THE CALL, starring Halley Berry and Abigail Breslin will officially take the horror flick's original date, March 15, on Sony's theatrical release slate.
The original big-screen adaptation of the High School horror classic was released in 1976, and starred Sissy Spacek as Carrie, with Piper Laurie, and John Travolta. The film spawned the 2002 made-for-TV sequel, THE RAGE: CARRIE 2, and earned both Spacek and Laurie Academy Award nods.
