This is one scary movie we're definitely looking forward to.
A re-boot for one of the scariest Stephen King films ever released, 'It', is finally coming next year with Andrés Muscietti named as director. However, there's no-one yet attached to the lead villain role of evil shape-shifting clown Pennywise. So who do you think should play him?
Will Poulter from 'The Revenant' was originally in talks for the part, but news has emerged that he has backed out. There's no word yet on whether or not Tim Curry will reprise the role, though it's definitely unlikely as much as we'd love to see him back. Let's look at the specs: Pennywise has his insane laugh, wide smile, gruff voice and is largely humorous. So who could rock those traits the best?
Jim Carrey has clowned around plenty of times before

It joins '10 Cloverfield Lane' and the upcoming ghost story 'The Conjuring 2'.
This year is quite the year for horror. We've already seen a good handful of epic chillers and it's not stopping there. Stephen King's 'Cell' is the latest movie to be announced for release later this year, but here's a look at what we've seen so far and what's to come this summer.
Meet the band in exhilarating horror 'Green Room'
1. Green Room - Patrick Stewart as a ruthless psychopath determined to murder a punk band may seem an unlikely concept but that's what makes this nerve shredding horror (directed by Jeremy Saulnier of 'Blue Ruin') so grippingly intense. When a band shows up at neo-Nazi bar for a show, they unwittingly find themselves witnesses to a brutal murder - and now they're next on the hitlist. Alongside Patrick Stewart, the movie also stars Joe Cole from 'Peaky Blinders', '28 Weeks Later' actress Imogen Poots and 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star Anton Yelchin.

Who will play Pennywise?
There's a lot of Stephen King to look forward to over the next few months; his horror tales consistently make good movies, so much so that sometimes you gotta make them again. Pennywise the evil clown is returning next year in a re-boot of 'It'.
Stephen King's 'It' returns
Many might confess that the last Stephen King character they want to see again is Pennywise; once was enough for a lifetime of nightmares. Nonetheless, this 1990 Primetime Emmy winner is such a popular fear flick that it's being given a modern makeover - we just wonder how they're going to improve on the vision of terror that is that darned clown. It's probably a fact that nobody has booked a clown for their kid's birthday since 1990. Probably.

Matthew McConaughey joins him in the cast.
Stephen King has finally revealed who is going to play the main character in the long-awaited movie adaptation of his self-described magnum opus 'The Dark Tower'. Idris Elba will take on the role of the Gunslinger Roland Deschain, while Matthew Mcconaughey will face-off against him as his onscreen rival.
Idris Elba to star in The Dark Tower
Given the sheer extent of King's bibliography that has found its way on to the big screen in years past, it's surprising to think that his only book series has never been attempted for an adaptation until now. But it's finally coming with 'Beasts Of No Nation' star Idris Elba in the role of Roland Deschain; the titular Gunslinger of his first 'Dark Tower' novel released in 1982.

Witches are scary once again.
The directorial feature debut of Robert Eggers has put the scariness back into witch culture with a critically-acclaimed slow-burning horror that even had Stephen King terrified. 'The Witch' doesn't rely on jumpy moments or grotesque imagery, merely unsettling scenery and a menacing film score. It's a precious release for the horror genre, because genuinely enjoyable (and scary) occult-based films are very few and far between.
We've racked our brains to think of ten of the best witch horrors of all time:

The Colorado hotel that inspired Stephen King to create 'The Overlook Hotel' in the horror classic is planning a $24 million development.
The owners of the iconic Stanley Hotel in Colorado – better known as The Overlook Hotel in the classic horror novel 'The Shining' – are planning to open the world’s first horror-themed museum inside the building, according to a new report.
Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 classic movie, starring Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duval, based on Stephen King's book, was inspired by the vast hotel. Though the interior of the hotel you see in the movie itself was constructed in Elstree Studios in Britain, and the exterior shots are of the Timberline Lodge in Oregon, the Stanley Hotel in Colorado was the inspiration that King used for his 1977 novel.
Stephen King's novel was inspired by a stay at the Stanley Hotel
Cary Fukunaga is out of the 'It' remake.
The True Detective director Cary Fukunaga has left the remake of Stephen King's It after clashing with New Line over his artistic vision. According to The Wrap, the project had suffered early budget cuts and things came to a head over Memorial Day weekend, leading to Fukunaga's abrupt exit.
Cary Fukunaga has left the It remake over a dispute with New Line
It was set to be split into two movies with New Line originally budgeting $30 million for the first movie. Shooting locations were another issue for Fukunaga, who had expressed a strong desire to film in New York, which is more expensive than other locations. Another source claimed New Line had also balked over the stellar opening of Poltergeist, which feature a clown in its marketing.

The first full-length trailer for Guillermo Del Toro's 'Crimson Peak' is just as terrifying as you'd expect from the director of Mimic and The Devil's Backbone.
Back in February, horror fans were given a first glimpse of Guillermo Del Toro's Crimson Peak, and now the acclaimed Mexican director has unveiled the full-length trailer of a film that is sure to top many people's must-see lists this Halloween.
Don't be afraid of the dark... Mia Wasikowska in Crimson Peak
Set in a spooky mansion in Victorian England, Crimson Peak tells the story of a young author, played by Mia Wasikowska, who discovers her charming new husband (Thor's Tom Hiddleston) is not quite who he appears to be.
The series was originally slated to be adapted by Warner Bros. 2012.
Fans of Stephen King can rejoice, as the famed author’s magical series The Dark Tower is finally coming to the big screen. Deadline reports that Sony will be distributing the series of movies, while a complementary TV series is also being developed by MRC.
The author has been patient with plans to bring his series to the big screen.
The series is set in a magical world and centers around Roland Deschain, the last living member of a knightly order known as the 'gunslingers'. The work has been described by the author as his magnum opus and has been called King’s answer to Tolkien’s Middle Earth novels.
Aja's unique horror-comedy marks yet another new tone for Daniel Radcliffe.
As Daniel Radcliffe continues to experiment with movie genres, he has frequently mentioned that he is happiest about his role in the new thriller 'Horns', directed by maverick filmmaker Alexandre Aja. The 36-year-old writer-director has been playing with the horror genre since his 1999 feature debut 'Furia', a post-apocalyptic romp starring a little-known Marion Cotillard.
Daniel Radcliffe and Juno Temple are star-crossed lovers in 'Horns'
After the vicious 'High Tension' (2003) and a pair of remakes ('The Hills Have Eyes' and 'Mirrors'), Aja took a sharp left turn into comedy with the hit 'Piranha 3D'. And now he's combined humour with terror for 'Horns', in which Daniel Radcliffe plays a hapless guy who is suspected of killing his girlfriend (Juno Temple), but discovers that the horns growing out of his head might help him find the real murderer.
