MAMA Director in Talks to Helm IT Remake

With Cary Fukunaga having departed the upcoming redo of Stephen King’s It, it appears that the two-part adaptation could be close to landing itself a new director.

The Hollywood Reporter has word that Mama’s Andy Muschietti is in talks to helm the project, which will see King’s famed It novel adapted in to two movies. Additionally, the script for the film is already apparently being tweaked to suit Muschietti, meaning that the director is seemingly very close to signing on for the gig.

Despite currently being without a director, this new version of It does have itself a Pennywise, with Will Poulter having landed that role. Plot-wise, the story of It centres on a group of kids who are tormented by a magical clown-like child-killer. The group returns as adults in later life to face their fears once more and put an end to Pennywise for good.

There’s no definitive release date for It at this stage, although it’s believed that the two-parter could hit screens in January and September of next year if all goes to plan.

As ever, expect more on this as it develops.
