The original 1976 movie starred Sissy Spacek as the bullied teen Carrie White who discovers she has telekinetic powers. So compelling was Spacek's performance in the role, that it earned her an Oscar nomination. Could such accolades be on the cards for Chloe too?

Taking to Twitter to reveal her thrilling news to fans, Chloe tweeted: "Never been so happy in my life! Thank you Kim Pierce and thank you MGM for the chance of a lifetime. I will never forget!"

Already a seasoned horror actress - starring in the vampire flick Let Me In - no doubt Chloe will be in her element.
