Everything We Know About the Remake of Stephen King's Horror Masterpiece It
More than seven years after first announcing plans to revive Stephen King's It, production on the remake finally seems to have gotten underway. The literary horror classic — about an ancient evil entity that most often takes the form of a demented, evil clown — has already locked down a director, a far-off premiere date, and a star. By the time the new adaptation hits cinemas, nearly 27 years will have passed since the novel first came to life in the form of an ABC special — which, coincidentally, is almost exactly how long Pennywise the Clown lies dormant in the novel before rising again to a new reign of terror. With It looming ominously in our cinematic future, it's high time we unearth exactly what you're in for.
