Cary Fukunaga's IT (with Emily Gagne)

Jun 01, 09:00 AM
The Development Hell podcast unearths Cary Fukunaga’s (TRUE DETECTIVE) unmade adaptation of Stephen King’s IT! 

With guest Emily Gagne (BEST FRIENDS FOREVER), this new episode uncovers a very different (and darker) vision of Stephen King’s seminal work of terror. 

Emily Gagne is a filmmaker, podcaster and writer. She curates FINAL GIRL FASHION on Instagram, an account showcasing the killer outfits of women in horror. Emily also co-hosts the podcasts We Really Like Her! And What About Meryll. 

Together we cover the IT miniseries, both feature films and the classic Stephen King novel which started it all. That’s when we dive into Cary Fukunaga’s and Chase Palmer's 2014 draft of the IT adaptation which was ultimately cancelled. 

Furthermore, we explore the nitty-gritty differences between the Andy Muschietti vision of Derry and how it compares to the Fukanga/Chase draft. We also speculate wildly about why Warner Brothers jumped ship after developing IT with Fukanga for nearly five years. 

If you are a fan of Stephen King’s IT and Pennywise the Dancing Clown? If so, you won't want to miss this episode.
