It 2011 teaser poster

It is a planned film that was supposed to be directed by David Kajganich. In 2009, Variety reported that Warner Bros. Pictures and Paramount Pictures would be bringing Stephen King's novel to the big screen, with David Kajganich to adapt King's novel, while Dan Lin, Roy Lee and Doug Davison would be producing the piece. The film was scheduled for a 2011 release.


The plot would be the same thing as the novel, but with different changes, for instance, when the Losers' Club are kids, the story would be set in 1985, while they are adults, the story would be set in either 2011 or 2012.
