Yet another adaptation of Stephen King’s Carrie is in the works! FX and MGM are currently developing a limited series based on the book, which centres around a shy, bullied teenager who develops telekinetic powers.
This will be the fourth time that Carrie has been adapted, though the first time it’s been turned into a series. The 2002 made-for-TV version was intended as a backdoor pilot for a series, but nothing came of it.
While the series is still in the very early stages of development, it’s rumoured that Carrie may be played by a trans performer or an actress of colour.
