The Darkside of the Moon (England really)
You serious?
Gntlgnt is never serious :) ms mod is though. It's been in the pipeline for while now, and last I heard was going to be a proper film, so even shorter than the mini series which left out so much to start with. One other thing being RUMOURED is that they were toying with the idea of the first part being the 80s and the 2nd being modern times (20teens).

Last i heard about this film it was being split into two volumes... not sure what everyone thinks about this but it does mean that it should be longer than the mini-series and can therefore fit more of the novel into its narrative. The director is the guy who was responsible for True Detective which i heard was a pretty good show.

The way they intend to split it, one volume about the kids, another about the adults, is realistically the only logical way to make it and cover all the ground.

I'll love seeing them dance around the scene in the sewer..... If you've read it, you know what I mean. No major studio will ever let that one through.

The Elephant in the room is how their gonna top Tim Curry as "Pennywise". Whether you liked the mini-series or not, his portrayal of that character is Iconic.

There is just no way to top Curry. In a (IMHO) crap movie, he was a shining star. I use a Pennywise avi the whole month of October on Twitter and just about everyone says it scares them to death--lol.

I dunno.....Michael Keaton or Kevin Kline could do a great Pennywise, as could Cumberbatch or even our old vile, slimy, rotten friend Doug Hutchison.

I never even considered Kevin Kline! He'd be marvelous. I'm tired of Cabbagepatch's squinty face--lol. I have a 15 YO who is obsessed with him

I'm not sure I'd ever get enough of "Cabbagepatch". :) He's so fluid in everything I've seen him do - did you catch him in Warhorse? He was really wonderful in that.

But Pennywise isn't just about menacing stuff....there needs to be that weird element of comical to him. If Robin Williams went threatening, he could pull it off, too. Dang, even Whoopi Goldberg could probably pull it off, too. (No law says Pennywise must be a man.)

He is really good in every thing which I've seen. He was very funny in Rory O'Shea was Here, and creepy and menacing in Atonement, particularly. Just overexposed, I think. Robin Williams could be VERY good, if he could be reined in. Have you seen him in One Hour Photo or even Insomnia? He was creepy as heck in both of those.

One Hour Photo is an extremely creepy and disturbing movie. My kids throw this in my face constantly. Long story, but it was Robin Williams--hey, how bad could it be? Come to find out, Very bad.
