In 2009, Creator/WarnerBros (who owned Creator/{{Lorimar}} when the original TV adaption was made, but was folded into Warner Bros. TV in 1993) announced that a remake of ''It'' was being planned ([[Film/It2017 which has its own page]]), with Dan Lin, Roy Lee and Doug Davison tabbed to produce. However, the film spent some time in DevelopmentHell until Andrés Muschietti, director of ''Film/{{Mama}}'', was attached and production began in summer 2016, with [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Skarsgård Bill Skarsgård]] as Pennywise the Dancing Clown. Part One of the film will be released on September 8, 2017.

Not to be confused with [[Film/{{It}} the 1927 silent film of the same name]], which introduced the phrase "It Girl" to the world. Or 1958's ''Film/ItTheTerrorFromBeyondSpace''. Or the debut album by Music/{{Pulp}}. Or the BigBad of ''Literature/AWrinkleInTime''. Or the Psammead of ''Literature/FiveChildrenAndIt''. Or [[Series/TheAddamsFamily Cousin Itt]]. Or the guys down in the sub-basement who (we hope) run the [[Tropers/TheAdvertisementServer TV Tropes Server]]. [[OverlyLongGag Or the pronoun]].
