Looks as if Stephen King is as popular as ever. Two of his stories – Carrie and The Ten O’Clock People – are both heading to the big screen next year and The Stand the The Dark Tower are projects still in some form of development.
And that is not all. The Hollywood Reporter brings news that Warner Bros. will bring King’s novel IT to the big screen in a two-part series.
The new adaptation (it was developed into a television miniseries in the early 1990’s), will be directed by Cary Fukunaga (Sin Nombre).
IT has the following synopsis taken from Stephen King’s official website:
A promise made twenty-eight years ago calls seven adults to reunite in Derry, Maine, where as teenagers they battled an evil creature that preyed on the city's children. Unsure that their Losers Club had vanquished the creature all those years ago, the seven had vowed to return to Derry if IT should ever reappear. Now, children are being murdered again and their repressed memories of that summer return as they prepare to do battle with the monster lurking in Derry's sewers once more.
