Lindsay Lohan and Megan Fox are reportedly competing for the leading role in a possible remake of “Carrie.”
There is some good and bad news that’s coming with this whole ordeal.
First of all, “Carrie” was a classic. It had a few Oscar nominations, which is rare for a horror movie. Plus, this movie is still creepy after three decades. So why would anyone want to remake something that was so memorable the first time?
To start, the good news that comes with this is that not everyone agrees on the classic part. Some might think that this film had potential to be amazing, but had a so-so result.
Now here’s the real deal- Lindsay Lohan and Megan Fox being in consideration to take the part? Now that would result in some interesting outcomes.
Lindsay Lohan might have a chance considering that she does portray the teen-Sissy Spacek look. Lindsay’s sandy-blonde hair and freckles match Sissy’s look. Also, Lindsay isn’t really the pretty type…although others may disagree on that too. But either way, her look can easily present the poor victim that the mean girls pick on. And with all of Lindsay’s trouble she’s been into, she could probably act out her tantrums that Carrie’s religious mother causes her pretty well. And the prom scene would be pretty fitting too.
The downfall on Lindsay taking on this role is the fact that it’s Lindsay Lohan and not someone who didn’t blow her big chance on becoming a seriously taken actress, but who rather chose to take on a different spotlight- the spotlight that shines down on drinking and driving, frequent trips to rehab, court, jail sentences, allegedly stealing jewelry, etc. The public is seeing Lindsay as just a joke who continues to screw herself over. So to have Lindsay take on a role that was a memorable classic thirty years ago? That would just bring the troubled actress some extra haters.
As for Megan Fox taking on the role, there are some pros and cons with that one as well. Megan would definitely portray the lead of a horror movie well. She has the mysterious, eerie look that would fit for a creepy movie. Also, her character in “Jennifer’s Body” would show a guaranteed exciting prom scene. Megan is also doing splendidly in her career. Although she’s not taken seriously, who can help but experience a guilty pleasure when she gives the look of sultry charm?
However, the scale does boost low for Megan. Can an audience really believe sultry charm as a victim? Can anyone really imagine a gorgeous starlet getting picked on by the nasty girls? Especially during the “Plug it up!” scene?
“Carrie” may not need to be remade, but if that’s what it comes down to, then maybe they can find an actress who won’t be too busy in court to film…and also someone who isn’t a 25 on a 1-10 beauty scale.
