Carrie White was the title protagonist of the Stephen King novel who appeared to be dead at the end of the movie and book. In the final scene of the movie, however, a hand is seen reaching out of the dirt of the destruction of her home.
King announced that he will bring one of his most beloved characters back in a sequel, "Carrie... Pops Her Cherry." The film wersion of the sequel is already in pre-production and its release should coincide with the release of the book.
Said the writer, "I wanted to bring my character into the mainstream of today, where all teenagers are sexually active and where Carrie's powers would be seen as cool. In today's world, her mother would not be viewed as a nutcase, but just someone using her freedom of expression."
"Telekenesis and other mental powers would be of great advantage in today's world, and would make someone like Carrie very popular with the other kids."
When asked who he intended to have as the lover that popped Carrie's cherry (took her virginity), Stephen King said that "you should read the book and find out.... but understand that John Travolta has agreed to come back and play the same character that he did in the original."
