Warner Bros. To Make Clowns Scary Again With 'It' Remake
The studio plans to split the Stephen King book into two films
The book has alot more to it than kids terrorized by a clown. Enough depth? How dare you talk like that about maybe his best story.
Eponymous? Mr. Neuse, your use of the word means that King's 1986 book got it's name from the 1990 film. The clown is a manifestation of the eponymous dark force at work in King's book, but the film adaptation cannot be described as eponymous.
And believe it or not, "It" isn't really about evil clowns at all. **Spoiler alert** It's about the kind of childhood fear that gives birth to urban legends given form and substance. I wouldn't hold out any hope of It translating well to film, even though King did a superb job of capturing that spooky feeling from when I was a kid and another kid pointed at an abandoned house and talked about spooky stuff happening, the kind of stuff only a kid would fear. Fear given form.
The fact that the miniseries left you with that impression just goes to show how bad that portrayal was. Let's hope this one is better.
Not another remake? Everytime they do that they change the story line, I.E Prom Night, Halloween1&2, The Stepford Wives ETC., If ur gonna remake it DONT chnage it. Keep it the same as the book PLEASE.
i'm a new writer - "wanna see something really scary"? come read my new story - i think i might even be able to scare mr king himself! -
on the note for "IT" this story is just about as scary as it gets, the made for TV scared me silly, even though the script was poorly executed, it is the story itself that holds up...i've read 'IT' at least six time over in my lifetime and everytime it sparks fear new and old - i say go for it
