Warner Bros. is planning to split It into two films amd has tapped Cary Fukunaga (Jane Eyre) to direct its adaptation of Stephen King’s horror thriller with Fukunaga co-writing the script with Chase Palmer, reports Variety.
Warner Bros. tapped Dave Kajganich to adapt the novel in 2009 and had planned for a single movie at that point. ““It” centers on seven children in a small Maine town who confront the source of a series of murders in 1958 and again in 1985, when the cycle begins again.”
The novel was previously adapted into a 1990 ABC miniseries.
A quarter of Warner-based producers — Roy Lee, Dan Lin and the team of Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg via their Katz-Smith banner — are producing the long-in-development project. Jon Silk is co-producing.
