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.

Captain America 3 To Feature Epic All Star Battle?

Joe Russo, one of the directors of Captain America 3, recently spoke to Cinema Blend about additional Marvel characters in the movie. We already know that the Black Widow, Falcon, Hawkeye and Nick Fury can possibly appear in a Cap movie, but Russo gets our excitement level up to a whole different level! He mentioned that team ups can also happen with characters from different studios, and – sit down – The Secret Wars is one of his favorite Marvel stories!

Listen, when I started collecting, The Secret Wars was one of the first books I ever bought, so that’s always been an obsession of mine to see something of that scale done – a crossover. I don’t know if that would ever be possible, with all the different situations at the studios. But I would love to see a lot of characters on-screen together.

The Secret Wars features members from The Avengers, The Fantastic Four, X-Men and solo heroes such as Spiderman fighting against a whole bunch of villains including Absorbing Man, Doctor Doom, Doctor Octopus, the Enchantress, Kang the Conqueror, Molecule Man, and Ultron.
The possibility that this story ever hits the screens might be unlikely, but not impossible!
