(CBS News) Two new images have been released from the upcoming remake of "Carrie," starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore.

One of the stills revisits an iconic scene from the 1976 Brian De Palma horror film - Moretz, as Carrie White, standing in her prom dress and covered in blood.

The other image (see below) shows Moore as Margaret White, Carrie's abusive, religious fanatic mother.

"We only have, like, four chances to get it right. Because that stuff stains your hair," Moretz told Entertainment Weekly (which first published the photos) of filming that memorable scene.

Moore told EW of her character, "This woman has clearly had a psychotic break, perhaps several. But what's sad about it for me is that she's clearly sick and here's this poor child in the thrall of this person who is seriously ill. And on top of that, they have this mother-daughter relationship. So we want to make that relationship as meaningful as possible, even though it is horrible and destructive."

Sissy Spacek played Carrie White, the shy high school student with telepathic powers, in the original "Carrie," while Piper Laurie played her mother. Both received Oscar nominations for their roles in the film.

Kimberly Peirce ("Boys Don't Cry") is directing this new version of "Carrie," which will reportedly be more modern and character-focused. The film is scheduled to be released on March 15, 2013.
