Portia Doubleday and Judy Greer have joined the cast of Kim Peirce’s upcoming remake of the Stephen King novel, Carrie, Deadline reports. Doubleday will play the central antagonist, Chris Hargensen and Judy Greer will play gym teacher Miss Desjardin.

Released in 1974, Carrie was King’s first published novel and tells the story of a high school girl who, through telekinetic powers, takes revenge on peers that have mocked her.

Most famously adapted for the screen by Brian De Palma in 1976, Carrie received a sequel in 1999 and a made-for-TV adaptation in 2002. The story was also the basis for a famously-troubled Broadway adaptation in 1988.

The new version of Carrie, to be 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.
