Confirming last week's rumor that Chloe Moretz (Dark Shadows, Let Me In) was one of two actresses being considered for the role of Carrie in the upcoming remake, a new report reveals that MGM has officially made her an offer.

According to Deadline, MGM and director Kim Peirce have made Moretz a formal offer today. Pending successful negotiations, she'll be the new Carrie White.

As previously reported, a number of other actresses have read for the role, include Dakota Fanning, Emily Browning, Bella Heathcote, Lily Collins, and Shailene Woodley. MGM and Screen Gems are developing a new version of Carrie that will more closely resemble Stephen King’s book than Brian De Palma’s movie. The remake picked up steam in January, when Boys Don’t Cry director Kimberly Peirce joined the project.

When Chloe Moretz's deal is official, we'll start hearing more about supporting cast. Last week, it was made known that they are seeking a high-profile actress to play Carrie’s mother and are looking at Jodie Foster and Julianne Moore. Shooting is expected to begin this year and we should have more casting information in the coming weeks.
