Stephen King IT Movie Adaptation finds ‘Mama’ Director

pennywise livesTHR is reporting that Andy Muschietti – the filmmaker behind the 2013 supernatural horror film Mama – is in negotiations to direct the new Movie Adaptation of Stephen King IT . The lose of the previous director was over budget concerns, and as Muschietti’s last film cost only $15 million to produce, it’s likely he’ll be able to meet the studio’s demands. Once his deal is finalized, New Line will proceed with a search for a new screenwriter to revise the previous script draft (penned by Fukunaga and his writing partner, Chase Palmer) to suit this latest creative shift.
