Do we want it to, though?
That being said, here's the news: It is going to be a major motion picture. Here we go, right? If you could see me right now, I'm rolling my eyes. Anyone else with me here? Do you remember the horrible It miniseries from ages ago? Ugh.Here's what's going on: The Stephen King It movie adaptation is actually going to be two movies, not one. That certainly makes sense, if you think about it, because It is seriously long. I'm not sure where they'll break up the story, but I have suspicions. Cary Fukunaga (Jane Eyre) is set to direct and co-write the script. I hope they don't screw this up.
I'm just not seeing Pennywise the evil devil clown on screen. Sure, there's CGI and all that jazz, but I prefer my overactive imagination to anything Hollywood can dream up. It is a great, classic Stephen King novel -- something inside me is screaming "Leave it alone!" Some brilliantly terrifying novels are best left in our heads, and I fear It is one of them.
Stephen King fans, what say you? Am I being too negative? Is there hope that perhaps this It movie adaptation will actually be a winner?
