For me it's more about Tim curry as Pennywise- his face will forever be a source of nightmares. A different looking Pennywise just wouldn't be the same. Kind of like the nightmare on elm street remake...like Robert Englund IS Freddy, period, no questions!

I'm looking forward to this. Get to see on big screen. I pray it is cast right an not have wrong actors in roles. And I heard it will be split into 2 parts. 1st half them as kids and 2n as adults.

Even though I was not a HUGE fan of the original TV miniseries (the format most of all) i am even less of a fan than remakes. However, I like the idea (as it should have been in the first place) of two movies instead of a lame TV movie.

Well it's IMDB now (if that means anything) and last I heard it was due out sometime next year. I'm guessing maybe around Halloween. Creepy clowns seem to be all the rage right now so the timing is perfect for it (no pun intended) to come back. Not to mention if it comes out in Nov of 15 it will be almost exactly 25 years since the mini-series came out (11 Nov 1990). Just saying.

This was my favorite. I watched the 2 part movie on television when it premiered and taped it on our family vcr, I recorded over something important like someone's wedding or something. I had just recently read the book. Then in the 5th grade, I would skip school and stay home and listen to Otis Redding Dock of The Bay and watch the mini series IT. ALL DAY.

A few years ago, I read something about a potential WB remake set in the 80's, I was really open to that idea and was excited about watching it if it happened to come true. The 50's and the 80's had a lot in common, very conservative post war times.

I grew up in the 80's reading writers who grew up in the 50's, and so the 80's feel very natural to me.

Either way if it gets made I'm in.

I recorded "It" just recently on my DVR and it was four hours long (must be lots of commercials). One of these days I will sit down to watch it. I did read the book a couple of years ago and it was really quite good - not sure how I missed it when it first came out :confused:

You didn't miss a lot, Neese, EXCEPT for Tim Curry's Pennywise. He carried the movie, and was one of the creepiest things I've ever seen. He nailed that character. I just read something interesting about that/him: that is a role that he's discussed only once--he's apparently a method actor, and stayed in character all the time during filming (!). Not only did the other actors hate him, but he thoroughly disliked himself--said that was a character that he couldn't stand and didn't want to think about again. Can YOU imagine being in Pennywise's brain for weeks on end?! *shudder*

I saw online today that a two part movie is being made and the first with some guy from a detective program? But I don't see anything about it here. Color me wrong?

An article was actually published recently stating that the director of True Detective Cary Fukanaga (sp) will direct the first film of the two which will be all about the kids story. They will start production this summer!!!! Very excited.
