Remaking 'It'

As if I didn't lose enough sleep after I saw the (very awful) first one!   Stephen King's 'It' is getting remade into a new movie...there goes another ten years of peaceful sleep.   I read the book when I was 11 or 12, and basically had to sleep in the living room with every inch of me covered by a blanket for a year (if any part of yousticks out he can get in!).   It was made worse when I saw The Rocketeer and somehow the two goons who kill the guy in the casts in the hospital bed were scarier than Pennywise and a new terror manifested for me- couldn't touch the floor once it was dark (or they'd grab you) and there was always a risk the guy hiding under your bed would pierce you through the mattress with his sword.   When I later saw the movie version of 'It' I was already so traumatized that I didn't actually watch the whole thing until a few years ago.   And everyone wonders why I'm such an insomniac????

Here's what Perez posted- I don't know if I'd be able to watch a remake, the BOOK freaked me out as it was!



We can't imagine anything will terrify us as much as the original miniseries, but you never know!
Stephen King's classic book, It, has already been adapted for the small screen, and now it's getting the film treatment!
Warner Brothers has commissioned screenwriter David Kajganich to adapt the story into one film, and he recently discussed his process of translating such a detailed, long book into a single movie:
He reveals:
"In all of my talks with the studio, it has only ever been discussed as a single feature film. The book's length is clearly more suited to a mini-series and I understand very well why they went that route the last time around, but I think the book's content is really more appropriate for cinema. I told the studio from the beginning that I felt I needed to be able to write for an R rating, since I wanted to be as candid as the novel about the terrible things the characters go through as kids. They agreed and off I went. I think the biggest difference is that we're working with about two-thirds the onscreen time they had for the miniseries. That sounds dire, I know, but it doesn't necessarily mean two-thirds the amount of story. I'm finding as many ways as I can to make certain scenes redundant by deepening and doubling others. To me, this is an interesting process because it has the effect of thematically intensifying the whole, but it can lead to dramatic surprises. Certain scenes I thought would be crucial to the coherence of the whole ended up cut, while other scenes, which were somewhat cursory in the book, ended up being pivotal in the script."
Inneresting!
We wonder if he's all talk, or he'll actually be able to make it work!
Either way, that awful Pennywise the Clown will surely scare us shitless once again! That monster is FUCKED.
What do U think?? Are U interested in another It movie??
