Producer Dan Lin (The Lego Movie) revealed that they are moving forward with a big budget Stephen King’s IT Reboot to start shooting Summer 2015. That is right, big budget. Production will begin with Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) to head the production team. New Line Cinema signed Fukunaga for only the first part of the two part films. The 1986 horror novel book is 1100 pages of material so it will be difficult to do it full justice but I am hoping that they adapt this new Stephen King film well. Are you excited, I wonder who will play Pennywise the Clown. Tim Curry did such an awesome job with that character.
"The idea is to start official prep in March for a summer shoot," said Lin. "Cary likes to develop things for a while, and we’ve been with this for about three or four years, so we’re super excited that he stayed with it. You guys are gonna be really excited."
"The book is so epic that we couldn’t tell it all in one movie and service the characters with enough depth," explained Lin.
"The most important thing is that Stephen King gave us his blessing," said Lin. "We didn’t want to make this unless he felt it was the right way to go, and when we sent him the script, the response that Cary got back was, ‘Go with God, please! This is the version the studio should make.’ So that was really gratifying."
