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.
