Few weeks ago, we brought you the news that Stephen King’s “It” is in the process of getting a makeover for cinematic release.
While news have been sparse since, Director Cary Fukunaga, who made a name for himself as the director for hit TV show True Detective, recently sat down to give some insight to the fans about the project.
Not only is he in the middle of writing the script, but it seems, Fukunaga’s version will have two parts as well. He stated: “I am in the midst of rewriting the first script now. We’re not working on the second part yet. The first script is just about the kids. It’s more like Goonies meets a horror film.”
He continued to reveal that the ending will be different than the tv version one. “There will be no spider at the end of our movie. We’re definitely honoring the spirit of Stephen King, but the horror has to be modernized to make it relevant. That’s my job, right now, on this pass. I’m working on making the horror more about suspense than visualization of any creatures. I just don’t think that’s scary. What could be there, and the sounds and how it interacts with things, is scarier than actual monsters.”
No release date is set yet, but keep checking back for further news.
