Ever since the initial announcement of a new It film in the works a while back, the project has been met with many roadblocks. Originally set to be in production last year and be made into two films, the movie was post-poned as it lost it’s director and main actor. The new director will be Andres Muschietti, whom is best known for the successful horror film ‘Mama.’ Production is set to begin relatively soon sometime within the next few months with an official release date now set for September 18th, 2017.
As far as who will play the infamous Pennywise, it is unknown at this time. Will Poulter was originally cast but dropped out of the film due to scheduling conflicts.
