Warner Bros. has officially announced the release date for the upcoming remake of the Stephen King’s It. The Andy Muscetti directed project will hit theaters on September 7, 2017.
It was originally going to be directed and written by the brilliant Carey Fukanaga. However, due to a series of creative disagreements with the studio, he dropped out of the project.
Now, the adaptation will hit theaters thanks to Muscetti along with Gary Doberman reworking the script. There is no word yet whether Will Poulter will remain in the role of Pennywise. Producer Roy Lee recently told Collider that the studio is hoping to begin production this year.
Right now, there is no word on who will star in the roles of the kids and the adults. However, with production beginning this year, more details are expected to release over the next few months.
