Aww why?

I think this remake won't really satisfy me...it being set in the 80's will mess with the story too much..kids of the eighties were not exactly as innocent as kids in the 1950's

I put it down socio-political factors, coupled with my general crumminess as a filmmaker.

Now that Tech is gone it will have to be Wilbert, or Peter Jackson.

Wilbert or Peter Jackson...very hard decision...if we want multiple endings..Peter Jackson it is...IT does kinda have multiple endings...Wilbert...what can you bring to the table?

On a more serious note (I didn't get to finish the book, had 50 pages to go and left it on the train)
it will still have to get a bit of a chopping but then again King does like to pad things. I wonder what things will have to be left out. Chances are it won't be much longer than 2 and a half hours.

Some train conductor probably has it, good job it wasn't one of those electronic amazon things with hundreds of books downloaded on it. Will get another copy tomorrow as The Name of the Rose isn't doing it for me.

It would be possible to cut large chunks of the story out without disrupting the narrative flow in my opinion, alot of it is scene setting anyway. The deaths of some of the characters can be done away with. Stanley Uris brief adventure while birdwatching can be mentioned briefly. All the problems the kids face with their parents can be hinted at instead of explored.

Pare it down to bare essentials I would argue.

I still think another TV mini series is the wiser option.

The longest a mainstream feature like this can be is 120 minutes, no way enough time to cover all the main characters let alone the additional ones.

Although I do remember hearing that this version would focus on Beverly Marsh...

No I genuinely remember reading that the film would focus on her.

I reckon Ben would be better personally. I just feel he would be better character to work with..Beverly Marsh story is very heavy and harsh in places.

I don't think it works if they single one out, the story is about all of them.

Ben is my fav.



BOOK SPOILERS

Glad he got Beverly in the end.

Gahh! I wouldn't go see this movie if you paid me to,not that sounds dumb, it's just I HATE clowns,(and no The Joker doesn't count, because it's Heath Ledger) but circus looking clowns, of course so does Johnny Depp so I am in good company.

After The Green Mile Sam Rockwell is a possibility but also in the running for me is Cillian Murphy and the wide eyed menace of Tom Hardy

Some films should never be remade, surely IT qualifies as one. The original was class, not sure about this though.

Why not put in 2 parts have the 1st part look at the kids and the 2nd part the adults that way they could get more depth out of each story :]
