Stephen King's 'It' to be made into Two Films
It's been 22 years since Pennywise the Dancing Clown scared the
bejesus out of us in the TV miniseries based on Stephen King's novel It.
Well prepare for more circus-based fear as the novel is going to be made into not one, but two movies, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Hollywood Reporter says (and these may be spoilers so be
warned) that the story follows a group of kids called the Losers Club
that encounter a creature called 'It' in the 1950s, which preys on
children (movie one?). When the creature resurfaces in the 80s, the kids
are called upon to regroup again, this time as adults (movie two?) even
though they have no memory of the first battle.
The book was previously adapted in 1990 as an ABC miniseries that
starred John Ritter, Harry Anderson, Tim Reid, Annette O'Toole, Richard
Thomas and Tim Curry as Pennywise. Warners picked up the rights in 2009
and originally intended to adapt it into a single movie.
