New Line Cinema has appointed Andy Muschietti as the new director of the Stephen King movie It (2016). Muschietti recently brought us Mama (2013) which was well received, Guillermo del Toro was the producer. The deal between New Line Cinema and Muschietti are still awaiting the final closing. When the deal is sealed, a new writer will be hired to bring Muschietti’s vision to the screen. We may still see a 2016 release date but it is also uncertain if Will Poulter will still be onboard to play Pennywise the clown. Fans will be happy that the film is still scheduled to take place over two films.
