I love the Stephen King book "IT". The film was good and Tim Curry was classic as "Pennywise". I admit---I've always feared clowns and Tim Curry seems to bring the character to life beyond the film.

Personally, I think they should not REMAKE this film. I don't think anyone could capture the twisted essence of Pennywise like Tim Curry did.:eek:

Some movies they should just let be. What ever happened to originality? Oops! I forgot the filmmakers are running out of ideas and now want to remake films over & over again.:rolleyes:

To me this remake makes sense.

There's a LOT from the original that could be done better, especially the ending that was, lets be honest, an insult to the book.

Looking forward to see it.

Agree, Tim Curry was a really good Pennywise but I wouldn't mind a remake. There is nothing overly stunning about the first 'imagining' (:rolleyes: ) that couldnt be improved upon.

Ive never been afraid of clowns but I do have an irrational hatred of them.

They should have Bill Moseley or that guy who played Rosache as Pennywise, perhaps Frank Darabont ("Shawshank Redemption" and "Green Mile" including "Mist") as director.

You make a good point. The original film didn't capture everything which was described in great detail in the book.

Zero mentioned earlier that the adults were quite lame---I agree. The characters were more charismatic as children. If there is a remake of this wonderful Stephen King tale I really hope that the director & everyone involved takes this seriously. I don't want to see another horror remake flop.

A lot of actors could play Pennywise. Who says he has to sound like Tim Curry?

Personally i would prefer a more creepy sounding Pennywise in the remake.

I agree with you. The book was very good but the movie left alot out. I love Tim Curry i felt like he was the best pennywise, I would love to see who they would cast today as him. Although i too am tired of the poorly made remake i think this remake makes sense. Im also looking forward to seeing it.

Stephen King's IT Remake 2011

Don't know if this was mentioned...but this is one of the SCARIEST films for me ever and they are officially remaking this film! It will be an "R-rated" film too! More info: http://showhype.com/story/writer_tal...emake_r_rated/

Also, check my site for the Limited Edition Tim Curry IT doll at http://www.horrorsniped.com

I also want to see how the Pet Sematary remake will do...that will be verrrry interesting.
