“ BILL DENBOROUGH
Stuttering Bill needs sensitivity with strength. The glue that bonds the group together. I could also see Edward Norton or John Cusack here, but another young actor would have to be considered then. ” - JamesEGuidry

“ young BILL DENBOROUGH
british persuasion here, studdering Bill doesn't say a whole lot as a kid and, in my version, isn't the clear-cut winner over Ben for Bev's affections. none of them are. the orge is AWKWARD! ” - JamesEGuidry
 
3.
Colin Farrell

Farrell was born on May 31...
“ BEN HANSCOM
Big Ben needs to be in stark contrast to Bill. Colin Farrell as a man haunted by his past, both phyically and mentally. Has the range needed for the character. I like the thought of a "Jason Statham" type for Ben, but he needs to be a great actor. ” - JamesEGuidry

“ young BEN HANSCOM
Angus will have to pack back on the pounds! He'll also have to practice an Irish accent! LOL Obviously, this version should take place in L.A. or England for that matter! ” - JamesEGuidry

“ BEVERLY MARSH
I really want Lindsay Lohan here, but she's too young! Moore is too old, but what am I gonna do? As long as she doesn't get in the way of all the Oscar talent around her! LMAO! ” - JamesEGuidry

“ RICHIE TOZIER
Beep Beep Richie! I thought about this part forever and I can't think of anyone better! Character needs to be a man of a thousand voices. I hate to say it, but my vision has a budget! ” - JamesEGuidry

The future "Odd Thomas" star will one day be playing Doctor Who on BBC America imho but, in the meantime, he can take a pay-cut and be in my movie! ” - JamesEGuidry
 
9.
“ EDDIE KASPBRAK
A lot of different ways to go with "Weezy". Nothing too over the top. Jon Heder maybe? I like the thought of Jon Cryer on the big screen again! ” - JamesEGuidry

“ young EDDIE KASPBACK
Again, another rising star that probably has better things to do than be in my silly remake! Tweeny-boppers will loathe my choice to make such a hottie into Duckie, but IT messed this kid up! Weezy is as Weezy does! ” - JamesEGuidry

“ MIKE HANLON
Perfect type-cast! We finally get a more in-depth look at this character including The Black Spot. Getting the gang together will take more painstaking means in my version, like get off your @ss and go get everybody! ” - JamesEGuidry

“ STANLEY URIS

“ young STANLEY URIS
Ok he's not Jewish! He's also tougher than his novel counterpart. I believe Stan saved the group when he encountered IT, seeing IT in it's true form. Deeply misunderstood but a hero nonetheless! ” - JamesEGuidry

“ PENNYWISE THE CLOWN
There's nothing to say here. I thought about bringing back Michael Keaton. Maybe even Tim Curry again. As long as it's not Robin Williams! Regardless how they make the re-make, RDJ is Pennywise. Period. ” - JamesEGuidry
