Stephen King's It will hit our screens

Warners has decided that what we all really need is a dose of pure clown evil. So the studio is bringing Stephen King’s It to the big screen.

Originally a miniseries in 1990, the story follows a group of kids banded together in the Losers Club who encounter a creature of pure evil called, simply It.

But the beast’s favourite form is a sadistic clown called Pennywise, who returns to the town every 30 years to prey on the kids. It strikes again when the kids are grown up, and they have to stop it – even though they can’t remember the original fight.

While the book is set in 1958 and 1985, the new script – which will be penned by Dave Kajganich – will take place in the present day.

There’s no word on an casting yet, but surely Tim Curry could be tempted to slip back into his clown suit…
