New Adaptation of Stephen King's 'It' Has Moved Over to New Line
It's been over five years since we heard Warner Bros. was working on a new adaptation of Stephen King's clown horror novel It, and the most recent development had director Cary Fukunaga adapting the creepy story of Pennywise the clown into two films. Now there's been a slight change of pace because THR reports It will now be heading over to New Line Cinema, which isn't a big deal because it's a division of Warner Bros. anyway, but the studio is just getting a little more picky about the films that they produce. That's not to say this is a sub-par project, but New Line Cinema is better geared towards genre movies now. Read on!
The original story 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. One film will focus on the children's portion of the story, while another will follow them as adults. Fukunaga is now coming off a truckload of praise for "True Detective" and the though of him bringing that style to Stephen King's It gives me the chills. Here's hoping New Line gets the project off the ground soon to follow their success with The Conjuring. Sound good?
