Stephen King has seen a cut of It & says they've done a "wonderful job"

03.07.2017

The IT movie is still a few months away and we’ve gotten several looks at the titular killer clown (Bill Skarsgard) as well as the cast of youngsters whom he will instill nightmares in. We haven’t see footage though, but apparently we’re the only ones because IT author, Stephen King, has seen a cut of the movie and wants us to know he likes what he’s seen.

Taking to his Instagram account recently, producer and author of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE WITH ZOMBIES, Seth Grahame-Smith, posted a picture relaying Mr. King’s message about what he thought of the cut, saying the production has “done a wonderful job.”

 

I can die now. Goodbye. I'm dead. 🎈

King has notably been critical of some of his book’s adaptations in the past, such as Stanley Kubrick’s THE SHINING. He hated where the famed director took the material, despite the fact the movie is a beloved horror classic. This may nullify the author’s opinions on movies till the end of time for some, but fans of the writer will probably find solace in his kind words toward the upcoming flick, especially if they’ve been unsure how it would turn out.

King’s words provide me with some comfort, considering he probably wouldn’t have said anything at all if it were terrible. But I still need to see some footage before I can have a real opinion on this project. I need to see where director Andrés Muschietti is taking this so I can feel whether it has the potential to scare the holy hell out of me. I mean, I know it will, I'm just trying to hide my fear so people don't know I'm a giant baby...which I know isn't working.

IT arrives September 8.

He might as well have said "meh". His response seems generic and you can almost feel the disappointment in the words. Now if we got a reaction like he had when he watched Stand by Me, then wed know we have something special coming our way, I have officially lost even more excitement for this film even after Carey left....the only saving grace for me is that I heard they are using a lot of Carey's script, so we'll see, I will no doubt watch it regardless

Of course he is going to say it is good. It is based on his novel. Yes, I know he didn't like The Shining, but liked the updated version of it. Cary's script, which was ok, had some really creepy parts in it but felt kind of distanced from the feel of the novel. I wouldn't mind them using some of the IT encounters, but I hope the new guys put more of the novel into the movie. Plus, the relationships didn't have the strength that they should be since it is one of the key aspects of the

King has an inconsistent record when it comes to his opinions on films of his adapted work. He hated Kubrick's The Shining but loved the made for tv version. He loved The Mist and The Green Mile, but he's also loved Cujo and the remake of Carrie. I can't wait until he hypes up The Dark Tower which I have no confidence in.

I'm sure like everyone on here

I'm a huge, gigantic, and forever fan of Stephen King. That being said, I think I would be more excited if he said, "Wow, I fucking hated what they did with 'IT'!"

I'll decide for myself, Mr. King.

King has not been a good judge of movies or shows based on his work. As Leadhand83 brought up, King hates Kubricks The Shining. But then loved the recent The Dome which really was bad IMO.

So since King hated the Shining and enjoyedthis, I'm sure this will be a sub par horror.
