Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
Last year the announcement was made that another adaptation of Stephen King's IT would be created, first being aligned with Warner Bros. then moving over to New Line. Then came the news that director Cary Fukunaga, who was previously set to direct, officially dropped out of the planned two film project leaving the future of the IT remake in question.
That is now changing as producers of the IT project Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg are currently in negotiations with director Andy Muschietti (MAMA) steer the ship.
Fukunaga had previously cast actor Will Poulter to take on the role of Pennywise the clown. Now that things have changed, it is unknown if Poulter will return to the project.
The book was previously adapted by Tommy Lee Wallace as a 1990 two part, three hour event miniseries on ABC, starring Tim Curry as Pennywise.
Synopsis for IT:
"It’s a small city, a place as hauntingly familiar as your own hometown. Only in Derry the haunting is real… They were seven teenagers when they first stumbled upon the horror. Now they are grown-up men and women who have gone out into the big world to gain success and happiness. But none of them can withstand the force that has drawn them back to Derry to face the nightmare without an end, and the evil without a name."
