Stephen King’s IT Split Into Two Movies, Production Starting in Summer 2015

It’s about time, Stephen King’s masterpiece „IT“ is getting a proper Hollywood treatment! According to Vulture, who have spoken with producer Dan Lin, Cary Fukunaga will direct the adaption of the story about the evil clown Pennywise into two movies. Part 1 will tell the story of the „Loser’s Club“ in the 1950s when the friends struggled with coming of age while they were tormented by Pennywise. Part 2 will feature the „Loser’s Club’s“ fight against the evil clown in the 1980s: “The book is so epic that we couldn’t tell it all in one movie and service the characters with enough depth,“Lin explained. He also mentioned that Stephen King himself gave the project his blessing: „…the response that Cary got back was, ‘Go with God, please! This is the version the studio should make.’“.

IT is one of Stephen King’s best novels, but extremely hard to adapt because the story is narrated in historical fragments, with the main plot being seperated into two storylines. Splitting the adaption into several movies destroys Stephen King’s original narrative technique, but is still the best solution.
