As I’m sure many of you are aware, a new big-screen adaptation of Stephen King’s IT has been talked about for quite for some time, but it has been a little silent as of late. However, that slightly changes today as we have some movement, it isn’t much, but it at least suggests the film is on the horizon.
Recently, Dan Lin, the producer of the new adaptation of IT, spoke with the guys over at Collider to deliver this brief, yet somewhat hopeful update;
Cary Fukunaga is writing and directing Stephen King’s “It” for me, and I’m really excited for that… So I’m hoping that’ll be his next movie after the indie he’s shooting in Africa. So I love what he did with “True Detective.” I think it’s a great sample for Stephen King’s “It.” So I’m really excited about that.
This latest adaptation of IT will be set in the present day.
