Cary Fukunaga Spills Beans On 'It' Exit | Cary Fukunaga

You are probably aware by now that New Line has been working on a remake of Stephen King’s iconic It. Cary Fukunaga had joined the project in order to direct a two-part film, to only announce his departure shortly after, so it’s now time for him to reveal what went down. Only days before shooting for the It remake was expected to kick off, fans were shocked by the announcement of the True Detective director’s exit from the project. At the time, arguements over budget and casting were thought to be the reasons behind his decision. Cary Fukunaga explained the situation in a recent interview though, so here’s what went down in his own words:
It’s never easy. Chase [Palmer] and I had been working on that script for probably three years. There was a lot of our childhood and our experience in it. Ultimately, we and New Line have to agree on the kind of movie we want to make, and we just wanted to make different movies. It’s like a relationship: you can try to make the other person who you want them to be, but it’s impossible really to change. You just have to work.
Despite the director’s exit, New Line is determined to go ahead with the project and has already hired Andy Muschietti to replace Cary Fukunaga. Even though the choice was wise, it would have been a real pleasure to experience the latter’s view of the classic.
