Stephen King's It Movie Header

Stephen King’s IT
Directed by Andy Muschietti
Written by Chase Palmer, Cary Fukunaga, and Gary Dauberman
Starring Bill Skarsgård, Jaeden Lieberher, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, Nicholas Hamilton, Jackson Robert Scott
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.

True Detective

It’s been three years, believe it or not, since True Detective arrived on HBO to massive critical praise. It’s actually already been two years since the not so well-received second season ended.

A third season was a large question mark for a long while now. Back at the beginning of the year, HBO president of programming Casey Bloys said ideas were being exchanged but they weren’t rushing things. Now comes word that season three is officially happening, and some details have been shared.

More on the new season’s story and who’s involved below.

Stephen King’s ‘It’ Movie: Cary Fukunaga Elaborates On Why He Left, and You Will Not Like It

Pennywise in Stephen King's It

A couple of months ago Cary Fukunaga spoke for the first time about why he departed a planned two-movie adaptation of Stephen King‘s horror novel It after dedicating three years of his life to developing it. An adaptation that fans of the book were very excited about—rare for something with a popular existing adaptation—after seeing Fukunaga’s work directing the first season of HBO’s True Detective.

At the time Fukunaga didn’t reveal much, only that he and New Line Cinema did not see eye to eye on what kind of movie they wanted it to be. But now the director has spoken on the subject once again, offering a much more detailed account of what went down, and those who were devastated to see him depart the project (movie fans, to be more specific) will not be happy to read what they’re about to read.

Pennywise in Stephen King's It

It was a sad, sad day when we found out that True Detective season one director Cary Fukunaga had decided to walk away from the two-part movie adaptation of Stephen King’s horror tome It after a dispute with New Line Cinema on the direction of the project. He had been working on development for about three years.

Now Fukunaga has finally shared his thoughts on the departure. But don’t continue below expecting to see an angry, frustrated rant aimed toward New Line. No matter how infuriated the director was by the way things played out, he took the high road when talking about what happened. At least this time.
