Stephen King’s IT is coming to the big-screen

Stephen King’s horror novel It is coming to the big-screen. Produced by Dan Lin and directed by Cary Fukunaga. 

“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.” Lin plans to split King’s novel into two movies. “The book is so epic that we couldn’t tell it all in one movie and service the characters with enough depth.” The first film will be a coming-of-age story about the children tormented by It. The second will see those same characters continue as adults. 

“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.”
