreover, it appears the actress was so well-liked in her first audition last weekend that she booked the job right off the bat.

Is this gonna be kinda awesome?
"Carrie" is a remake of the Brian De Palma film, which itself was based on Stephen King's 1974 debut novel. The story tells of a teenage misfit named Carrie White who uses her telekinetic powers to unleash destruction on her small town after a cruel prank is pulled on her at the high school prom.
MGM and Screen Gems hope to begin production on the film this year.
Moretz will next be seen in Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows" opposite Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer and Helena Bonham Carter. You can check out a photo gallery of the characters in the film here.
