    Be interested to see this when it comes out, will be hard to beat Tim Curry's performance as Pennywise from the original though!

    Default Remake of Stephen King's "It"

    Pennywise Cast in New Version of Stephen King's 'It'

    Will Poulter, the actor who broke through with his comedic turn a virginal doofus in We’re the Millers, is making a dramatic turn for the evil and in negotiations to play the villain in New Line’s adaptation of Stephen King’s It.




    Cary Fukunaga is directing the two-movie adaptation which is due to go into production June. Dan Lin and Roy Lee are producing as are Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg.
    The story follows a group of teens 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.


    The plan is for the first movie to tell the kids’ story and the second movie to focus on the adults.
    With the first movie, the teens band together when one of the protagonists’ brothers disappears in the town’s local storm drains, and they begin a seach, not knowing that It is counting on exactly that.
    It is a being that commonly takes the form a clown who, when he smiles, is all killer teeth.


    The studio and producers were initially looking to cast someone older (Tim Curry played the killer clown in the 1990 TV mini-series) but then did an about-face when scheduling kept choices such as Mark Rylance out of the picture.


    Poulter has also done an about-face since his comedic turn in Millers. He appeared in YA thriller The Maze Runner but it was his work in Revenant, the forthcoming revenge drama from Alejandro Gonzalez Inaritu that stars Leonardo DiCaprio, is said to be what grabbed the attention of producers. Poulter is one of the men who leaves DiCaprio’s character for dead in Revenant, which opens January 8, 2016

    ^^

    almost always is, isnt it?

    SK adaptations usually stay pretty close to the orig though as there really isnt much to every single SK novel.

    i read the book first time when i was like 12, and just re-read it again now last year approx... i like the '90s tv-movie, it definitely wasn't scary or vicious though (again, it was a TV movie). actually quite funny!

    from what i've seen on the extended trailer for this it looks like they are following the book very closely.. also it will be TWO movies. one taking place in 1980s (instead of 1950s as the book) and one in the 2010s. i really hope they pull this one off.. together with the "Dark Tower" it could bring back some hype to making good King adaptions.

    Default It[ 2017 ]

    I thought this joint was pretty ill. I am a big fan of horror / psychological thrillers though. Opening scene was classic and should be remembered onward as one of the greatest openings of modern horror. Loool Georgie.

    My biggest concern was Pennywise but he came through heavy. Had a menacing yet hilarious vibe without being a cucklown. Looking forward to Part 2.

    Well, that one they fucked up. How anyone though making a fantasy book series spanning seven books, or about 4000 pages, into one and a half hour of film is just beyond my understanding. Such a disappointment and hardly even an adaption.


    'It' was great though and probably one of the best King adaptions to be made.

    It was aight. Not really scary or anything but I loved the 80s vibe.

    I would think chapter two will be much scarier because they will be adults.
