UPDATE as of June 2nd, 2016 *CASTING NEWS*:  Tim Curry brought the evil Pennywise clown character to life in the T.V. adaptation of Stephen King’s IT novel. Now sources have stated that Stephen King’s It – 2-part big screen Remake, to be directed by Andy Muschietti, may have found it’s new “Pennywise dancing clown.” Actor Bill Skarsgard(Hemlock Grove) is said to be in final negotiations to play Pennywise, the evil monster disguised as a clown set out to lure children to a possibly horrible demise. New Line wanted to take the dark character in a slightly different direction while keeping true to the novel storyline itself. The different route they wanted to take is to make the Pennywise character a little younger. I absolutely am on board and excited! Thoughts, fans?

UPDATE as of JULY 16th, 2015:  Don’t count “IT” out completely yet. When Cary Fukunaga parted from the film remake, the project was shelved. Now it seems that the studio is on the hunt for a replacement director and has their sights currently on director Andy Muschietti who directed the horror film “Mama.”  If he signs on as the new director, a new writer and script will be the next goal. Actor Will Poulter is no longer officially tied to the film but could possibly return if all factors align and if he’s available. The “IT” remake is expected to be filmed in two-parts as a theatrical release. As more updates come up, check back here for the latest news! 


UPDATE as of JUNE 2nd, 2015:  What a way to deflate the fans excitement. I’m completely disappointed to share this update on the “IT” remake. The latest news shared by sources is that the film has been officially shelved a.k.a cancelled! It looks like we won’t be seeing an updated version of the gruesome and evil monster that disguised himself as a clown known as “Pennywise the dancing clown” in order to lure children to their demise. The story is based on the novel “IT” by horror writer favorite Stephen King and has been one of the scariest stories out there that continues to horrify readers. If any new updates emerge (fingers crossed for them to change their minds) check back here. I’ll definitely keep you updated on anything changes! Till then, here is a glimpse of “what could/should have been”: (Artwork ideas that were pitched for Pennywise – from Director and screenwriter Vincenzo Natali )

UPDATE as of April 2015:  According to a few sources, Stephen King’s It – Remake will possibly begin filming this summer. Right now everything is in pre-production mode. More updates to come! Who is excited?

UPDATE as of May 21st, 2014:  The theatrical-adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘IT’ has had a recent change of studio today.  ‘IT’ has moved from Warner Bros. to New Line Cinema. Cary Fukunaga is still on board as the director according to sources despite claims that stated otherwise. We will continue to bring any updates as they are received.


The novel ‘IT’ by Stephen King and it’s 1,100 pages, is full of dark, scary and horrifying moments that dark nightmares are made of.  The questions remain:  Will the remake be made closer to the novel?  Will there be a huge, scary contrast between the television miniseries adaptation and the upcoming theatrical-film adaptation?  ‘IT’ is an awesomely-creepy story and most fans may feel that, if done correctly, it could have the potential to revive and breath new life to the world of horror films.  Only time will tell…

Stephen King’s ‘IT’ was made into a two-part television movie that aired in November of 1990.  The television miniseries had high ratings and has since become a fan-favorite in the horror-movie world, thanks to an evil ‘clown’ by the name of Pennywise.  Tim Curry received critical acclaim on his performance as Pennywise, the evil being disguised as a clown, causing horror, nightmares and death to his victims in a small town called Derry.  The ABC miniseries also starred Jonathan Brandis, Brandon Crane, Emily Perkins, Adam Faraizl, Seth Green, Marlon Taylor, Ben Heller and Jarred Blancard as the young characters. Also, John Ritter, Harry Anderson, Tim Reid, Annette O’Toole, Richard Thomas, Dennis Christopher, Richard Masur as the adult-version of the characters.

The Million-Dollar Question: Who would you like to see Cast for the film?

IT remake 2

The Plot for ‘IT’:

In the Town of Derry, Maine the local children are disappearing one by one, leaving behind discarded, mutilated body parts/remains.  Soon afterwards, in a place known as ‘The Barrens’, a group of seven kids, known as ‘The Losers Club’, are united by their horrifying and strange encounters with a sadistic, wisecracking clown called Pennywise. They all seem to share the same kind of eerie experiences with this evil clown. One of the kids, Bill Denborough, has a more personal vendetta with Pennywise the clown.  Thirty years after their last encounter together with Pennywise, ‘The Losers Club’ has regrouped, leaving behind their adult lives they’ve lived successfully, after being contacted by the only member of ‘The Losers Club’ who stayed in Derry, Mike Hanlon.  He has let them all know that IT has returned, and kids are disappearing again.  The only problem is that they have all forgotten what occurred that summer.  But through a blood oath, they return.  It’s up to The Lucky Seven(formerly The Losers Club) to regain their memories, to think of the key to killing Pennywise, and end his tyranny but to also realize what brought them together in the first place.
