Screen Gems had previously released the following summary of the film:

The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Moore) and her daughter Carrie (Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson (Doubleday), but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell (Wilde), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc. 

The original Carrie was released in 1976 and was directed by Brian De Palma. The film starred Sissy SpacekPiper LaurieAmy IrvingJohn TravoltaWilliam KattNancy Allen, and P.J. Soles. The film grossed over $25 million at the box office and was nominated for two Academy Awards, Best Actress (Spacek) and Best Supporting Actress (Laurie).

The new version of Carrie, scripted by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, is said to be less a remake of the De Palma film and more a re-adaptation of the original text by Stephen King.
