Hunky Dory

Last month we learned that Disney/Pixar are planning a sequel film to the hugely popular animated film Finding Nemo. Today we learn that Ellen DeGeneres, who voices the Nemo character Dory, is in “serious talks” to reprise her role for this planned sequel film.

Carrie White, and Red All Over

Earlier this year we learned that Chloë Moretz and Julianne Moore will star in the forthcoming remake of the 1976 horror film Carrie and today we get our first look at both actresses in their respective roles. Moretz plays the central figure Carrie White, a bullied teen with powerful telekinetic abilities. Moore plays her psychotically religious mother who abuses and ultimately destroys her own daughter. As I understand it, this version of Carrie will be focused more on the original Stephen King novel than the ’76 film but one things for certain … the famed “bloody prom scene” will be featured.
