Andy Muschietti’s It Adaptation Finally Enters Production

7 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s a headline that we thought would never see the light of day: Production on Andy Muschietti’s It is now officially underway.

Word comes by way of Instagram (via ComingSoon), where the Mama filmmaker posted a picture of a director’s chair inscribed with the famous, bloody logo synonymous with Stephen King’s horror hit.

Simple and to the point, the image heralds the end of a pre-production period lumbered with numerous creative setbacks, after Warner Bros. effectively placed the two-part adaptation on ice once Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) made tracks toward the exit door citing budget cuts and creative differences. One short trip to the drawing board later and It has emerged sporting a flock of new talent.

Bill Skarsgard of Hemlock Grove fame recently clinched the coveted role of Pennywise the clown, the nightmarish entity set to terrorize two generations of the Losers Club. That’s »

2016 Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Limited Series

29 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quick Hits

• Last Year’s Winner: “Olive Kitteridge

• Was It an Upset? Nope • Still Eligible? Nope • Hot Streak: “American Horror Story” has earned a nomination in this category (or its similarly titled iterations) every year of its existence, but it’s never won.

• Fun Fact: In 2009 and 2010, there were only two nominees in this category, which lead for it to be merged with TV Movies from 2011 – 2013. Now, limited series are arguably the most in demand storytelling medium on television.

FX has cornered the market on anthology series, offering three strong contenders for the upcoming race, any one of which could end up taking home the title. “American Horror Story: Hotel” looks to continue the good favor Ryan Murphy’s horror franchise has enjoyed with the TV Academy over its first four seasons, and the prolific producer will have another horse in the race with “The People v. O.J. Simpson,” an »

TV Horror Comes Home When Friday The 13th: The Complete TV Series and Tales From The Darkside: The Complete Series Arrives This September!

September 6th looks to be quite the day for classic TV horror. Thanks to the crew over at CBS DVD and Paramount, both Friday The 13th: The Complete Series and Tales From The Darkside: The Complete Series are hitting DVD in interesting new packing. Personally, I’m a fan of both, and with last year’s Awesome Curious Goods: Behind the Scenes of Friday The 13th: The Series book by Alyse Wax being such an in depth refresher, it’ll be cool to revisit the episodes that stood out in that great read.

Pennywise's New Look Teased as It Begins Shooting

28 June 2016 11:59 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After several years of development, Stephen King's iconic novel It is finally heading to the big screen, with New Line Cinema setting a September 8, 2017 release date. Yesterday, director Andres Muschietti revealed that production has gotten under way on this horror adaptation, teasing the logo, as seen on the back of his director's chair. But there is another illustration that is even more intriguing and revealing. A quick glance at the filmmaker's social media profiles reveals what could be an early, yet crude, look at the new Pennywise.

Director Andres Muschietti's Instagram was updated yesterday with a photo of his director's chair, and also over the weekend with a photo featuring his production office. However, a photo from 21 weeks ago offers a hand-drawn glimpse at his version of Pennywise. We reported last month that Bill Skarsgard (Hemlock Grove) has come aboard to play Pennywise, but it isn't clear when we'll »

Cell Review

26 June 2016 4:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Remember that long-shelved adaptation of Stephen King’s Cell? It’s totally out now, available to rent on VOD. No marketing, no enthusiasm – all signs pointed towards an outdated, forgettable watch. Even the promotional poster on my television’s On-Demand screen was haplessly cobbled together, featuring Samuel L. Jackson’s shiny bald dome and clean-shaven face…even though he’s never seen in the film without a hat, or without facial hair. For all accounts and purposes, it seems like no one wants you to watch Cell, and after doing so myself, I’ll join that chorus of voices. There have been some phenomenal cinematic adaptations of Stephen King material – this is not one of them.

John Cusack stars as Clay Riddell, a graphic novelist who finds himself in a zombie-apocalypse situation caused by cell phone signals. You know, those devices glued to people’s hands and ears 99% of the time? »

In 1981 five friends traveled to a cabin in the woods, where they unknowingly released flesh-possessing demons. The story, know known as “Evil Dead,” became one of the best cult classic films and launched Bruce Campbell and director Sam Raimi’s careers.

The low budget horror flick was screened at the 1982 Cannes Film Festival, with Stephen King even praising the film. Once it was distributed by New Line Cinema it went on to earn $2.4 million worldwide.

J.J. Abrams & Bridget Carpenter On ‘11.22.63’: “It’s The Ultimate What If” – Awardsline

24 June 2016 5:43 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

When Stephen King first approached J.J. Abrams to adapt his novel 11/22/63 for the screen, King had a film in mind. Abrams had other ideas. "When he asked, my first reaction was, 'Yes.'" Abrams says. "My second reaction was, 'Would you be open to doing this not as a film, but for television, in whatever form?’" The limited series that emerged from this collaboration was thanks in no small part to exec producer and writer Bridget Carpenter who adapted the book.
