News came out this week that Andy Muschietti, director of the indie horror hit Mama, is in talks to helm a big-screen adaptation of Stephen King’s classic 1986 book It. The project has been in development for years, and at one point director Cary Fukunaga was attached, but he recently dropped out due to budget concerns.
Now we have a question for you: What is the best movie adaptation of a Stephen King book? Feel free to vote for a classic like Brian De Palma’s Carrie or Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, something based off one of his novella’s like Stand by Me and Shawshank Redemption or even a TV movie like The Stand and It. We’ll even count movies based off books by his pseudonym Richard Bachman like Thinner and The Running Man. Vote for whatever Stephen King movie you want, but please only vote once and only for a single selection.
