Stephen King's It to Be Split into Two Films

By June 11, 2012

A big-screen adaptation of the 1986 Stephen King novel It has been in the works for a while, but now the plan has been pluralized, with the story being split into two films -- a logical step, given the book is over 1,000 pages long. Acclaimed director Cary Fukunaga (Jane Eyre, Sin Nombre) will co-write and direct both movies, but like the long-gestating adaptation of The Stand, there's no scheduled release date yet. The fact that Warner Brothers is willing to make a multi-pic commitment to horror project is noteworthy -- and perhaps an indication that it will entail a budget significantly higher than the average studio genre film. *Fingers crossed.*
