Stephen King's 'It' to be directed by Cary Fukunaga in two films

pennywise-it-movie-abc.jpgPrepare to be freaked out once again by Stephen King's evil clown Pennywise. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Cary Fukunaga ( "Jane Eyre") is set to direct Warner Bros' adaptation over two films and will co-write the script with Chase Palmer, who adapted "Dune" for Paramount.  

King's 1986 book follows a group of kids who encounter a demon that preys on children by taking the form of an evil clown. When It returns 30 years later, the kids -- now adults -- have to regroup to battle It again.

"It" was previously adapted as a television miniseries in 1990, starring John Ritter, Harry Anderson, Tim Reid, Annette O'Toole, Richard Thomas and Tim Curry.
