    they need to focus mor on Chud, than on the silver.

    Dont think any actor would better Tm Curry's Pennywise though.
    agreed, Tim Curry was perfect in that role

    Oh absolutely! When I say the adults were inappropriately cast, I mean the Losers Club as adults. Tim Curry, as always, was fabulous!

    but they better make his trick better too. maybe make them more like the book occurences.
    and the first movie didn't really focuse on the closeness of the kids and how it was their will and *shudders* friendship helped to defeat it, as well as their belief that such things as silver bullets (or slugs) would work on the monster.

    John Ritter was pretty good, I thought.

    I'd love to see a remake. Three things that better be left in:

    1.) The entirety of the climax: the storm that hit Derry when the Losers' Club vanquished It and the presence of the Turtle from when the Losers were kids are especially important.

    2.) The twisted story of Patrick Hockstetter(sp?) and the entirety of the part when Henry deep-sixed his father. Both were the most horrifying parts of the novel for me.

    3.) Deadlights and once more for emphasis...the TURTLE!

    Leave them out and I'll just stick with the old one, say thankya. Curry and Green did great with their parts. Green especially.

    By "done right", I mean more than a vague resembelence to the book, and well acted. So many of the Loser's Club members's encounters with It in the movie were rediculous. Ben, for example. Some guy in an Air Force uniform calls out to him, and he instantly assumes it's his dead father? Wtf? And most of the others weren't any better. I think Beverly was the only one that was remotely close to being right.

    I'm with Heather19. Make it well and THOROUGHLY and split that mother into 10 hour long episodes.

    It's the best book I've ever read. Please don't subject me to a horrible piece of mediocre film making...

    And no Johnathan Brandis....makes me sad.

    I'll buy that bit of casting.

    <3 Seth Green
    I'd have to watch it in that case. I had the BIGGEST crush on Seth Green as Richie when I was a kid. (Yeah, I had a crush on the geeky red-head...).

    I would be interested to see a remake, but I do agree that it will probably be disappointing. The only Sci-Fi channel stuff I tend to like is the stuff they buy from other networks and re-air. Although I did like their version of Dune better than the original.

    the kids were the best part in the original and the only reason the film was worth watching. Maybe now the actors are all grown up they could now play the adult losers club, apart from stuttering Bill of course they would have to find a good replacment for jonathan brandis he was brilliant. I cried when i heard he had died i had a massive crush on him. Of course tim curry is till around for pennywise.

    I don't know what I think of Sci-Fi doing this, especially after having watched their movies such as "Frankenfish."

    Sci-fi Channel???? need i remind anyone of the atrocity that was The Langoliers???

    Human kind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy's first law of Equivalent Exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one and only truth.

    Is there actually any confimation to this being remade, and that scifi is behind it, because I haven't been able to find anything.

    i know this won't happen (it's a scifi film remember?) but now that he's grown up, Seth green should play the adult Richie. also they seem to be remaking Children of the Korn.

    Doesn't thrill me either. Sounds like something I'd wait to watch until it shows up somewhere on cable.

    From Dread Central via Hollywood Reporter and Variety.

    Warner Bros. isn't clowning around on the remake front as it is sending everyone's favorite clown Pennywise back into the spotlight for a theatrical redux of Stephen King's novel IT to be produced by Lin Pictures and Vertigo Entertainment.


    According to The Hollywood Reporter Dave Kajganich (The Invasion) has been brought on to pen the script, "which 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. 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."

    In a twist (because oh, how Hollywood loves a twist) even though the book and the TV mini-series were set in 1958 and 1985, this feature version will take place predominantly in the present day. Hell, who needs backstory and character development? Am I right? At the very least maybe Dave will be able to fix that really dumb ending. A giant spider? Really?

    Kajganich will also be writing both the Pet Semetary and Escape From New York remakes. Keep it here for more.

    Why so glum? It can't be worse than the 1990 miniseries. Even though I only saw the beginning of that, I turned it off in disgust even without having read the book. It was so bad, in so many ways.

    You're right Pablo it can't be worse than the miniseries. Still, "not worse than the miniseries" is not quite something to look forward to. It's like saying getting shot by a firing squad is not as bad as being tortured to death. Either way, the end result is the same.

    Yeah, only suckers want the ending King wrote.

    I also see from that last line there will be a Pet Sematary remake. Must everything be remade? Why is it the leading trend in Hollywood to make "cover movies?" I always wanted to be a director. I suppose I should just start working on remaking existing movies. Originality is no longer needed.
