'It' May Be Dead Now That Director Cary Fukunaga Has Walked

May 26, 2015


Like so many of our birthday parties, New Line's It remake has fallen apart after an argument about how much a clown should cost. According to various reports, True Detective director Cary Fukunaga this weekend departed the project after he and the studio were unable to agree on a budget for the two-part Stephen King adaptation.

Though Will Poulter was already signed on to play the evil Pennywise and shooting was set to begin in less than a month, It is now delayed indefinitely. Stephen King himself added, "The remake of IT may be dead--or undead--but we'll always have Tim Curry. He's still floating down in the sewers of Derry." Just like Harry Anderson's Wet Wipes.
