    A good example of under-estimating an actor was Heath Ledger as The Joker/ I personally don't know who this guy is and probably wont watch it since I despise remakes but it is what it is and he might do good in the role. We honestly cant judge until we see it but Im not expecting much, not because of Pennywise, but as a whole film.

    I put that beind a spoiler tag for a reason!

    Putting it the way you did, yes it's just not right. But reading it in the context that it is in within the book it is very fitting and very symbolic of what the book represents.
    Sorry to burst anyone's bubble but IT isn't about an evil clown or monster in the end. It is about growing up and going through the trials and tribulations of life.

    The scene with them in the sewer is perfectly written and fits the story perfectly. Referring to it as a kid orgy is a knee-jerk reaction to not understanding what it means and how it was executed.
    This is another example of why the movie fails. The movie tries to hit the true meaning of IT but misses the mark completely in the end.

    remake or not, if every movie was the same it would be boring and hated anyway. I am all for filmmakers putting their own twist on remakes but it doesn't mean I will like it

    I'm sick of people bringing up Heath Ledger. Overrated performance in an overrated film.

    No, I'm not expecting much either. Tim Curry is up there with the great actors. This guy is nothing.

    Hey man, if it works in the story then I have no problem with it. I just used the term "kid orgy" because it's easy. Stephen King is one of my favourite authors. I like that he breaks down taboos like that. I just don't know how it could work in a movie.

    Actually there are a number of King books that relate to growing up, so it doesn't pop my bubble

    Yeah I wasn't referring to anyone specifically. However you know as well as I that there are a ton of people out there who think this movie is simply about a killer clown/creature and don't understand the true meaning behind the story.

    Director Cary Fukunaga has left the project due to "budgetary reasons that stem from a difference in creative visions." Filming was reportedly going to begin three weeks from now, but now production is put on hold.

    Fukunaga repeatedly clashed with the studio and did not want to compromise his artistic vision in the wake of budget cuts that were recently demanded by New Line, which greenlit the first film at $30 million. The situation came to a head over Memorial Day weekend, leading to Fukunaga’s abrupt exit from the ambitious project.

    “It” was originally set up at Warner Bros. before moving to New Line in recent weeks, which was one reason behind the unfortunate split. Shooting locations were another issue at the heart of the departure, with Fukunaga expressing a strong desire to film in New York, which is more expensive than other locales. Another source indicated that New Line was getting cold feet about the project in the wake of the less-than-stellar opening of “Poltergeist,” which featured a clown in its marketing materials.

    As the start of production loomed in mid-June, Fukunaga’s recent drafts were coming in over-budget, and New Line has had success with genre movies when it has maintained a hard financial line. The budget conflict over “It” had been brewing for weeks, as Fukunaga discovered when he initially tried to cast Ben Mendelsohn as the titular villain.

    While many assumed Mendelsohn was forced to turn down “It” due to his pending involvement in “Star Wars: Rogue One,” an individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap that the Australian actor could’ve starred in both movies — “It” in June and “Rogue One” in September — but New Line wanted Mendelsohn to take a sizable pay cut, prompting him to pass on the project.

    Agreed. That's the issue with a lot of films--the studio forcing filmmakers to change their vision

    It's nice to hear about someone that didn't settle for a change and put something out that they really didn't want to.

    The problem is the studio will find someone who will and in the end the movie will still suffer from IT.
