Chloe Grace Moretz is 'just a girl' in this Carrie teaser

This era of film has produced more remakes than any other in history. I have no stats to back that up, but I stand by what I just said. Prove me wrong. I dare you.

And the remake train has finally rolled around to the film adaptation of bestselling author Stephen King's first book, Carrie. Be still my beating heart.

Today Yahoo premiered the teaser trailer for Carrie, which is directed by Kimberly Peirce -- who directed the Oscar nominated Boys Don't Cry back in 1999 -- and adapted by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa -- who is best know for . . . Glee?

OK, interesting choices for behind the camera. As is the casting of Hit Girl herself, Chloe Grace Moretz. This film has some talent, I will give it that. Maybe not the Glee part, but still.

At least the plot hasn't changed: a sheltered high school girl unleashes her newly developed telekinetic powers after she is pushed too far by her peers.

The new spin on Carrie hits theatres March 15, 2013.
