IT remakePosted: June 7, 2006, 19:42:53
Here are some news about the remake of IT:
Peter Filardi is becoming the go-to guy for television horror adaptations. The FLATLINERS and THE CRAFT scribe cut his teeth on small-screen scares with 2004ís redux of íSALEMíS LOT for TNT, and this summer heís back with the network on THE ROAD VIRUS HEADS NORTH, one of eight Stephen King-based minimovies in the series NIGHTMARES AND DREAMSCAPES, which bows July 12.
During a panel discussion at Fangoís Weekend of Horrors in Burbank, Filardi dished a few details on some fresh projects heís got in the works. On the King side, the writer told Fango heís still developing a new televisualization of the authorís epic novel IT (previously done as a two-part ABC movie in 1990). Originally slated for TNT as a two-hour movie, IT has now caught the interest of the Sci Fi Channel, which wants to stretch it out (and rightfully so!) to a four-hour broadcast event. You may recall that early reports stated Filardiís approach to the material would be to tell IT through the eyes of the character of Beverly Marsh.
