Hollywood adaptation of Stephen King’s It loses its director

The long-gestating Hollywood adaptation of Stephen King’s It has hit another snag. Just weeks before the film was set to go into production, director Cary Fukunaga has ended his involvement.

According to Variety, New Line’s original plans for two separate films were downsized due to budgetary concerns. Fukunaga vehemently disagreed with the idea of re-creating the 1,138-page novel in one single movie, thus leading to his departure.

Die to this development, production has stalled, reports Variety.

Fans of King can take solace over the plans for two other adaptations, including the Sony-helmed Dark Tower series, and Hulu’s forthcoming series based on 11/22/63.
