Previously planned to be a Warner Bros. production, we’ve just gotten word that the long-awaited re-adaptation of Stephen King’s classic story It is headed to a new home, and we’ve got all the latest for ya today. So quit clownin’ around and read on!
THR reports that It is shifting to Warner’s New Line division, as the studio siblings are drawing clearer distinctions about the types of movies they make. From this point forward, it seems, all Warner Bros. horror films will be made and released under the New Line banner, which has long been referred to as ‘The House that Freddy Built,’ due to the Nightmare on Elm Street films putting it on the map.
Cary Fukunaga (“True Detective”) will write and direct the film, which will actually be split into two parts. As of now, the plan is for the first movie to tell the kids’ story and the second movie to focus on the adults.
More as it comes.
