Screenwriter Nick Antosca's traveling from Hannibal Lecter's dinner table to the blood-splattered shores of Camp Crystal Lake. Currently working on the script for the new Friday the 13th movie, Antosca recently revealed a key detail on the next installment.

While responding to questions on Twitter, Antosca revealed that the new Friday the 13th film will not be a sequel to the 2009 reboot:

@TwistedKhy it's not a sequel to the 2009 version. Different characters, time period, style.

Director Cary Fukunaga Departs New Line’s Adaptation of Stephen King’s It

25 May 2015 4:12 PM, PDT

Cary Fukunaga was going to film Pennywise the clown's Derry-based reign of terror this summer, but it's now been revealed that Fukunaga has left the director's chair of New Line's adaptation of Stephen King's It, with principal photography delayed as a result.

TheWrap reports the news of Fukunaga's departure from It, revealing that the True Detective director felt creatively compromised as the film approached the start of filming in mid-June. Production on the It movie is now postponed and it's not certain how soon Fukunaga will be replaced or when production on the project will move forward.

Warner Bros. subsidiary New Line Cinema (which took on the It film last May) recently requested budget cuts on the adaptation of Stephen King's It (initially approved for a $30 million budget) and are strongly considering trimming the project down to one film, which conflicted with Fukunaga and Chase Palmer's ambitious two-movie screenplay adaptation of the epic 1986 novel. »
