The 51-year-old actress has signed up to play the titular character's abusive, fundamentalist Christian mother, Margaret White, in a reboot of the 1976 horror movie, which will see Dark Shadows actress Chloe Moretz take on the lead role. The Three Musketeers star Gabriella Wilde will portray Sue Snell in the film, which will see Kimberly Peirce direct with Kevin Misher producing, Deadline reports.

Kimberley is thought to be using Stephen King's original book as an inspiration for the reboot, which could see a new take on the story.
