Pennywise Floats Again: Stephen King's "It" Coming to Big Screen
The television miniseries adaptation of Stephen King's It is one of the formative experiences of my horror fandom. Actually, it terrified my eight-year-old self so badly, it nearly prevented me from becoming a horror fan. That's neither here nor there. So when I read (over at The Hollywood Reporter) that Warner Bros. and Vertigo Entertainment are developing a new feature-length adaptation of It for theaters, my interest is piqued. I made my peace with Pennywise several years ago and I look forward to seeing how a new creative team will handle King's ridiculously long (1000+ pages) novel. One member of that team that's already signed on is screenwriter Dave Kajganich (The Invasion), who is apparently also writing the Pet Sematary remake for Paramount.
And remember, we all float down here.
