Andy Muschietti Named Director For ‘It’ Remake, Replacing Cary Fukunaga
Director Cary Fukunaga is no longer in charge of adapting again Stephen King’s classic It after he reportedly stormed out from New Line Cinema after he had arguments over how to film the movie.
New Line Cinema announced that the Argentinean director Andy Muschietti will take over from Fukunaga directing this second adaptation of the horror book, which has been in the works for more than six years now. This will be the second movie for Muschietti, who directed Mama in 2013 starring Jessica Chastain.
The film hasn’t been given a start date yet, but it was initially scheduled to begin in June. Like the first one, it will be split in two parts. The clown hasn’t returned yet kids, but no worries, it will soon.
