Stephen King’s IT | Remake This Movie RIGHT!

Season 2 gets off to a bang as we float down memory lane towards the town of Derry and a sadistic clown named Pennywise. Seven outcasts form the unusual ‘Loser’s Club’, and they band together to fight an ancient evil who takes the form of the aforementioned Pennywise. Stephen King’s IT has long-deserved a faithful adaptation, and we think we have it all figured out. Listen to our latest as we try to Remake This Movie RIGHT!

What IS Remake This Movie RIGHT?

Remake This Movie RIGHT! is a bi-weekly podcast where we take a classic film that is actively being remade by Hollywood studio execs, and craft our own version for a modern retelling. Does the story need updating? Should characters or motives be tweaked? Do we need more muppets? We take all factors into account, concoct our film, and then offer a Final Pitch to you in movie trailer form. By the end of each episode, we will Remake This Movie RIGHT!

Our show is broken down into three distinct parts:

The Original: We discuss the original film’s impact on us and history, some quick trivia bits, what worked the best from the film and therefore must remain in our upcoming remake, as well as what didn’t work or what needs to be changed for today’s audiences. Most importantly, should this film even be remake?

The Remake: We put together our movie! What story do we want to tell, how close to the original will it be, who will star, and ultimately who should direct our eventual cinematic masterpiece? Our hosts work together to put together one cohesive movie, but there is one caveat – Each host has one ‘CUT!’ throughout the episode to employ, which could completely derail the entire film.

The Final Pitch: This is where we summarize our remake by utilizing the voice talents of voiceover artist Wayne Henderson and present our finished remake to you in movie trailer form!

    The ‘scene’ you are all talking about symbolizes their passage from child to adulthood. It’s so weirdly North America that this is the section of the book most get hung up on.

    Personally my least favorite bit is that the characters go through this journey but don’t remember it in the end.

    Also agree with you Aaron, Frank Darabount should direct every Stephen King movie. He has a really great grasp on the King universe.

  • Jen Sansevere

    I agree to a point with you about SK and strong female characters, but two instances I can think of that break that mold is Frannie in The Stand (book NOT movie) and Susannah Detta Odetta in TDT.

    • Those are two great examples. They definitely are exceptions to the rule. Frannie was so much better in the book
