Stephen King’s ‘It’ Movie Finds A New Director

Pennywise in Stephen King's It

The two-part movie adaptation of Stephen King‘s It has found itself a new director.

The adaptation was being developed by Cary Fukunaga, the director of season one of HBO’s True Detective, for multiple years, and fans of It and the director’s work were all pretty excited. Then it all went to Hollywood Hell a couple of months back—because why should we get things that we want—when we found out that Fukunaga had reached his breaking point and departed the project after clashing swords with New Line Cinema, who had been passed the project from big sister studio Warner Brothers, over demands that the budget be cut.

At the time It was delayed indefinitely, and because of the Poltergeist remake‘s poor performance it was unclear if the movie would happen at all. With the hiring of a new director, it appears the plan is to still make this thing happen. So who did New Line choose to replace Fukunaga as the director of this movie based on King’s massive story about a group of kids (and eventual adults) dealing with fear incarnate?

Pennywise in Stephen King's It

The terrifying being known simply as “It” from Stephen King’s It, which has haunted most people’s childhood in its most familiar form, Pennywise the Clown (played memorably by Tim Curry in the 1990 TV miniseries adaptation), has been cast for the upcoming new movie adaptation of the book…and it is without a doubt an actor far, far away from the actors you were thinking might be cast.

It’s being reported that Will Poulter, the 22-year-old British actor best known for his roles in the comedy We’re the Millers and The Maze Runner, is in negotiations to play Pennywise.

Leonardo DiCaprio stars in Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s The Revenant. The film is based on the true story of Hugh Glass, an American fur trapper left for dead after a grizzly bear attack who is then robbed by a group of men. Fortunate to survive, Glass gathers his strength to enact his revenge on the people who left him for dead.

If you thought Iñárritu’s Birdman pushed the boundaries of filmmaking, then you will have to hit the jump to see what he is doing for The Revenant, and check out some of the new images from the film.

SDCC 2014: Check Out Our Massive Comic-Con Panel Photo Gallery

sdcc panel photos

While we were in San Diego covering Comic-Con, our hearty team of weather-worn GoDs cranked out more than 60 articles. We were given a personal tour of Crimson Peak by director Guillermo del Toro. We piloted a virtual Jaeger from Pacific Rim. We covered four straight days of film and television panels in Hall H. We published tons of really great comic book news, casting announcements, all manner of awesome reveals, and so much more!

I took so many photos during the Hall H panels I attended at SDCC, that I’ve been updating our panel coverage articles with galleries since Sunday afternoon. And I’ve only now just finished processing my final lot of panel photos.

Below are nearly 400 additional panel photos that were taken over the course of my four days in Hall H, including Kingsman: The Secret Service with Colin Firth; the EW Women Who Kick Ass panel; The Maze Runner, the newest film in the Hitman franchise Agent 47; Michael Mann’s Blackhat with Chris Helmsworth; Let’s Be Cops; the newest stop-motion masterpiece from Laika, The Box Trolls; Paris-sewer found-footage horror, As Above So Below; Salma Hayek’s ‘The Raid,’ Everly; and an animated film that was completely off my radar pre-SDCC, but which I am now extremely looking forward to, The Book of Life.

Movie Review: We’re The Millers

We're the Millers PosterWe’re the Millers
Director: Rawson Marshall Thurber
Screenwriters: Bob Fisher, Steve Faber, Sean Anders, John Morris
Cast: Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, Emma Roberts, Will Poulter, Ed Helms, Nick Offerman, Kathryn Hahn
Warner Bros. | New Line Cinema
Rated R | 110 Minutes
Release Date: August 7, 2013

Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story), We’re the Millers stars Saturday Night Live alum Jason Sudeikis as David Clark, Denver’s #1 dope dealer whose entire stash has been stolen by thugs with great bone structure.

David is recruited by well-to-do pompous asshole Brad Gurdlinger (Ed Helms, The Hangover Part III) to pick up a Winnebago full of marijuana (enough to kill Willy Nelson) from Mexico, for which he’ll be rewarded handsomely.

Realizing that one man attempting to get through customs with an weed-filled RV all by himself is too suspicious, he hires a stripper (Jennifer Aniston) and two teenagers, a homeless goth girl (Emma Roberts) and an awkward virgin (Will Poulter), to play an all-American family – the Millers – so as to not arouse suspicion while crossing the border.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
Directed by Michael Apted
Starring Ben Barnes, Skandar Keynes, and Georgie Henley
Fox 2000 Pictures and Walden Media
Release Date: December 10, 2010

With the holidays quickly approaching, what better way to spend a night with the family than by going out and catching a movie. This weekend marks for right now, the final release in the Narnia series with The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Out of these three movies, the second one is the only one without a December release date. I have never read the books, but I have always been fascinated with the concept of these tales of faraway lands filled with both mythical and mystical creatures, and the variety of everything else as well. It makes me wonder the differences between the books and the movies. (Maybe one day I will get around to reading them, there is seven total).

This movie begins with us seeing Britain enlisting men for World War II, and Edmund (Skandar Keynes) wanting to enlist. His younger sister Lucy (Georgie Henley) finds him and gets him out of there so they can head home.

The first trailer for The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader has been released online by 20th Century Fox on the film’s official website.

Voyage of the Dawn Treader is the third chapter in the franchise, and the first since Fox took over. In December of 2008, we found out that The Walt Disney Company had decided not to continue backing the films after the sequel, Prince Caspian, had a major drop at the box office. A month later it was revealed that Fox would be picking it up and continuing on in hopes that this new movie might regain the popularity of the first.

Continue on over to the other side to check out the first trailer for Voyage of the Dawn Treader!

DVD Review: ‘Son of Rambow’

Son of RambowSon of Rambow
Directed by Garth Jennings
Starring Will Poulter, Bill Milner
Paramount Home Entertainment
Release date: August 26, 2008

I don’t know where this stuff starts. For months I had heard about this movie, the darling of the festival circuit, and had been interested in its premise. Two British lads inspired by a bootlegged copy of the movie Rambo: First Blood set out to make their own version of the film to try and win a young filmmaker competition. Sounds promising but there’s only one small problem: It was boring as hell.

I sat down to watch Son of Rambow one evening and fell asleep halfway through it. I woke up a couple hours later and finished it. Feeling I didn’t give it a fair shake, I waited until the next day and re-watched it in its entirety. What conclusions did I draw the second time around? That I was right the first time.

I know it’s supposed to be cute and endearing to watch kids do things usually reserved for adults but I just didn’t care about these kids or their actions. You’ve got your basic buddy story setup. Lee Carter (Will Poulter), the most misbehaved kid in school, bullies classmate Will Proudfoot (Bill Milner) into hanging out with him. Wouldn’t you know, along the way they grow into actual friends. Neither kid seems to have any real guidance around him at home.
