Warner Bros. Pictures
Release date: September 8, 2017

The first adaptation of Stephen King‘s novel It was a 1990 mini-series starring Tim Curry as the child-eating monster. The ambitious project from director Tommy Lee Wallace tried in vain to fit all 1,100 pages of King’s epic novel into two 2-hour blocks and the results were a mixed bag. The first half is nearly universally beloved thanks to some great child acting and Curry chewing the scenery and stealing nights of sleep as Pennywise the Dancing Clown. The second half focuses on the adults 27 years later returning to stop the evil again and it falters heavily from cheesy overacting and a universally “be-loathed” giant spider ending.

Coincidentally, it’s 27 year later, and Mama director Andy Muschietti took what worked back in 1990 and focused an entire film on it with Stephen King’s IT.

Stephen King’s ‘It’ Movie Casts New Pennywise

Pennywise in Stephen King's It

It’s been just a little over one year since True Detective season one and Beasts of No Nation director Cary Fukunaga walked away from the movie adaptation of Stephen King‘s It, which he had been developing for multiple years and fans seemed extremely excited about, for reasons that made the departure all the more painful.

When this happened it sounded like the movie might be dead, but then just a couple of short months later New Line hired Mama director Andy Muschietti to replace Fukunaga and all was on track again. When Muschietti was hired it was unclear if Will Poulter, who had been cast just before Fukunaga’s exit, would still be playing Pennywise. As it turns out, no, he isn’t. A new actor has now been cast in the role made famous by Tim Curry’s terrifying performance in the two-part TV movie adaptation in 1990.
