Cary Fukunaga Drops New Line Cinemas Stephen Kings IT!?

Stephen King‘s IT adaptation has hit a major snag with Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) leaving the director’s chair causing major delays in principal photography. It was reported that Fukunaga felt creatively compromised and with the filming starting in mid-June 2015, he jumped ship. The new IT movie has been delayed until further notice.  Warner Bros. subsidiary New Line Cinema wanted to cut the budget down to 1 movie and cut the budget down from a pre-approved $30 million. Ben Mendelsohn was also originally sought out to star as Pennywise the Clown but passed on the role because of a pay cut; this led to Will Poulter being sought next as Pennywise the Clown. Not too sure if Poulter will stick around also. We also included a tweet from Stephen King. Long live Tim Curry as Pennywise the Clown!

Stephen King Tweeted the following about the IT Remake
