Stephen King's 'It' Remake Has a New Director

July 16, 2015


Not heeding the lessons put forth by this season of True Detective, New Line is going to try to move forward with a reboot project Cary Fukunaga walked away from. THR reports that the studio has found a new director to take on It, their two-part planned adaptation of the Stephen King novel of the same name. That director? Andy Muschietti, who was behind the fairly effective sleeper hit Mama. It's said that a new writer is coming on to realize Muschietti's vision, and as of yet, it's not clear whether Will Poulter will stay on to play the clown villain Pennywise. It's also not clear how this will effect The Jaunt, the other Stephen King tale Muschietti was signed on to direct. One thing that is clear? Fanged clowns sure are freaky, huh?
