Cary Fukunaga reveals new information on why the remake of ‘It’ fell apart.

Cary Fukunaga has finally explained the reasons behind him backing out from a movie remake of Stephen King’s ‘It’. Cary had already been engrossed in writing the script with Chase Palmer on the project.

Cary became a part of this project in 2012. Now the studio is busy looking for a new director with a fresh script. Cary Fukunaga explained in an interview to Variety why he left New Line’s horror movie remake of Stephen King’s “It.”

Cary had his own plan about the movie. He wanted to make ‘It’ into two films. Early reports had stated that Cary had left the project due to budgetary concerns. Yet Cary has made it clear that the budget was not an issue.

The studio and Cary had agreed on making the two films for $32 million. The real problem between the two arose over the direction of the story. Cary stated that the budget was perfectly fine but I wanted two movies and the studio didn’t care about that.

He explained that in the first movie he was trying to make an elevated horror film with actual characters. Yet the studio didn’t want any characters. The studio wanted Cary to make a much more inoffensive, conventional script. But Cary wanted to make an unconventional horror film. 

Cary also revealed that the studio was rejecting everything that he was proposing and wanted changes. He also stated that he didn’t want to make a movie where he was being micro-managed all the way through production.
