After True Detective, I am so pumped. This clown terrorized my nightmares as a child.

I hope it's darker. I liked the IT miniseries, but I'm excited for this.

This could potentially be very good.

So am I reading correct that they are adapting it into a standard feature-length film?

I read it as such. Either that, or a 2 part. I just want them to make sure to stay true to the source material.

Can you actually top Tim Curry as Pennywise though?

Doubtful. He was great. Maybe he reprises his role?

I'd prefer an 8-10 episode series. There really is a lot of material there. Obviously as mentioned above, they would have to tread lightly with the idea of preteens engaging in what goes on, even for HBO that might be pushing it.

I would rather see this is as a two part movie, than a television series. It's one of my all time favorite novels and it would be amazing to see it get the proper treatment it deserves. Although there is just so much that will be missing / lost in translation on screen, as most people think it's simply about a killer clown and not much else. I revisit It every few years, and always reading it during the summer season. It brings back a strange wave of childhood nostalgia for me, even though I did not grow up in the time period with which the kids' portion of the story takes place.

And anyone else think that Tom Hiddleston could make a pretty good Pennywise?

I think he would do a fine job. Tim Curry IS Pennywise though. Anyone who would take the role would have big shoes to fill, but I said the same thing about Heath Ledger and Jack Nicholson.

Don't think you could make a well made film for The Stand without it being about 4 hours, and people wouldn't like that. A miniseries was the correct choice.

If this has indeed been tabled for a few years, I hope this rumor has legs. I think Fukunaga could nail it.

Like "IT" THE Stand has been in preproduction several times--two have been produced already and a third has also been green lighted
