With the remake of It on the way, there’s no better time to look back at director Tommy Lee Wallace’s original 1990 miniseries adaptation of Stephen King’s horror novel, and that’s exactly what the filmmakers behind RoboDoc: The Creation Of RoboCop and You’re So Cool, Brewster! The Story Of Fright Night are planning to do—if they can raise enough money, that is. The team has launched an Indiegogo page to fund a new film project called Pennywise: The Story Of It, and they’re looking to raise about $25,000 to pay for the travel and production that the documentary will require.
This isn’t just a bunch of fans talking about It, though, as the Indiegogo page explains that they’ve lined up interviews with a whole bunch of people who worked on or appeared in the original miniseries, including Tommy Lee Wallace himself and Tim Curry—who played Pennywise and will be making his “first in-depth interview” about the character for this documentary. Of course, that kind of stuff requires money, and unlike some Indiegogo campaigns, this one won’t happen unless the filmmakers are able to get all of the donations they’re asking for. Supporters will be able to get the usual array of rewards, including a Blu-ray copy of the movie, a t-shirt, and—if you really hand over some serious cash—an executive producer credit (complete with an IMDB page).
