Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
We learned back in May that the new adaptation of Stephen King's IT had relocated from Warner Bros. over to New Line Cinema. With Cary Fukunaga in the director's chair the film continues to move forward.
Dan Lin, who will be producing the new adaptation of IT was recently interviewed by Vulture and had the following to say on the project:
“The idea is to start official prep in March for a summer shoot. The most important thing is that Stephen King gave us his blessing. We didn’t want to make this unless he felt it was the right way to go, and when we sent him the script, the response that Cary got back was, ‘Go with God, please! This is the version the studio should make.’”
The Studios emphasis will be less slashery and will be going for more thrills and chills. The plan is for there to be two different IT films. The first one telling the story of the kids and then the second one would see the focus put on them as adults.
"IT follows a group of kids called the Losers Club who defeat a creature called It. Years later, the creature returns and the club, now adults, have to band together again even though they have no memory of the first battle.”
Warner Bros had been working on a new version of IT for many years now, but with the switch over to New Line, it will be nice to see the Horror classic being remade under the New Line umbrella. There are currently no casting details at this time.
