With twenty years and a truck load of reasons for this movie to be remade it seems like we finally some progress. The original which was made in 1990 is immensly enjoyable but missed much of the gore and darkness that made the book so brilliant. Tim Curry’s portrayal of Pennywise truly carried the tv miniseries. Tim did not comment on the remake but a photosnapped just after summarised his feelings on the project.

Now the opportunity to go to those darkner places seems like it’s within our grasp and I for one am looking forward to seeing what they do. I guess everyones main concern, the length of the book compared to the screen time available, has been indentified hence the 2-part extravaganza. Watch this space.
