Sometimes we just have to part ways.

Earlier this year,  horror fans everywhere were saddened when the director of the remake of Stephen King’s It, was withdrawing from the film. At the time, no information to the uncoupling was announced but Cary Fukunaga has finally spoken out about his departure. In an interview with EW he said:

“It’s never easy. Chase [Palmer] and I had been working on that script for probably three years. There was a lot of our childhood and our experience in it.

Ultimately, we and New Line have to agree on the kind of movie we want to make, and we just wanted to make different movies. It’s like a relationship: you can try to make the other person who you want them to be, but it’s impossible really to change. You just have to work.”

 The project is underway as rumors report that Andy Muschietti, director of Mama, will be taking over the project.
