Director Cary Fukunaga is set to direct the new Stephen King’s IT starring our favorite scary clown Pennywise. The horror film is still very much in development and still being fleshed out but the latest news is that Warner Bros. will relocate the film to the New Line division. New Line Cinema will be the horror focused division, they started way back with the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise.
In the Town of Derry, the local kids are disappearing one by one, leaving behind torn body parts/remains. Soon afterwards, in a place known as ‘The Barrens’, a group of seven kids are united by their horrifying and strange encounters with a clown called Pennywise, which they all share, but one kid, Bill Denborough, has a more personal vendetta with the clown. 30 years after their last encounter together with Pennywise, the ‘Losers Club’ has regrouped from their successful lives and businesses by Mike Hanlon,the only member of the Losers Club that stayed in Derry, because IT has returned, and kids are disappearing again. The only problem is that they have all forgotten what occurred that summer. But through a blood oath, they return. It’s up to The Lucky Seven to regain their memories, to think of the key to killing Pennywise, and end his tyranny but to also realise what brought them together in the first place.
