Liz and Dick

Gabriella Wilde (“The Three Musketeers”) will play Sue Snell and Judy Greer is likely to play Miss Collins in the upcoming new adaptation of Stephen King’s “Carrie”. Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore also star in the project which begins shooting shortly.

Both characters are two of the nicer ones in the film – the former a student who feels guilty over a previous humiliation of Carrie and tries to mend ways, the latter a gym teacher concerned about Carrie’s welfare. [Source: Bloody Disgusting]
