Playwright/comic writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who recently was called into to help rework Broadway musical SPIDER-MAN: TURN OFF THE DARK, has been hired to pen a new adaptation of CARRIE, reports Deadline.com. MGM and Screen Gems are eager to remake the Stephen King horror tale, which follows a telekinetic teen who lives with an abusive religious zealot mother and suffers under torment by fellow students at high school.

Aguirre-Sacasa will stay truer to the book than the 1976 film did. The writer previously wrote the graphic novel version of King's THE STAND.
