There is no way you’re a 90’s kid and haven’t haunted by Stephen King’s television thriller, It
. As it seems, that frightful clown of your childhood nightmares is coming back, with a new adaptation
of the classic horror film for theaters being actually in the works.
Producer Dan Lin not only confirmed plans for an upcoming adaptation of It
, but also revealed that True Detective
's very own director, Cary Fukunaga, was on board. In addition to that, he also stated that the television movie was too big to adapt in just one film, but big enough for them to try separating it in two parts. Even though the director has only signed for the first one, he is eyed for the second one as well and will most likely end up with a deal for it.
Expected to begin production in this coming March, the team behind the project is looking to start shooting in summer. According to Lin, original It creator, Stephen King, has already read the script of the remake and totally approves of it. Now all that’s left for the team is to find someone suitable to play Pennywise the Clown and our childhood fears will once again return in place.
