Scared of Clowns? Fan of Stephen King? If you said yes to both then this will be bad and good news for you. First Showing have the news on the remake.

Inspired by the success of the Friday the 13th reboot, Warner Brothers has decided to remake Stephen King’s It for the big screen. The 1990 version of It (that was actually made for TV) has often been referred to as one of the scariest movie of all-time. Lin Pictures and Vertigo Entertainment are developing this new version as a fresh adaptation from Stephen King’s original novel. Dave Kajganich, of The Invasion and Creek as well as the upcoming Pet Sematary remake, will write the script. These rights have been floating around Hollywood for a while, but it was Warner Brothers who decided to finally give it another chance.

First published in 1986, Stephen King’s It follows a group of kids called the Losers Club that encounter a creature called It, which preys on children and whose favorite form is that of a sadistic clown called Pennywise (played by Tim Curry in the original). When the creature resurfaces, the kids are called upon to regroup again, this time as adults, even though they have no memory of the first battle. While the novel was set in 1958 and 1985, this remake will be set in the present day.

Tim Curry was fantastic as Pennywise the clown in the original version. Who on Earth could play him from the current crop of actors?

As for the picture on this post I found it here by Swethambari Seshadri.
