NEWS: IT is sinking
A film production of Stephen King's epic novel, IT
-- True scares
-- Big budget
-- Tight editing
-- Not television!
. . . is it too good to be true? Maybe.
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that New Line Cinema has indefinitely cut production on IT. EW says that director Cary Fukunaga reps say that he has left the project.
I've grown leery of remakes in recent days. In fact, I opted not to see Poltergeist this weekend because reviews were -- it's just not scary. Bu IT wasn't just another remake; it truly was a re envisioning of the Novel. The previous work had been for television; a worthy effort, but Pennywise has always belonged more on the big screen.
So of all the Stephen King projects that I was really excited about coming to the big screen, I was excited about this one. And the Dark Tower. While the novel is slowly dating itself, the movie promised to bring an update to the story.
