LiLo in 'Carrie' remake? Sissy Spacek can see it

Stephen King has already remarked that he thinks it would be "fun" to cast Lindsay Lohan as the lead in a remake of "Carrie," and now original “Carrie” star Sissy Spacek says that she’s not opposed to it either.

"I read about it and I was very flattered because they ran a picture of me and of Lindsay Lohan," Spacek told NextMovie over the weekend while promoting her movie “The Help.”

"I was like, 'Oh my God, she's really a beautiful girl' and so I was very flattered,” she goes on. “I was also flattered that they were casting someone to look like me instead of the real Carrie described in the book. It's gonna be real interesting."

The reports that Linds could wind up getting doused in pig's blood on film began back in May, after it was announced that playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa had been hired by MGM and Screen Gems to spin another take on Stephen King’s story.

The book was originally adapted in 1976, depicting telekinetic teen Carrie and the revenge she takes after high school bullies take things too far at prom.

According to TMZ, Lindsay Lohan's up for the part if it should be offered, citing unnamed sources that claim she's "stoked" King brought up her name and thinks that working on the project "would be epic."

Casting agents for "Carrie," what say you?

    But, they already remade it!
    But seriously...the only interesting thing they could do is set it in a black school.

      I was gonna say, based on that picture of her, she'd be better suited to play the Piper Laurie role. YIKES!!!

    If they're going to do it, they better make it soon. Lohan's aging at twice the normal rate.

    Sissy Spacek is one of the best actresses ever, and she is still amazingly youthful and lovely.

    LILO is almost as big a skaaank ho as I am. She hasnt killed off any babies yet but give her some time. She might even attain my level of b!tchdom with practice.

    She would be absolutely perfect as Chris. Extra sluuuuttty and big hoooters.

    LILO is too skaannkky for that role. She needs to play the part of Chris Hargenson the lead bully girl.

    Her daughter, Schyler Fisk would actually be perfect (she's been in movies like Orange County). Lindsay Lohan is a terrifically talented actress- but let's face it- a train wreck. Can the studio affors the risks- and insurance- it would take to have her in the movie?
    That said, she'd be great in the role, and maybe make people notice her acting ability once again. Either way- it's a cool idea IMO to remake the movie- I'd definately watch it.

      No kidding! I'd heard the name, but didn't realize that was her daughter. I just adore he, I think she's amazing. And I agree. It's truly every other week we;re hearing about a movie that that they're looking to put this chick into, and then something happens. (Usually jail) As with Charlie (Everyone knows, Sheen) the blood test every day or other, however they do it, because she will have to sign a drug contract,with her past would just make me nervous. That could cost the production a ton if they had to shut down while she's in jail-rehab.
