Cary Fukunaga to direct film version of Stephen King's It

Director Cary Fukunaga is set to bring Stephen King's classic horror novel It to the big screen in two movies.

The Jane Eyre filmmaker has teamed up with screenwriter Chase Palmer to adapt the 1986 book for the bumper project, according to entertainment news website The Hollywood Reporter.

The scary story, about a group of kids in the Losers Club which encounters a terrifying, child-preying creature called It, was previously brought to life in a TV mini-series in 1990.
